Ok, I will be traveling to Rome, staying three nights, then Prague, spending four nights. I Rome I would like to say near the major sites I want to see, namely the vatican and ruins, in a nice hotel, but one that is a good value for the money. There will be four of us.
Then on to Prague. I want to stay in or very close to Old Town. I know that is the most expensive area, but we are visiting my son who is studying abroad and he is in old town, so we thought as close as possible. Same criteria. Nice, but decent value.
