Dec 10, 2012 —  With its incredible history and vast size, Europe is chockfull of enough landmarks to fill a lifetime of travel. Who knows how many flash cards have been filled with the same shot of The Eiffel Tower in Paris? Or of grown men playing gladiators inside Rome’s Coliseum? Or of pesky kids trying to get a guard to crack a smile in front of Buckingham Palace in London?

Are European landmarks heavily touristed destinations? Of course they are. But this is Europe! It’s where you can find stunning buildings that were built before the bible was written and the former abodes of kings! It’s home to the castle that so impressed Walt Disney, he modeled his own theme park’s castle after it. And it’s where feats of architectural engineering have withstood centuries of wear and still confound and amaze us.

You can't avoid the crowds at these classic European landmarks, but the lines will be worth it as these iconic sights are sure to leave their mark on you.
