The top ten tourist traps to avoid in France
Here's the 10 tourist traps you should avoid on your next trip in France. They're the places that are so expensive, so cheesy or so crowded it feels like all of the 84 million tourists who visit the country each year are there at the same time. You may not agree with the entries on this list, so let us know what places would make your top ten.
Eiffel Tour: Rejecting this eternal symbol of Paris may sound like sacrilege, but climbing to its top is something to avoid. Queuing for hours or booking months in advance are the only two options to secure a place on one of the elevators that will take you skyward. Instead you should spend €15 euros on a ride to the top of the equally impressive Tour Montparnasse or the Arc de Triomphe.
