Airbnb for a local experience
Airbnb offers all sorts of options from renting a room or flat to local experiences such as walking tours or local guides. You can easily communicate with the hosts before booking a place and you won’t be surrounded by tourists! So if you’re avoiding a touristic vibe, I would definitely recommend Airbnb.
