Hi from Canada ,, help please

Wondering for our May beginning of June tour of Italy...so for Rome ..Paris...are there any tours that we should take to get through the main tourist sights ...or can we do them ourselves ...looking at the comments for the Palace of Versailles doing that on your own sounds like a nightmare and a tour would be best ..they are expensive but would pay if it is really worth it ...any other sight that your recommend tours..Thank you

You can easily get around Rome and look at the sights by yourself. Tours are not a good idea in Rome, as so many of the sights are in pedestrian areas. On our first trip to Rome, we made the mistake of taking a half-day tour, and we spent more time walking than on the coach.

You would do best to get hold of a guide book and plan your own walking tour.

Thank you ...that’s great about Rome just looking at tours..so I’ll stop looking ..we would rather wonder around on our own and at our own speed ...just don’t want to get there and see those long long waiting lines like at the Palace of Versailles even when you have pre bought your tickets .....seems like the most line ups for the major sights are in Paris ...wish us luck

The Vatican Museums always have a long line for tickets, as does the Colosseum. If you want to see the Galleria Borghese, you must book in advance because of the limited number of admissions.
