Possibility of NOT booking Hotels and BB in June

Hi all,

We're planning a trip to the Italian Riviera at the end of June but do actually not want to prebook any hotels/rooms/BB as we want our freedom to go explore the area.

My question is, is this possible in the busy summer season or will we be in for a unpleasant surprise at that time of year?

thanks,

Vincent

It is possible that you will find places OK, but you may not get your first choices in the most popular places. Italian schools' summer vacations begin on June 12, and tourists of other nationalities have also started arriving.

But it is true that the end of June is not as crowded as later in July, and nowhere near as crowded as mid-August.

It will be much easier to find some places during the week, maybe once you have an idea of your itinerary you could book only for the week-ends or book in Italy, but at least 3 or 4 day before
