Subject: Re: Rome, Naples, Venice, Paris and Salzburg
Hi Rhonda,

You might consider a convent in Rome and Venice. There are a few links in our Travelzine links page:

We have stayed in youth hostels when we traveled with our children in Switzerland and Germany. In other places we stayed in small hotels or B&B's.

As for Naples, you might want to consider staying in Sorrento rather than Naples itself. We spent 5 nights in Naples a year or so ago and it is a zoo! You can take a commuter train from Sorrento to Pompei and Herculaneum.

Look in the archive of TheTravelzine - go to and search the mirror archives. You will find extensive discussions of Rome, Venice and Paris (even Paris with kids!)
