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.

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.

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.
