Torino: Private Apartments Are Best Option

As I mentioned earlier this week, the best option for securing accommodations ate the Olympic Games is to rent an apartment from a private owner. Bookmark this page on the Dream of Italy Web site because we keep updating it with new offerings. Here are a few that arrived in my e-mail today:

Maria Prat (e-mail: mprat@med.unipmn.it) is a local professor who is renting a double bedroom (with a private bathroom) in her Turin apartment, located five minutes from the Porta Nuova Train Station. She offers daily breakfast as well as high-speed Internet access. She is asking 700 euros per week for two people.

Andrea Dellavecchia (e-mail: andrea.DELLAVECCHIA@iveco.com) has a one-bedroom apartment with a washing machine and satellite TV available. It is located in Turin's Piazza Gran Madre, just across the Po River, and about a 10-minute walk from Piazza Castello. He's asking 350 euros per night.
