Subject: Re: July trip to Italy and perhaps France - 3 adults
Hi Fred & Ziners, We traveled to Rome and Florence in July 2001 and although very crowded and hot it was enjoyable. My advice because of the crowds is to plan and book your tours, museums, trains etc. before leaving the USA. Getting up early to sightsee and tour gives you a jump on the crowds. One example is by arriving at the Vatican 8:30 AM, my family and I were the only four people viewing the Pieta`. The same is true for museums in Florence. If Paris is also on your itinerary buy a Paris Museum Pass and again it negates the lines. Hopefully this helps and enjoy your trip. Vince, outside of Philadelphia
