June is here and with it is the kick-off to the 2010 summer travel season., the leading resource for researching and booking more than 5,500 trip activities and experiences at the best prices, has tallied the list of the top 10 most popular destinations for June 2010, ranked by actual bookings made by Viator customers. To help inspire would-be travelers’ summer trip plans, the hottest themes and attractions for each destination have made it to the top 10 as well.

“Viator customers do an excellent job of researching and booking activities that will enhance their trips, and really, who would argue with Rome ranking as their favorite destination, especially this time of year,” said Barrie Seidenberg, CEO and president of Viator. “Value in every sense of the word is vital to our customers. So it makes perfect sense that skip-the-line and private tours as well as ‘destination-in-one-day’ sightseeing tours that help travelers see all major sites in a single day are flying off the shelves.”
