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.
Moulin Rouge: It's not much like the movie, that's for sure. Between the tourist buses parked several deep out front, to being herded in like bovines and finally treated to what passed for family fun in 1986, there ain't much authentic about Moulin Rougue. All of this for the modest sum of €215 (if you opt for an all-inclusive deal)! Better to just snap a pic of yourself in front of the sign and enjoy the incredible people watching in the area.
