Am I asking for the impossible, an untouristy town in Italy in July?
I will be in Orvieto and Asissi in July 2012 and want to stay a few days in a small, quiet town with access to Rome airport before my departure to USA. Any ideas you fellow travellers? Last year I thought Florence in September & October would have thinner crowds but it was horribly hot, crowded and ,mosquito ridden, I had an apartment near the Duomo.No one went home until mid -November and still everyone was speaking English. Would the Oltrano have been a better choice as a base? I don;t want to repeat that experience because I returning to learn more Italian and not be innundated with English . Thoughts appreciated.
