How to Beat the Crowds in Italy

Avoiding the Crowds Needs to be Part of an Italy Itinerary

Let's face it, traveling to places like Rome, Florence and Venice, one can expect big crowds.   On our small group tours to Italy we have seen lines hours long into places like the Colosseum and the Basilica in Venice.   The tourist push to see sites like David in the Accademia in Florence or the Uffizi Gallery can be unbelievable.  Even on The Traveling Professor's Tours to Italy much of our itinerary planning is done with crowd avoidance in mind.  In today's blog post I will give advice on how to beat the crowds in places like Rome, Florence, and Venice.   Hopefully, with these tips in mind a tour to Italy will be more enjoyable for you.

Why the Latin Quarter is the Best Place to Stay in Paris

Location, Location, Location

small group tours to parisWhenever The Traveling Professor brings tours to Paris or whenever I travel solo to Paris, I always stay in an area on the Left Bank called the Latin Quarter.  It is called the Latin Quarter because it is where schools like the Sorbonne are located.  In the good old days, students spoke Latin. Hence, the Latin Quarter.   In today's blog I will explain why the Latin Quarter is the best place to stay on a tour to Paris.
