Want to sleep in a dictator's bed? Swim in a former tyrant's mosaic-lined swimming pool?

Romania's cash-strapped government is lining up a luxury package for tourists with a taste for the unusual: a stay at palaces and villas belonging to the late Communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu.A night at one of Ceausescu's homes will probably cost $3,000 to $4,000, said Mihai Nica, a government official.

"Guests will get a really special reception," he said Monday. "They will be able to relax and at the same time think this belonged to Ceausescu."

The tours, which will include hunting, will probably start next spring. Ceausescu and his wife were executed during an anti-Communist revolt in 1989.
