The Eiffel Tower is one of the most instantly recognisable structures in the world. Built in 1889, it is now an icon of France as well as being the most popular paid monument to visit in the world attracting millions of visitors each year.

2. The Colosseum, Italy

If the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of France, then the Colosseum is the symbol of Italy. This huge amphitheatre in the centre of Rome is the biggest ever built by the Romans. It dates back nearly 2,000 years and was used for gruesome spectacles involving gladiator fights and executions, and it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.

3. The Tower of London, UK

There are too many major tourist attractions to mention in London, but the Tower of London is certainly up there with the best. The castle dates back to the Norman invasion and is still in good condition. A tour with a Beefeater is a must, and you will also get to enjoy the Ravens, the White Tower and the famous Crown Jewels.

4. The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is famous around the world. It dates back to the 12th century and began leaning a few years after it was built. It is currently leaning at 3.99 degrees.

5. The Parthenon, Greece

The Parthenon is a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Construction on the Parthenon in Athens began in 447 BC. Its sculptures are famed around the world for being some of the best examples of their kind, and although it is currently being restored due to its poor state, it still remains an incredible sight.
