We’ve been looking for a hotel or B & B in or around Mestre with a private bathroom for under $65 eur for 2 adults for 8 - 12 May 2011. We are not planning on renting a car so it needs to be close to a bus stop or train station. Staying in another town is also a possibility if only takes an extra 10 minutes or so to get to Venice.
In May is it really hard to find hotels in Italy at the last minute at a better rate?
We are planning on staying in the area for 4 nights, then on Florence, Rome, and maybe another city during or 16 nights in Italy.
