Dh is darling husband.


Sistine chapel was very crowded, & despite being asked to stay silent so many people were yapping loudly. Very disrespectful.

+1 Charles Bridge for sure. I lost my wife there for about 30 minutes, she zigged, I zagged while looking at the different vendors. Fortunately we thought ahead and said to meet at the east tower if we became separated.

Holy Week, (Santa Semana), in Sevilla, Spain, if you get caught up in the processions heading toward the Cathedral from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday it can be insane.

So...in essences it took you from palm Sunday to get to the cathedral to celebrate Easter? That is one looooonnng procession

Mine was Sturgis back in 1990's. The port-a-pots were a disgrace. Took an hour to wait and the guys had no problem just going where they pleased. But sardine crowded is how I recall it. And smelled like it too!

Times Square is certainly the one that comes to mind, though I live in NYC. It's so crowded I avoid it unless I have to go there.

In terms of going places as a tourist, the area around the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia was pretty crowded.

Vatican / Sistine Chapel.

Worst experience of my life as a tourist.

Uffizi Gallery in Florence was not crowded inside, hardly at all---they restrict the number of tourists in there at one time, unlike the hated Vatican.

Trevi Fountain was jammed-packed, but it didn't diminish our enjoyment much. Still could see everything.

Hmmm...... When we went to the Sistene Chapel, I was pushing a wheelchair ( the man should have NEVER gone to Italy with us, another story!) and they ushered me in a back way with an elevator and I got to see hallways that are not on the tour . Also, we got there early in between tours so we were there when it was quiet. I think God rewarded me for pushing that chair around as when the tour came in, it was noisy!

Any Disney park, I don't ever want to go again, been to CAL and FL . That was enough. Also, waiting to go up into the crown of the Statue of Liberty ( can't do that anymore I understand). We don't have any grandchildren ( yet!) and I don't want to do any of those again. I like big cities but that waiting in line and being in a sea of humanity is not that appealing anymore.

Before COVID, I had to go monthly to a work dinner event around 50th and 7th, after which I walked to Penn NY about 8 p.m. to catch my train. Walking through TS always felt like being in a bad dream with the flashing lights endless tourists posing for pictures with the cartoon characters wannabe rappers trying to sell their CDs show ticket pushers. And M&Ms. LOL.
