Subject: hotel reservations in Italy
We leave in about 5 weeks for Europe. We will spend 3 weeks in Italy. For years we have traveled with only hotel reservations for the night we arrive and the and the night before we leave. My husband has read so much about the number of tourist in Italy during the summer of 2000 he has decided we perhaps need hotel reservations this year. This pretty much keeps us on a time schedule which we like to avoid. My questions are: Is Italy over run with travelers this year? Do you think we need to make our hotel reservations?

Thanks, Linda
