I just returned from an 8 day trip to Europe visiting Paris and Rome. I went with my sister, and we booked the trip through Gate1 Travel. When we booked the trip, we knew it was a really great deal, but only when we got there did we realize how truly amazing of a deal it really was. We flew out of Chicago, and at the time when all was said and done we each paid about $1,000 which included flights and hotels. We also flew from Paris to Rome and that was included. Considering how expensive hotels are in Europe, this was such a deal! Both hotels were slightly off the beaten path, but definitely within city limits and it was easy to get around. The hotels were also clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. In Paris we stayed at the TimHotel, and in Rome we stayed at the Donatello hotel. Both hotels included breakfast each morning. I would absolutely book any other trip in the word with Gate1!
