We’ve all been there.
You’ve gone to the Eiffel Tower on your first day in Paris. Now you’re three hours deep in queues and your schedule for the rest of the weekend has been thrown off.

But there are plenty of landmarks that are worth the wait. Business Insider asked travel experts from the likes of Lonely Planet, Rare Escapes, and KAYAK for their favourite European landmarks that are actually worth visiting.
