Especially in peak season, the lines at the Palace of Versailles can be hard to believe. Skip them—without waking up at the crack of dawn—on this eminently civilized guided train trip from Paris. Your guide will show you the most magnificent of the 2,000 rooms, including the Hall of Mirrors, the King’s State Apartments, and the King’s Private Apartments, then introduce you to the magical 2,000-acre (800-hectare) gardens.

See one of Paris's spookiest attractions with this skip-the-line tour of the "world's largest grave." You'll get to forego the oftentimes long lines in front of the attraction and head straight inside. Be prepared to see thousands of bones and skulls, remains from graves that were overflowing and consequentially excavated in the 17th century and hear amusing antidotes from your expert guide.
