One great way to truly experience life in a European city is to rent an apartment. They’re usually less expensive and larger than a hotel room. Many come with a washer/dryer combination that allows you to pack less. There are many apartments for rent on the Internet. We love out apartment on this trip. It is from www.vacationinparis.com and is right off of the wonderful market street of rue Montorgueil.
Here are five photos from our recent trip to Rome (and one bonus photo). The new edition of Eating & Drinking in Italy will be released this spring.

On out recent trip to Paris, we wanted to add a restaurant in the 20th arrondissement near the famous Père-Lachaise cemetery. We were lucky to find Bistrot Blanc Bec. Here's our entry in the new 8th edition of "Eating & Drinking in Paris" which will be released this summer:
Friendly bistro with a beautiful mosaic floor in a former bakery.Highlights include bavette (flank steak) and the rich ganache chocolat (chocolate cake). Good selection of wines by the glass and a decent Côtes du Rhône house wine. Nice choice for lunch while visiting the nearby Père-Lachaise cemetery (the eternal home of Chopin, Proust, and Jim Morrison). Info: 20th/Métro Ménilmontant. 15 rue des Panoyaux (off of blvd. de Ménilmontant). Tel. 01/18.104.22.168. Closed Sun. and Mon. facebook.com/bistrotblancbec. Moderate.
We're trying to decide where to go next to update our books. Today we'll look at Barcelona.
Barcelona is a city filled with well-preserved medieval buildings, modern architecture and the famous cathedral and other fabulous structures by Gaudí. It’s home to a celebrated Picasso museum, the wonderful Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), and La Rambla (where all of Barcelona seems to stroll each evening).
Here are the top sights in photos.
Our new edition of Open Road's Best of the French Riviera and Provence is now shipping (just in time for the holidays).
Newsday (one of the 10th largest newspapers in the US) recently reviewed our Italy book.
"Eating & Drinking in Italy" by Andy Herbach COST $9.95 paperback; $4.99 Kindle, Nook and Apple editions; available at eatndrink.com, amazon.com, bn.com and iTunes WHAT IT IS This most recent entry in the "Eating & Drinking" series is a handy guide for finding restaurants in Italy and translating menus.
If you're all set for a delicious meal in Florence but have no idea what items like daterri di mare (mussels) or figato di vitello (calf's liver) are, Herbach's menu translator will make ordering dinner easier. Like your steak well done? Ask for it ben cotto. If you prefer sitting where there's no smoking, request a table in the non fumatori section. The restaurant guide lists more than 100 eateries, and the Rome section also includes food markets, wine stores, coffeehouses and gelato shops.
We travel to Paris every year for Thanksgiving and meet friends from Wales. With the recent terror attacks in the City of Light, many have asked us if we still plan to visit Paris.
We understand that many will not go to Paris because they will be in a constant state of fear (and that would be a terrible way to travel). Here are five reasons why we are going to Paris this week.
Paris may never be the same, but we will not be abandoning it.
Andy Herbach is the author of the Eating & Drinking series of menu translators and restaurant guides, including Eating & Drinking in Italy , Eating & Drinking in Paris , and Eating & Drinking in Spain and Portugal . He is also the co-author of Wining & Dining in Paris and
