Paris is one of Europe’s cities struggling with an increasing number of tourists. More and more tourists from around the world come to the French capital to see the Eiffel Tower, Mona Lisa and the Seine river. Waiting times for Paris main tourist attractions have increased to several hours. It has become so bad that Public officials are now actively advising tourists to plan ahead in order to avoid ‘battling crowds’. According to Telegraph.co.uk, Paris is at the brink of regulating the number of visitors the city can take. Tourism in Paris peaks in summer. Events like the final stage of the Tour de France or France’s national holiday, make Paris one of the busiest places on those days. French school vacations also last long.
