Italy offers several unique lodging choices that can add a little diversity to your vacation. Staying in a castle hotel can be fun for kids or a romantic option for couples. Southern Italy offers unusual places to stay such as cave hotels and lodging in trulli, buildings with conical roofs like the one shown in the photo. If you'd like to stay in a restored farm house, see agriturismo accommodations or masseria lodging.
