We've been aptly planning for our Mediterranean cruise in the coming weeks, including excursions at each of the ports. Recently, we got an exciting letter from Carnival Cruise stating that during our stop over in Rome, that they'll be participating in World Tourism Day. Woo Hoo!! Why are we so excited?? Well, apparently many of the venues and sites we would normally pay will be offering FREE admission. So tours of the Vatican, the National Museum, among other sites will be available and accessible to all. Logistically this can be a nightmare if you don't like long lines, but financially it's a win-win. If by chance these lines are too long, we're sure we'll find other options of lesser known sites we hadn't visited before. Again, another win-win for new explorations. As you go about your day on Tuesday, September 27, look for activities and tourism sites in your city that may be offering free admission. This will be an exciting day to all, for those living both domestic stateside and international.
Check out what your city or town maybe doing for World Tourism Day, and share in the comments.
