An Offbeat Walking Tour

pere lachaise traveling professorI watched the Bruce Willis classic, "The Sixth Sense" the other night.   After waking up after a few nightmares, I dreamed up some Paris "I See Dead People" tours myself.   It's not really a horror story, but it can be a lot of fun to do this offbeat tour next time on vacation in The City of Light.

A Visit to the Paris Catacombs

Offbeat Paris at its Finest

paris catacombsOn our Paris tours we see and do a lot.  On occasion, I get a request to do something offbeat or unusual in Paris.   Sometimes people will ask me to tour the sewers of Paris, sometimes it is the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.   On more than one occasion I have been asked by travelers to tour the pet cemetery located on the outskirts of Paris.   However, at the top of the list of offbeat things to see are the Paris Catacombs.   For a description of this unusual Paris tour, read today's blog post.

Traditional Roman Walk

In One Mile We Can See Thousand of Years of Roman History

Traveling ProfessorOn  tours to Italy we always take a day to walk through the heart of Rome.  As we stroll through the heart of Rome it is a tour through thousands of years of history.   We see some of the most famous sights in all the world.  I know all the health experts say that walking will help someone lose weight, but on our tours of Italy, we consume so much gelato, delicious pizza, tartuffo and other treats, our 1-mile walk through Rome might be an experience where we put on a few pounds, rather than lose them.  Take a look at my blog post to see how we plan our walking tour of Rome while visiting Italy.

Andy Herbach Eating and DrinkingWhenever we go on a small group tour to Italy or Paris (or anywhere else, for that matter), I strongly suggest travelers take a copy of Andy Herbach's books.  Andy Herbach is the author of the Eating & Drinking series of menu translators and restaurant guides, including Eating & Drinking in Paris, Eating & Drinking in Italy, Eating & Drinking in Spain and Portugal and Eating & Drinking in Latin America.  The Professor can tell you, without equivocation, these are the best guides for not only selecting the best places to eat, but in helping diners read and translate what's on the menu.  No more "point and pray" when selecting from a menu.  Andy's guides help you order confidently and correctly from the menu.
