The Sagrada Familia is one of the world’s most famous churches and Gaudi’s masterpiece. Although the works are still in progress, visiting the Sagrada Familia is a must do when you are in Barcelona. Long waiting lines might scare you off but it is still worth waiting in line for. But skipping the line could save you a lot of time.
The Eiffel Tower is the monument that defines Paris. You can see it from everywhere in Paris but you can also see whole Paris from the top. With only four slow elevators and very long stairs taking you to the top, it is bound to have long waiting lines.
When visiting the capital of France you cannot miss out on visiting the Louvre Museum in Paris. But you will not be the only one with that idea, as many want to see the Mona Lisa and much more. But perhaps you can beat them by skipping the line at the Louvre Museum.

In Rome you can buy the Roma Pass at a steep price of 36€ wondering if is worth your money.
When thinking about Rome, Italy you automatically think about ancient Rome. The Colosseum is the most famous and most visited attraction that you can go to in Rome and therefor the waiting lines could be enormous. More then 5 million people visit the Colosseum every year, most during spring and summer. You can spend most of your day waiting before you can visit the Colosseum, often in the blazing sun or even worse the rain. But why wait in line when you can skip the line in three easy ways.
Take the underground and third ring tour at the Colosseum, I cannot stress this enough! Not only are you able to skip the long waiting lines and do you get a guide during the whole experience, but you get the chance to visit the areas which are not open to the general public. Given the chance to stand where the gladiators once stood before they went into battle and perhaps face a certain death, is one you should take. You get a higher point of view from both the inside of the Colosseum but also the surrounding areas including the Forum Novarum.
Visiting the Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Italy is always free. But often there are long waiting lines to visit the Saint Mark’s Basilica which queue up to 45 minutes. The long waiting lines can be skipped by making an online reservation beforehand.
