Although every traveler has their own bucket list, some attractions are so iconic that they’re virtually guaranteed to be on yours. 

Recently, the Visited Travel App ranked what they consider to be the 10 modern Wonders of the World. Some may seem obvious, while others may surprise you. Regardless, we highly recommend purchasing either travel health insurance or travel insurance prior to visiting any of them. You want your dream trip to be memorable for all of the right reasons, not because you lost a bunch of money due to something unexpected. Travel insurance can protect you from that. You even have the option to purchase cancel for any reason insurance for ultimate flexibility in planning your trip. 

The World’s 10 Most Famous Attractions

10. The Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco

This 1.7-mile span is the most photographed bridge in the world, and is accessible by car, bicycle, or foot. Nearly 90,000 people cross the Golden Gate Bridge every day, so you’ll want to arrive outside of rush hour to get the most from your visit.

9. Leaning Tower of Pisa – Italy

We’ve all seen the Instagram photos of tourists “pushing” against the Leaning Tower of Pisa. But regardless of your reason for visiting, you’re sure to be just as fascinated by this 650-year-old tower that’s just a bit off kilter. 

8. Palace of Versailles – Paris

The majestic grounds and ornate apartments of the Palace of Versailles make it one of the most magnificent palaces in the world, and an obvious tourist magnet. The Hameau del Reine-Marie Antoinette’s village also makes for an idyllic spot for visitors.

7. Big Ben – London

Completed in 1859, this 316-foot clock tower has been overlooking London for more than 160 years. It has become such a cultural icon it’s often featured in advertising materials due to being the most recognizable component of the London skyline.

6. St. Peter’s Basilica – Vatican City

When you have the opportunity to see a structure designed in part by Michaelangelo himself, you’re best off making time in your itinerary to see it. Constructed from 1506-1626, the basilica can accommodate a congregation of more than 60,000 parishioners.

5. The Empire State Building – Manhattan

Once the tallest building in the world, the Empire State Building was constructed in just 11 months in 1931. The 86th floor observation deck remains a hotspot for tourists, as it offers some of the most incredible views of Manhattan.

4. La Sagrada Familia – Barcelona

The architecture of this basilica is simply jaw-dropping and has been one of the most recognizable structures in Barcelona for over 140 years. It might be a bit pricey, but it’s well worth booking a guided tour of La Sagrada Familia to get the most out of your visit.

3. Venice – Italy

Yes, this entire city is considered an iconic attraction. And why wouldn’t it be? With its myriad canals, incredible plazas, and unmatched vibe, is it any wonder that it’s one of the planet’s epicenters for romance? If you’re visiting Italy, Venice simply has to be on your list.

2. The Colosseum – Rome

The Roman Colosseum has been astounding visitors for nearly 2,000 years. Once famous for the games it hosted, the Colosseum today is renowned as the inspiration for nearly every modern sports stadium in the world. Whether you choose to fight the crowds and go inside or simply tour the exterior, it’s a must-visit.

1. The Eiffel Tower – Paris

The Eiffel Tower isn’t just the most recognizable structure in France or even Europe, it’s perhaps the most recognizable structure in the world. However, it draws massive crowds, so you’ll want to book tickets for your visit well ahead of time.

What do you think of this list? Are there any attractions they missed? Are some they included not worthy of being in the top 10? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
