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

Hôtel Prince Albert Louvre. For those museum snobs looking for a place to sleep cheap in a terrific location, this is the place to be.  It’s within easy walking distance of the Louvre, Tuileries, rue St. Honoré shopping, and the Opéra, this 2-star with rates from 90-170 euros might be in your future.  Located at 5, rue Saint Hyacinthe in the desirable 1st arrondissement. 

Hôtel de la Tour Eiffel.Dream away in the shadow of the ET.   Cute but small rooms just a 5-minute walk from the Tower and near some of my favorite restaurants on rue Saint-Dominique.  Rates range from 90-150 euros.  Located on a quiet side street at 17, rue de l'Exposition in the 7th.  

Hôtel de Nice. Some have a love/hate relationship with the hodgepodge decorating of this 3-star, but it overlooks a cute café-lined square across from the Hotel de Ville in the Marais at 42, bis rue de Rivoli in the 4th  arrondissement. Excellent location.  Doubles from 100-200 euros. 

Hôtel Cluny Sorbonne. Latin Quarter 2-star poetry located so close to the Sorbonne, some rooms look into student classrooms at the famous university.  A crowd-pleaser at 8, rue Victor Cousin is situated well for bus, métro, and RER connections.  It’s near the Panthéon and Luxembourg Gardens.  Rates from 75 to 125 euros.  Website:  www.hotel-cluny.fr.

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.   Note:  not to be confused with the Grand Hotel Jeanne d’Arc.  

Why not consider joining one of The Traveling Professor's small group tours to Paris?  Top hotels, expert licensed guides, and a great itinerary ensures a great trip to Paris.

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!
