Tourists visiting Italy nowadays are rather like people attending one of those big society events, at which an ultra VIP, say Paris Hilton (if you're young and American), or Prince Charles (if you're old and British) is the guest of honour. What happens? Everyone pushes and gets pushed in the attempt to glimpse the star attraction. And then the party is over. Tourists visiting Italy head for the big-time cities-Venice, Florence and Rome-where they zero in on the big-time museums and churches. These are the star attractions, on everyone's ‘must do' list. The tourists form endless lines waiting to get in, and once inside, they push and get pushed, struggling to see the masterpieces that everyone else ‘has seen.' Then, as far as they're concerned, they've ‘done' Italy.
