We live in Southern California USA, this will be our first trip to Europe. This is a college graduation gift to my son. Prior to Paris we will be on a tour of the UK and Ireland so we are looking forward to a beautiful Paris apartment to rest ourselves and refresh after all the touring! Then we are on to Rome for a week and are looking for a centrally located apartment close to many wonderful sites. We are looking forward to being in fully furnished apartments to experience each city.
