“Scopri gratis l’Italia” 10 000 free overnight stays

FROM FEBRUARY 1TH TO FEBRUARY  28TH, A GREAT JOURNEY OPPORTUNITY FOR ANYONE AND ANYWHERE, TO UNDERLINE THE PRECIOUS ROLE OF AIG AT THE COUNTRY'S SERVICE, SINCE 1945.

"Scopri Gratis l’Italia" is an initiative of the Italian Youth’s Hostel Association, created in collaboration with "Meraviglia Italiana", that aims to encourage the practice of tourism and seasonally adjust the offer.

From 1th to 28th of February 2019, many structures belonging to the network will put 10,000 overnight stays at no cost available for everybody.

You can freely choose the free day you want to stay (in the period from February 1th to February 28th) and, at least a week in advance, send us a request by email. We will tell you if the chosen structure still has availability for the requested date.
You can stay for one night by paying directly to the hostel the only technical reimbursement (maximum of € 2.50) and any tourist taxes. Each optional service - including breakfast, meals, towels - will be at your charge and must be paid at the chosen hostel. Each stay can be extended according to your needs by paying the fee for any extra days directly at the chosen hostel.

Gratuity refers generally to accommodation in a multi-bedded room. If you have different needs, please let us know and the difference in fare will eventually be paid directly on the spot.

We remind you that this initiative is reserved to Hostelling International members. If you are not member, you can join the Youth Hostel Association of your country (see the list at https://www.hihostels.com/pages/our-network-of-hostels) or get an e-membership card through the Hostelling International website (https://www.hihostels.com/checkout)
