Here are The Traveling Professor's picks for 4 inexpensive hotels in Paris.

Hôtel Jeanne d’Arc.
You won’t get burned at this quiet little 2-star near the Place de Vosges in the Marais.   Located at 3, rue de Jarente in the 4th arrondissement this cozy spot offers 35 rooms with French country-house décor at rates of 81 to 121 euros for twin/double rooms.  Website:  www.hoteljeannedarc.com.   Note:  not to be confused with the Grand Hotel Jeanne d’Arc.  

Hôtel Tiquetonne.   A one-star wonder located at 6, rue Tiquetonne, it is within 5 minutes walking distance of at least five métro lines and three RER stations at the Chatelet-Les Halles hub in the 1st arrondissement.  All rooms are priced under €100.  Website:  www.hoteltiquetonne.fr.

Hôtel du College de France. The word “elegant” has probably never been used to describe this basic but clean, comfortable and quiet 2-star hotel in the Latin Quarter:  Many travelers have given me positive reports regarding stays at the HDCDF and I can personally vouch for them.  It is an excellent value and well-located. 7, rue Thénard in the Latin quarter. Website:  www.hotel-collegedefrance.com.

Hôtel de Nesle. This eclectic hotel in the 5th arrondissement near the Seine is for those looking for something out of the ordinary.   Each generous sized room is different, themed in its own funky style with cool colors, bold furnishings, antique photos/posters, and painted-on wall murals.  It also has its own garden.  Days Inn it is not.  The owners don’t seem to care if, or how many stars, if any, this hotel has.   Book only by telephone.  Rooms are 85-120 euros per night.  7, rue de Nesle. Website:  www.hoteldenesleparis.com.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.

Why We Love Cruising in Croatia

small ship cruise Croatia

We introduced our Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast cruise with a preview tour in October 2017.  Since then, we have taken many travelers on our 30-person small ship luxury charter on 4 subsequent tours, including 2 this past August. There is a lot to like about visiting Croatia and especially cruising along the Adriatic coast.  The Traveling Professor will tell you all about it, with photos, in his latest blog post about a small group tour to Croatia.  Maybe you will consider a small ship cruise with The Professor too!
