We are planning to travel to Rome from the US March 17th (arriving the 18th) and leaving the 24th.
We're concerned that the resignation of the Pope and the subsequent Papal Conclave will result in a huge increase in the number of visitors to Rome during the month of March.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? It's obviously different as there is no deceased pope to mourn, but we're flying stand-by, so we're still concerned about an increase in travelers during that time.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
