Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower
The global icon of France attracts more than 7 million visitors each year, making it the most visited paid monument in the world. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the monument was originally meant be replaced within a decade; but after Marconi invented the radio in 1901, the structure (then the tallest in the world) became a permanent structure due to the ease of long distance transmissions.
Today, the Eiffel Tower stands proud as France’s most decorated monument. Being the highest open observation deck in Paris, the top offers splendid views of the other incredible Parisian sights including Champ Elysees, Notre Dame, Montmartre and the Seine River. Strong winds, splending views and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; this mesmerizing structure is a must visit for tourists, locals and even the aliens.
Skip the Line: Catacombs with Audio Guide
Below the hustle and bustle of the cultural city of Paris lies an underground world which started taking shape in 1774. The Catacombs de Paris are underground ossuaries that hold the remains of more than six million people. Created to eliminate the city’s overflowing cemeteries, walk through the ‘Gate of Hell’ and see the subterranean cemetery that took 12 years to be filled by bones and skulls. The Paris Catacombs attract nearly 300,000 visitors each year and crowds are well regulated leading to a shortage of tickets.

So step in and explore over 2,000 years of Parisian history and learn about these mysterious catacombs from your audio guide which comes with your ticket at no surcharge.
