First i would like to thank you very much for your intrest in my post, I am planning a travel plan that starts from Milan heading north to swizerland ( davos, luzern,interlaken) then south to west of italy then south to rome, then back north to milan , inbetween these places how to get an over night rooms ? Is there signs or just i have to ask around ? And in emirgency i will look for hotels , money is not the issue just i like adventures
i want to change my routine life style for two weeks i want fun stories to tell my family and friends , i have avery good backup regarding financing this trip just the adventure that iam looking for .
I'm not sure how most people get overnight rooms but I personally usually check on the internet before I leave or a coupld of days before I arrive somewhere. For example while in Bern Switzerland on my way to Milan and Venice I went to an internet cafe and did searches online for vacancies as well as checking tripadvisor to see whether there were any suggested places to stay. I would than e-mail the hotels or b & b's and see if they had availability. I only had one issue in five weeks and it the issue only involved moving on the last night to a different place. Another option is to stop at information offices (train stations often have them) and have them provide lists of b & b's with phone numbers. I'm not sure about seeing signs while you are driving. Trip advisor really has great information (www.tripadvisor.com) on many many cities and their hotels and b & b's and you could get the info for them as options before you leave.
If you are going to Milan I highly reccommend Lake Como which is only about an hour away and is beautiful. There are tons of little towns all along the lake that you can take a passenger ferry too so you can base yourself in one town and check out many more during the day.
Rome is amazing. The Coliseum, The Panteon, The Vatican and throwing your coins in the Trevi fountain were my hightlights.
