Not So Fast...

Don't you hate it when you're doing a little renovation and you have to stop because you find 2,000-year-old Roman ruins in the cellar? That's what happened to the folks converting the 12th-century Hotel-Dieu in Marseille into a four-star hotel. Read all about it here.
Thanks to Laurence at ProvenceConfidential for the heads up on this great story and photo.
