If you plan to tour the Eternal City, you want to find out what you need to do to have a more enjoyable travel experience.  Rome is a gorgeous city, one of the most adoring cities to visit.  Being in Rome feels like being in a huge museum.  The streets, the churches, and the buildings all breathe history.  While there is everything reason to visit Rome, sometimes the city is crowded.  To get the most of your trip to Rome, you can use these three tips:

  1. Skip the Lines at the Attractions

When you have two or three days to tour Rome, and you want to explore as much as you can, it can be a little tricky because much of the time may be spent standing in line at the entrances.  You can skip the lines at attractions like the Vatican museums and Colosseum.  It doesn’t make sense to spend 4 hours queuing at the Vatican museums only to have two minutes to see the well-known ceiling painting by Michelangelo at the Sistine Chapel.  There are skip-the-line tours that DMC Travel Tailor can arrange for you so you can save time.

  1. Outsmart The Crowds

You can visit places like the Vatican late in the afternoon when most people have already toured the place.  You will find huge crowds in the morning, so consider going to other places like Trastevere and come back around 6 PM and you will get inside St. Peter’s Basilica in a few minutes.  If you are visiting the Pantheon, do it half an hour prior to closing time.  The attraction is pretty crowded, but some minutes before closing it is less crowded.

  1. Tour the Little Know Parts of Rome

If you want to avoid the crowds when visiting Rome, it’s advisable that you head in the opposite direction than where most people are going.  There are must-see places, but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t other beautiful and exciting attractions to see in Rome.

These tips will help enhance your experience when touring Rome.  To plan your trip to Rome and other top destinations, you can contact Stefany at DMC Travel Tailor at info@dmctraveltailor.com.
