Venere.com is the best (starter, at least) site for hotels in Italy. For Paris, you might start with webscapades.com

Presumably you mean a EurailPass. Highly unlikely that it would be a good bargain for you. Overrated and overpriced. Train travel in Italy is intrinsically a good value. Just buy the ordinary ("point-to-point") tickets you need. As noted above, see www.whichbudget.com for flights between Paris and Italy - - such as easyjet.com or myair.com - - cheaper than the train and do in two hours what takes 14 on the train.

Well actually your best site for finding hotels is right here on this forum. For instance if you post a question about a hotel in Venice for such and such a date and include your budget you will get TONS of goos advice

And why do you want a "euro pass"? Point to point train tickets are inexpensive and budget intra-Europe airlines are often even cheaper.

I don't believe that is enough train travel to warrant a rail pass, you can simply purchase point-to-point tickets at the train stations.

Since you say now only France and Italy, I think Janis' itinerary above is about as perfect as you can get.

www.lacalcina.com Pensione La Calcina in Venice is absolutely lovely.

Paris www.dacia-paris-hotel.com for Dacia Luxembourg in the Latin Quarter is nice and in an excellent central location on St Mich.

I might skip Florence and add a day or two to Rome.
