New Google Feature Lets You Avoid the Crowds When Siteseeing

By  | 

I’m really excited about this recent discovery! When planning a trip it’s often wise to do a little research on the peak times at popular attractions like the Tower of London or the Louvre so you can avoid the crowds. This information is often provided in guide books, like Rick Steves’ or Let’s Go.

And as of this summer, it’s now available for many places with a Google search! It won’t tell you wait times but it will give you a sense of when the most people are visiting the exhibit.

Right now its available for many attractions and businesses, but not all. You can see traffic for the Colosseum in Rome for instance, but not the Vatican Museum.
