Three 2-Star Paris Hotels

Great Values in Paris

2 star hotel parisLodging costs typically make up the most expensive part of a vacation to Paris and in Paris, hotels can be expensive. However, there are several good 2-star picks, and The Traveling Professor has them for you.  2-star Paris hotels can be a great value, but usually they do not have a restaurant (not a big deal in Paris) but probably does not have A/C.   Don't expect a spa or turn-down service.  However, with these picks, expect to get a good night's sleep at a good price.

Why Padua is the Best City to Visit in Italy

Get to See the REAL Italy

small group tours to paduaFor me, there are two parts of Italy.  There are the over-touristy destinations like Rome, Florence, and much of Venice.  They are filled with massive amounts of people, trinket shops on nearly every corner, people trying to sell you all other types of trinkets, long lines, and frankly, some overrated sites.  However, peel away the skin of the onion and discover one of the best-kept secrets in Italy; Padua.  Relatively uncrowded, much cheaper than the other cities mentioned above, much more relaxing, and more fascinating in terms of history and culture, it is The Traveling Professor's favorite Italian city.
