Lines at top Italian museums are bad enough to ruin any vacation and sour your image of Italy! Thankfully, there’s a way around them.
Italian tour guides are not just passionate art or architecture enthusiasts, well-versed locals, or even teachers with a side gig. Becoming an Italian tour guide is a pursuit that requires years of specific education and an extensive licensing exam.
If you only have ten days, or one work week with the weekends on each side, you can take in the greatest hits, Italy’s famous art cites: Florence, Rome, and Venice. And, with proper planning, you can do it in a leisurely fashion and even take in a bit of the countryside.
