"Hyped" Eiffel Tower and Stonehenge's "bunch of rocks": 10 popular attractions that failed to impress tourists

10 popular attractions that failed to impress tourists

The tourist spots that travelers hear about are not always as interesting as they are said to be. Sometimes there are too many people, which makes it impossible to fully enjoy the area, and sometimes an art object is way too "hyped" and does not leave a sufficient impression upon arrival.

However, the tastes of some people may simply not coincide with the tastes of others, so first of all, you should visit popular cultural monuments yourself and draw your own conclusions. The Daily Mail has collected several of them.

Mona Lisa painting - Paris, France

The Louvre, a cultural treasure trove, houses the mysterious Mona Lisa painted by the legendary Leonardo da Vinci. The painting fascinates tourists, but upon arrival they are disappointed because it is often crowded and they have to stand in kilometer-long lines. Because of this, the Louvre staff may soon even hide the painting in an underground room so as not to upset visitors.
