The Colosseum, in Rome (Italy)

This ancient stadium of Roman gladiators, which can accommodate 50,000 people, is a must-see during your stay in Rome. To explore ancient Rome, prefer a walking tour of the city, over a day. You can also take the opportunity to visit the hidden parts of the Colosseum, through special tours.

The Louvre Museum, in Paris (France)

We no longer present the Louvre Museum, which notably houses Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. This museum is considered the largest art museum in the world, including an invaluable collection of artifacts spanning centuries of art across continents. Obviously, the price of success, the queues are long and make access less easy than in other cultural places. Fortunately, the museum had the good idea to offer reservations, and more importantly, arrival slots to avoid the crowds and create a continuous and regular flow of visitors. Other novelties, such as a treasure hunt, or night visits, could enhance a visit to this unique place.

The Vatican Museum, in the Vatican (Italy)

Already a 2nd place in this list for Italy, and for Rome, even if the Vatican is a city apart within the Italian capital. Clearly, skip-the-line is “mandatory” if you want to avoid excessive waiting, for a place that is certainly sublime, but ultimately relatively short to visit.

The originality also lies in the possibility of attending the weekly papal audience, attended by more than a billion faithful around the world.

The Statue of Liberty, in New York (United States)

Small “cocorico” for this 4th place, the Statue of Liberty having been offered by France to the United States. This has become the universal symbol of democracy and freedom. To visit this place outside of land-based New York, you’ll need to book a small-group guided tour that takes travelers to the Statue and Ellis Island. A one-hour boat cruise can also be a nice idea, to see the Statue anchored in its New York environment of skyscrapers and parks.

The Eiffel Tower, in Paris (France)

This might surprise you, but this ranking sorts places by rating, not by number of visitors. Thus, the Iron Lady is known to travelers all over the world to see this century-old icon with their own eyes. You can also imagine a night visit, because in the City of Lights, it is daylight at all hours! Meet on the 2nd floor to discover the magnificent panorama of our French pride!

La Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona (Spain)

Gaudi traveled through Spain, and in particular Barcelona, ​​with works as beautiful as they were great. La Sagrada Familia, an unfinished Roman Catholic basilica, is for many Gaudi’s finest work. Begun in 1882, the construction of this basilica is still not finished! Among the most visited places in the Catalan capital, we advise you to book your visit, and also to enjoy the exterior view, already rich in lessons and emotions!

The French Quarter, in New Orleans (United States)

Once again “cocorico” for this state of America, unique and rich in the hearts of the French. A visit to the French Quarter of New Orleans is mandatory, first for its cultural richness, then for its lively nightlife and legendary concerts, including Jazz and Blues. A real country within the country.

Great Wall of China, (China)

The Willis Tower, in Chicago (United States)

Nice representation of the United States in this ranking with a 3rd point. If you are going to Chicago, you cannot escape visiting the highest peak in the West. Ideally, consider a dinner at the Skydeck on the 103rd floor, and enjoy typical pizza from this city. You can complete this visit with the Lincoln Park Zoo in particular.

Saint Mark’s Square, Venice (Italy)

Italy equalizes with the United States, being represented for a third time. Saint Mark’s Square is the largest square in Venice, named “Salon de l’Europe” by Napoleon. First, take a self-guided walking tour to take your time and soak up the atmosphere. Then, head to the Ducal Palace and Saint Mark’s Basilica, loaded with visitors certainly, but it’s worth the detour!
