we’ve picked out all of the hotels we’re staying in. i used Venere to make all the bookings and hope the reservations are waiting for us when we arrive! thought you’d like to see a couple that we’ve chosen at both end of the star scale. in rome were staying at the Albergo Giulio Cesare which is supposed to be a **** establishment. on our last night in paris before flying home, we’re staying at the hotel we stayed the first time we visited the Hotel Palym a lowly ** joint but very nice (they were renovating last time), great location and friendly.
