Any travel tips for that time of year in those places?
What's the weather like? Most importantly, what kind of shoes are good to pack, not good to bring? Is the weather poor enough to make it a good idea to leave any good shoes at home?
Just how expensive is to eat decently in those cities nowadays with our crap exchange rate?
Will a shirt, sweater, jacket, overcoat and scarf be warm enough?
Was in Provence and Paris a month ago. Just love the place.
Weather in December is cold but you can handle it with multi layering.
Rome: Try to stay near Via Condoti area where the cool shops are. That would be near the Spanish Steps. Since it's low season you can most likely negotiate the rates. Also, check tripadvisor.com for reviews. Tons of great places for pasta and gelato. For gelato try Giollitti.
Paris: Hotels in 7th arr. or Hotel Regina (near Vendome and lots of great shops like Zegna, Cavalli, etc...) Resto: Cafe Roussillon, Cafe Esplanade, Rue Cler (both 7th Arr), Brasserie Lipp, Les Deux Maggots, Cafe Flor (All St. Germain Area), Best Pita in Town (Marais area). Places to visit: Louvre, Centre Pompidou, Musee d'Orsay.
Buy DK book on Paris, Rome, and London. Lots of great tips and info!!! Enjoy
