Rome, Florence & Venice My family and I want to visit Rome in June of this year and I would appreciate some advice on how to plan the trip. Should we seek to become part of a tour group and if so, how do we find the best one. Thanks!

I have to agree with wat is posted and i found out that having a tour guide was great and I still had time to visit places in Rome, Venice, and Florence and I would go back in a heart beat . I would love to one day live their and stay their and enjoy the culture and explore where my family came from.

Personally, I'm all about traveling countries solo. However, there are many people who Don't feel the same way as I do. Tours can be very beneficial if you like to get around efficiently. Tour guides know the history behind the sights so There's no reason to run around looking for a plaque or wondering what that large, leaning tower is. Also, many planned tours offer some personal time either during or after the tours to enjoy the city alone. And sometimes, you can even get a meal out of it.
Remember, you can find tour groups based around anything. So really think about what you're looking for. Whether it's how much you want to spend, how long you want to stay, what you want to do, There's literally a tour group that will accommodate it. Our partner site, GORPtravel.com, offers some really good group tours all over the world. Check out their offerings at: http://gorptravel.away.com/adventure-destinations.html.
