Subject: Avoiding lines in Rome - ETRome Tours

I recall that there recently has been some discussion here about Rome and the Vatican museums. So I thought I would pass on this tip.

A reader to the Los Angeles Times travel section recommended a tour company as a way to avoid lines at popular tourist sites in Rome. The tours seem reasonably priced for the convenience offered. For example, a three hour tour of the Vatican Museums and Basilica including an audio headset is 28 euros and you avoid the queue (which can be an hour or longer). It does not appear though that the tour price includes the museum admission fee. See
