One hapless tourist took pictures of the explanatory panels, unable to stand still and actually read them, before being swept up and moved along, up to the next masterpiece hidden from proper view.This was a weekday in early autumn, when travelers in most destinations expect high tourist season to finally give way to a semblance of civility.It captivated, in a few claustrophobic moments, the challenges top tourist destinations now face across Europe – be it Amsterdam, Venice, Rome or Belgium's Bruges.There is another way, and you don't even have to give up a visit to a place like Rome.The art is as unbeatable as at the Vatican.Here's how that philosophy plays out on a visit to Rome, even if it might sound sacrilegious to some:r Skip a visit to the Colosseum. r Rome is so saturated with the greatest art that the list goes on forever.The challenge for the 21st century is almost the inverse: Instead of the traveler touching something, the challenge is how to be touched by something, to find something inspiring in this overwhelming world of mass tourism.With a bit of imagination, that can be done even within Rome.
