With its historic landmarks and world-famous museums, it's easy to see why Paris is one of Europe’s most popular cities. But with over 35 million visitors each year, crowds are inevitable. Here’s how to avoid long lines at Paris’ top attractions.

Skip the Line at Top Paris Landmarks 
Iconic sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral are on the top of most itineraries, so pre-booking a skip-the-line tour could save you from spending hours waiting in line. Art lovers wanting to see the Mona Lisa and other masterpieces can benefit from skip-the-line entry to the Louvre or the Musée d'Orsay, while history buffs can dodge the queues for the Paris Catacombs.

Skip the Line at Versailles
The lavish Palace of Versailles is just 30 minutes from Paris, but with over 9 million annual visitors, avoiding the crowds is impossible. Follow in the footsteps of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette by booking a private or small-group tour with skip-the-line access, enjoying a bike tour of the château gardens, or exploring independently with an audio guide.

Combo Skip-the-Line Tours
To make the most of your time in the city, combine a skip-the-line visit to the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre with popular activities such as a romantic cruise down the Seine River, a walking tour of Ile de la Cite, wine tasting at a Parisian bar, or an art tour of Montmartre.
