I'm looking for advice while I study at the Centre for Theoretical Physics in Miramare, Trieste for the last two weeks of May.
I don't really want to be in a hotel for that long - it gets too lonely!
Can anyone suggest any other sort of accommodation? I'd prefer self catered.
Do the Italians have the 'pensions' ie bedsitting rooms with kitchenettes for rent?
What about lodging in someone's home?
Any suggestions about transfers to/from the airport?
Is it worth hiring a car or is the public transport good?
I didn't have much of a chance to soak up the Italian culture last time I was in the country so I'm hoping to make up for it this trip.
