No choice but to travel during peak season? Do you tend to avoid a place because of crowds or just "grin and bear it"?

Jump to last reply

This reply seems to come up often on this board. Many seasoned travelers steer others away from an area/place since one is traveling during peak. Hmmm....if this is the person's first and possibly only time ever to experience these unique yet heavy tourist areas such as Venice, Cinque Terre, Vatican City, Paris, etc. to name a few...do we tell them not to go as to avoid the crowds? I'm curious.
