Hilarious One-Star Reviews of Iconic European Attractions
Europe may be the birthplace of Western civilization, but some Yelp reviewers are thoroughly unimpressed with its historic attractions — and they’re not afraid to share their one-star reviews.
From calling the Louvre "a mall with no exits" to complaining about the Roman Colosseum being "in ruins," we've rounded up the funniest bad reviews of European attractions.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, right?
Versailles Palace - France
"Versailles----more like Ver-Sucks" - Christin R.
Do we agree with the negative sentiment about this imposing royal residence and its stunning grounds? Not at all.
Are we living for this so-bad-it's-good pun? You bet.
Blue Mosque - Istanbul
“The roof is somewhat blue but the entire mosque is lined with red carpet which made it feel like a red mosque. Oh well, I've ticked that box.” - Oby O.
The Blue Mosque, also known as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, attracts visitors because of its magnificent facade and interior blue tiles. But when you call something the Blue Mosque, you should also apparently have blue carpet, or you’re really just leading people on.
Canal Grande - Venice, Italy
“It was under water when I saw it.” - Qype User
Considering this is *checks notes* a canal, one would indeed expect it to be underwater.
(Still, we’ll cut this reviewer some slack, as they were maybe referring to Venice itself getting flooded?)
“The place was in *ruins*. Stadium seemed like it hadn't been used in years. So old none of the seats even remained, had to stand.” - Dominic D.
Well, yes, the Colosseum hasn’t been used in years. Specifically since around the fifth or sixth century. And since about two-thirds of the Colosseum has been destroyed over the centuries, it's safe to say it's in ruins.
In any case, we hereby petition for “The Place Was in Ruins” to be a T-shirt sold at the Colosseum gift shop. We’d definitely buy it.
Stonehenge - Wiltshire, England
“Far too expensive to look at some rocks.” - Qype User
One could describe this as an ancient world wonder from the Neolithic Age that, amazingly, features 22-ton rocks that were lifted and meticulously positioned without the help of any modern tools or machinery.
Alternatively, one could describe it as “some rocks.”
To each their own.
Cliffs of Moher - Ireland
“Ugh. So awful. The wind. The rain. Not to mention all the stairs. If I am going to pay 6 Euro to look at some rocks, I shouldn't have to get winded climbing so many stairs. The worst part is that the cliffs were not insane. Inconceivable! I expected insanity, and the dumb cliffs didn't deliver.” - Amanda J.
Another iconic attraction, another “some rocks” diss. In this case, the rocks in question stretch for five miles along Ireland’s gorgeous west coast, reaching more than 700 feet in height. In other words, they’re totally dumb.
Also, a word to the wise: Always bring a poncho to Ireland. Wind and rain are kind of what it’s known for.
Sistine Chapel - Vatican City
“Such a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaste of time. Pure hell on earth.” - Jason M.
Five centuries ago, Michelangelo spent four years of his life meticulously painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. According to Jason M., those four years amounted to a whole lot of nothing.
If only the artist had actually done something with his life.
Praca do Comercio - Lisbon, Portugal
“Concrete. Cobblestones. Tourists. Water. Hot. Bleak. Not a place I ever need to visit again.” - Dave B.
As with most attractions in Europe and around the world, this public square flanked by an equestrian statue and centuries-old buildings does indeed include cobblestones, tourists and, um...concrete.
Castelo de Sao Jorge - Lisbon, Portugal
“Just another old castle. Save your 9 euros unless you want to see the view from the top of the towers. There is a museum inside with pieces of broken pottery and other artifacts.” - Tom C.
The pottery inside this castle is from ancient times, so yes, it’s a little broken. For brand-new and fully intact pottery, we suggest Pottery Barn.
Eiffel Tower - Paris
“S***’s whack. Overrated. Would not recommend. The tower across the street is waaay cooler.” - Jacob W.
What’s whack is that the Eiffel Tower was constructed in two years, two months and five days, opening just in time for the 1889 World Fair, which marked the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.
Now, more than seven million people visit the Eiffel Tower each year, making it the most visited monument in the world.
S***’s whack indeed.
Pantheon Basilica di Santa Maria - Rome
“Don't waste your time. Free, but beyond packed. Just view the outside. Only like every other church.” - Samantha K.
Although the original Pantheon burned down around 80 AD, it was rebuilt between 118-125 AD. It was an ancient temple turned Catholic church in the seventh century. And inside, it features the largest unrefined dome in the world.
You know, like every other church.
Platform 9 ¾ - London
“First of all, no one even got into ‘wand battles’ at Platform 9 and 3/4. Second of all, this was at 8pm at night, and people have places to be. Let's get this line moving!” - Greg K.
Platform 9 ¾ is the fictional platform to board the train to Hogwarts in the Harry Potter books. We actually agree with Greg K.: If people aren’t having wand battles here, what even is the point of it being a tourist attraction?
Kopalnia Soli Wieliczka - Poland
“Everything is made of salt here...WE GET IT!” - Krista T.
This UNESCO World Heritage site is a former salt mine, so Krista T. is correct. There’s a lot of salt. Maybe she's trying to lower her sodium intake?
Palace of Holyroodhouse - Edinburgh, Scotland
“The palace also sells itself as being the place where the Queen stays when she visits Edinburgh, which is never. To be fair, her old mother was quite fond of it here before she deservedly became a coffin-dweller. I believe she particularly enjoyed sitting with her corn-ridden feet up on one of the priceless sofas, sinking bottles of gin and humiliating her servants while watching the racing on Channel 4.” - Gavin M.
Gavin M., what did the Queen Mother do to you?!
Anne Frank House - Amsterdam
“Without a doubt the WORST museum I have ever been to, especially considering the wait. I am a museum aficionado and this one contained three empty rooms with some ordinary 40s items in a glass box. There was almost no story except for the bare bones. The video segments over lapped with the stuff on the wall.” - Ads D.
Once the home of writer and Holocaust victim, Anne Frank, this museum in Amsterdam tells the story of her life. About 1.2 million people come to learn about her each year. It’s not fancy, but like, why would it be?
Oh, and FYI: Most museums tend to have things in glass boxes.
Louvre Museum - Paris
“Here's how to sum up our experience at the Louvre: We got stuck in a mall with no exit.” - Chelsea and Jenn C.
Ok, so it’s true that the crowds at the Louvre can feel mall-like, especially near famous exhibits and paintings like the “Mona Lisa” and “Liberty Leading the People.” But last we checked, it did not include a JC Penny, Claires, or food court with a Panda Express and Cinnabon.
As for the exit signs, maybe there was some confusion because they read sortie in French?
Berlin Television Tower
“A scam ! Overpriced, and you don't get to see the city [without] the hideous glare of dirty windows ! It's also hideous from the outside. Tear it down!” - Romain D.
The Berlin Television Tower is an awkwardly shaped structure that points into the air like Seattle's Space Needle. Visitors can dine at a revolving restaurant at the top and take in sweeping views of the city.
But all that matters little, it seems, when the cleaners don’t know the value of Windex.
Schloss Schonbrunn - Vienna
“Over advertised and overpriced tourist trap. Worth visiting perhaps during the low season. Pretzel on the market place in front of the castle was 3,90 eur while at the Naschmarkt you get the same stuff ~1eur. The entrance fee was 15.50 eur. Taking photos was not allowed. Overall it all felt like a con!” - Pasi H.
Sure, this hunting lodge turned summer home for the Habsburgs, who ruled for six centuries, is a historic marvel. And sure, it’s magnificent to look at.
But the pretzels are overpriced, and that’s what really matters.
Arc de Triomphe - Paris
“The stairs inside are absolutely dreadful, and that's coming from an athletic person. Not much to see inside, and the views are not worth it. All you will see is jammed pack streets of Paris.” - Laura Z.
The famous Arc that sits at the end of the Champs Elysees was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806. He never got to witness the end result as it took 30 years to finish the intricately carved pillars.
It’s a stunning attraction, but to be fair, Laura has a point. It’s best admired from the outside, where you’ll notice carved depictions of war scenes and victories.
Plus, who wants to climb a bunch of stairs after spending their day inhaling croissants?
Buckingham Palace - London
“Thou would do well to avoid the Old Palace Yard. As guests of honour, we were treated quite horribly.” - Guy F.
Buckingham Palace is the residence of the monarch of the United Kingdom. It was initially built for a Duke in 1703, then was purchased by King George III in 1761. Over the years, it’s undergone renovations and survived a World War II bomb strike.
Whether or not it can survive this scathing Yelp review remains to be seen.
Van Gogh Museum - Amsterdam
“No Starry Night here, if you want to see great Van Gogh paintings, don't go here…” - William H.
Poor Van Gogh. The guy completes more than 50 works, earns worldwide acclaim, has an entire museum in his home country devoted to him, and still all anyone wants to see is that one painting with the cool stars at night.
(“Starry Night” has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941, should you too only be interested in seeing that.)
Basilica de La Sagrada Familia - Barcelona, Spain
“Okay yeah it's one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen, but Gaudí is no doubt rolling in his grave at the fact that they charge to get in. Charging to get into a religious institution is anti-Catholic. I don't care how beautiful it is. Having a space for prayer should NEVER be for a cost.” - Emily A.
Actually, Gaudi is probably rolling in his grave at the thought that he’s not making a commission off his unfinished masterpiece.
(Also, to be clear, they don’t charge you to worship in the church; participating in mass at La Sagrada Familia is open to the public.)
Hagia Sophia - Istanbul
“There is nothing much to see inside and the place is falling apart. I get that is ancient but I have to ask where the entrance fee funds are going. It's obviously not to upkeep and maintenance.” - Camie T.
Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is a cathedral that was built during the Byzantine Empire in the sixth century. As in, 15 centuries ago.
So yeah, it’s no longer in pristine condition.
Galleria dell’Accademia - Florence, Italy
“INCREDIBLY RUDE STAFF AT THE SECURITY CHECK IN! The only thing worth seeing is Michaelangelo's David. Everything else in here was a waste of time.” - Shelong Y.
This art museum in Florence is best known for being the home of Michelangelo's David sculpture. This masterpiece stands more than 16-feet tall and was carved from a single block of marble. It took three years to complete and is absolutely incredible.
Pity the artists who must showcase their comparatively, apparently, "waste of time" works beside it.
Ponte Vecchio - Florence, Italy
“Don’t even go there, save yourself stressful time and just take a picture of it from a distance, its overcrowded and over rated, full of beggars and weird 'artist' such as white hippie dude playing didgeridoo???” - Simon K.
Ponte Vecchio is a bridge over the Arno River in Florence. It’s believed to have been originally built by the Romans in the Middle Ages, then rebuilt over the years. It had shops along the bridge back in the day, just as it does now.
But who cares about all that when you also have to listen to a hippie dude play a didgeridoo nearby?
Plaza Mayor - Madrid, Spain
“Overrated, didn't see any shops, just a street cart and what appeared to be a coffee shop. Square smells like pee. Watch your bags/purses, found my zipper opened after a Street show so be careful.” - Melissa D.
There are a lot of Plaza Mayors around the world, but the one in Madrid is significant because of its central location and Christmas markets. Disclaimer: It is not responsible for people peeing in its vicinity.
Belvedere Palace - Vienna
“The gardens have weeds everywhere and the bushes have not been trimmed. Though I loved it 5 years ago, the current management should be fired. I'll never return.” - Daved F.
Belvedere Palace in Vienna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as it holds artwork that’s over 800 years old. It includes paintings from Gustav Klimt, Monet and Van Gogh. Perhaps the management team is too busy preserving these classic paintings to worry about the weeds in the gardens.
Zaanse Schans - Zaandam, Netherlands
“I suppose that if you want to see some old school wind mills AND some old school tourist fleecing, this is your place.” - W W.
Zaanse Schans is a neighborhood in the Netherlands where you’ll find the historic windmills the country is famous for. Other than the mills, you can learn how to make wooden clogs and eat cheese, both of which understandably cost money.
Old school? Yes. A tourist fleecing? Yeah, no.
Amsterdam Cheese Museum
“Purchased a $30 cheese wheel and was told it would last ‘at least 3 months.’ Opened it up less than 2 months after the trip and it's thoroughly covered in mold. Misleading to travelers. Disappointed and would not return.” - Aaron S.
The Dutch are known for producing cheese. You know, Gouda, Edam, Leerdammer, all that good stuff. What we can’t understand is buying the best of this cheese at the world-famous Amsterdam Cheese Museum and waiting two full months to eat it!
If it were us, the cheese wouldn’t have even made it out the door.
Duomo di Milano - Italy
“This place felt dark and imposing. Not sure why I got this vibe, but it just was simply creepy.” - Susan W.
If the Duomo di Milan looks imposing, that’s probably because the gothic-style cathedral has been standing there for over 600 years and the outside is guarded by 135 gargoyles. You say "creepy," we say "totally awesome."
Leaning Tower of Pisa - Italy
“Yawn. I came here at sunset and just had the most boring time. I didn't climb the tower (you need a timed ticket beforehand). I took my touristy photos and had nothing else to do after. I barely had time to go into the basilica before they kicked me out in a very rude manner.” - Hemang S.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa was constructed in 1399. “Pisa” means “marshy land” in Greek, so it was was built on land that’s technically sinking, which is why it has a four-degree lean.
Taking goofy touristy photos is kind of the entire point of the thing.
British Museum - London
“I went to a friend's house once and he had a lot of stolen stuff. i felt quite awkward just looking at it. same feeling here.” - Emily M.
Actually, this reviewer has a very valid point. The British Museum is home to amazing artifacts from all over the world, from ancient Greek statues to Egyptian mummies. And a whole lot of it was definitely stolen from other countries.
(Obligatory shout-out to that iconic scene from “Black Panther.”)
Trevi Fountain - Rome
“The place was crawling with people and people were just bumping into each other. If you absolutely have to see it, walk over, throw your coin in and go have a beer around the corner.” - Carol D.
Visitors flock to the Trevi Fountain because of its architectural beauty. Legend has it that if you throw a coin over your shoulder and into the fountain, you’ll return to Rome one day. And a lot of people want to return to this ancient city.
Legends aside, hundreds of euros worth of coins are thrown into the fountain each day. That could buy you a lot of beer around the corner!
Neuschwanstein Castle - Schwangau, Germany
“Went last week and was THOROUGHLY unimpressed. Not only is this a fake castle (never lived in by any royalty, etc) it also was built fairly recently...If you're the kind of person that goes on Disney cruises and considers that a great vacation, then by all means, ignore the above. This place is designed with you in mind.” - Matt R.
This unimpressed reviewer is right on a couple counts. The storybook castle was built relatively recently, in the 19th century, and though it was constructed for King Ludwig II, he lost power before he was able to live in it. (In fact, only 14 rooms inside are finished.)
But while it has served as the inspiration for castles in fictional Disney movies, it’s hardly fake.
Also, we feel personally attacked by the comment about losers who enjoy Disney cruises...
Belem Tower - Lisbon, Portugal
“Boring! We waited 50 minutes to get in and it was boring as hell. Not worth the wait. If you find walking into empty rooms fun, you will enjoy this. We did not. There was nothing interesting about this place.” - Brian B.
Belem Tower was built to defend the city, then it became a lighthouse, and now it’s a tourist attraction. Other than the history, it’s pretty to look at.
Plus, it has a cool rhinoceros gargoyle on the tower. It doesn’t get more interesting than that!
“This park was such a disappointment, it doesn't compare to Anaheim Disney. It's dirty, lacking any sort of Disney ‘magic’, the staff moves slower than snails, I don't think a single staff member smiled or said hello.” - Pam B.
Disneyland Paris is relatively new. It opened in 1992, complete with two parks and seven resorts, castle included. Perhaps staff said “bonjour” to this Yelp reviewer upon entering the park, which sounds phonetically different than “hello”...
“So far the worst experience of my life.” - Qype User
The London Eye is a 400-foot tall observation wheel providing incredible views of the Thames, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey at a leisurely pace. The lines are long and it’s not cheap (prices start at £27), but “worst experience of my life” feels a tad hyperbolic.
Big Ben - London
“A giant Clock? I genuinely don’t know what all the fuss is about! can someone help me?” - Qype User
Fun fact: It’s not actually the clock tower that’s named Big Ben, but the 13.7-tonne bell inside. The tower itself, which opened in 1859, is called the Elizabeth Tower.
So technically, it’s the Elizabeth Tower that’s a totally lame “giant clock.” Now you know.
“I might be bias - but being used to Buckingham Palace I just don't think Sweden's alternative can compare by any means and perhaps maybe it is in the wrong location being right across the way from Parliament with the constitutional monarchy of Sweden being established in the 1800s, it makes me surprised and uncomfortable regarding the Palace being so close to Parliament especially considering the history of the two back home in the UK.” - Aaron S.
Stockholm Palace is the primary residence of the Swedish monarch and is one of the largest palaces in Europe. It's true, it is next to the Swedish Parliament, but things seem to be going well for them, so let it go, mister.
“Be careful if you get ice-cream, the birds will grab it from your hand. Multiple of my friends had birds step in their ice-cream when they were holding it (great entertainment).” - Allison K.
Helsinki Cathedral in Finland was built in 1852 and became a landmark for the country. Unfortunately, the sculptures at the front of the church are popular with birds who have a strange vendetta against ice cream.
Rijksmuseum - Amsterdam
“I really appreciate the skills these artists had back in the days in order to create these masterpieces, but I am just not sophisticated enough to enjoy it and spend my day there. I am more of an outdoor adventurer.” - Chi L.
Pro tip: If you’re not into art and prefer the outdoors, do not spend your day in an art museum. You’re welcome.
Vasa Museum - Stockholm
“This museum is about an old ship. Of course we had to pay. Since this is a Swedish museum and still don't understand why. The ship was rescued from the bottom of the Swedish harbor. The artwork was beautiful and well that is about it. It's an old ship that you can basically look up or even watch a video online.” - Kelvin P.
The actual Vasa ship sank in Stockholm in 1628. It was salvaged in 1961 and turned into a maritime museum in Sweden. It’s the world's best-preserved 17th-century ship.
You could see it in person, taking in its staggering scope up close while marveling at its intricate details.
Or you could sit on your couch and pull up a two-minute YouTube video. You do you.
Heineken Experience - Amsterdam
“Not impressed. Disappointed. Overpriced brewery tour. Too busy. Too crowded. Smell of horse s***.” - Bill M.
The Heineken Experience is an interactive brewery tour in Amsterdam. Overpriced? Sure. Smells of horse crap? Debatable.
Giant’s Causeway - Bushmills, Ireland
“FFS talk about misrepresentation in advertising, no giants, no leprechauns.” - Paul G.
Giant’s Causeway, situated along Ireland’s rocky coastline and known for causing many shipwrecks back in the day, is made up of about 40,000 hexagonal-shaped pillars.
There are a few legends behind it that include giants, but alas, no leprechauns. Tourists need to visit the end of a rainbow for that particular Irish attraction.
Temple Bar - Dublin
“Come here only if you need to cross it off on your "been here, done that" list because it's wildly overrated, pints are expensive, everything is sticky, and it's basically become just a huge tourist magnet (if it ever wasn't). Free postcards if you're into that.” - Alison A.
Irish pubs are all around the world, but Temple Bar in Dublin is one of those places that cashed in on its history (since 1599) to become a tourist attraction. Tourists love an ice-cold beer when traveling. We presume they love free postcards even more.
Park Guell - Barcelona, Spain
“Don't waste your time buying tickets. Go early by 8 a.m., and you get in the park for free. It is pretty run down and needs major renovation. In actuality — take a cab, tell them to wait, take a pic and leave.” - Diana M.
The view of Barcelona alone is worth more than just a few minutes, but to each their own.
Musee d’Orsay - Paris
“If you're not an art person, save your money. You're not going to magically fall in love with it just because you're in Paris. The museum itself is very beautiful but difficult to navigate.” - Jennifer B.
We've never heard of someone "magically falling in love" with a museum, but there's a first for everything!
It does happen to have the largest collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist artworks in the world. So, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and Renoir fans may certainly disagree with this review.
Atomium - Brussels
“Worst thing ever! $54 for myself, spouse, teen and child to enter. There was nothing in the balls! There was one ball that had lights in it, and that was it! The kids’ museum ball was for schools only, and it was locked! Useless space! Escalators go up to an empty ball with three frames on the wall, and then you go into another! Biggest waste of time and money! You can't even get a picture of the view because there are no windows! Scam!” - Wendy M.
Nothing in the balls?! How could they underdeliver like that?!
Alhambra - Granada, Spain
“The buildings are very underwhelming. The castles in France, England and other parts of Spain are much more impressive. Honestly, I would not waste my time if I knew what bust this place was. All the staff is unhelpful and basically hate you for being there. I listened to the audio guide, which was helpful historically; however, it's not very interesting. It's all very bland. No paintings, no color, just sandstone.” - Dan Q.
This was originally built as a small fortress in 889 A.D., so "bland" and "no color" may have been what they were going for back then.
Tivoli Gardens - Copenhagen, Denmark
“In this day and age, Tivoli has chosen to cooperate with someone as controversial as a fur business … and with the excuse that said fur business is in compliance with all laws tries to argue that such a thing is OK. Distasteful and unnecessary — and not a place for me or my family to spend our discretionary entertainment money.” - Pernille B.
OK, we get it. You don't like fur, and we respect that.
But this is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world. That has to count for something, right?
Astronomical Clock - Prague, Czech Republic
“Most overrated thing I have seen in my life. I go there all the time to get drunk and watch the stupid people film the clock EVERY hour. On the hour, there are a couple figurines that move their hands, and a couple puppets chase each other, and it’s old. That’s it, don’t waste your time, there are a lot more things to see.” - Michael S.
We totally get that people-watching is a better use of your time than visiting this clock, but this one can tell you all the astronomical information you need to know — like relative positions of the sun, moon and zodiacal constellations.
Pena National Palace - Sintra, Portugal
“This is a classic tourist trap. The line to get in was over one-hour long. Once inside the palace, the guests are herded single file through a few rooms with old furniture off the small courtyard. Absolutely nothing remarkable in most rooms. No pictures inside rule strictly enforced because otherwise it would be known to all that there is nothing to see. On the outside, if I wanted to see a castle painted in unnaturally fresh and bright colors, I could have gone to Disneyland.” - Lin L.
This place definitely has long lines, especially during high tourist seasons. But does Disneyland not all of a sudden, or did we miss something?
Casa Batllo - Barcelona, Spain
“This casa is under restoration, meaning some areas like the rooftop is closed off. Cost 25 Euro to get in. I was done looking at this place in 15 mins. Save yourself the 25 Euro and head over to Casa Mila, which I think is so much better.” - Cindy T.
Hmmm... this colorful building has been refurbished several times since Gaudi's original remodel in 1904. Maybe the reviewer happened to visit during one of those times?
Casa Mila - Barcelona, Spain
“Nothing to see, very boring. I would recommend using your money to dine or see a soccer game. This place was highly disappointing. It was basically a roof with a few statues scattered around on top.” - Laura Z.
Apparently, not everyone agrees that Casa Mila is "much better" as the previous Casa Batllo reviewer pointed out.
The Uffizi - Florence, Italy
“Low-quality art. Medusa painting not realistic — did not turn me into stone. Gratuitous nudity and lots of adult subject matter as well as graphic violence. Similar to harmful video games. Would give zero stars if I could.” - Patrick O.
So, was "being turned into stone" the goal of the visit? If so, that certainly explains the disappointment.
Edinburgh Castle - Edinburgh, Scotland
“Gaudy and overhyped. Lots of mannequins. Not worth the money unless you're going on a school trip.” - Monique S.
OK, "lots of mannequins" can certainly be creepy, but this castle on a hill happens to be Scotland's most-visited paid tourist attraction (and we're going to guess that's for good reason).
Tate Modern - London
“Complete waste of time! It's basically one big multilevel gift shop. The only redeeming point is the free view on the 10th floor.” - Sarra H.
We do love an art museum with a good view.
Guinness Storehouse - Dublin
“This place feels very corporate: canned, manufactured and slapped on a plastic lunchbox. Honestly, felt more like a theme park than a brewery tour. I get that it is a corporation, but I've been to other large corporate breweries, and they managed to make it more personal.” - Matthew Z.
Wait, plastic lunchboxes aren't cool anymore?
Las Ramblas - Barcelona, Spain
“The only reason to come here is to go to the Mercat de la Boqueria. Otherwise, it has nothing but shops offering fake shirts, pickpocketers, overpriced shops. Waste of time!” - Felix D.
This street runs right through the heart of Barcelona. Yes, it's crowded and touristy, and locals hate it. But can you simply take a look to see what all the fuss is about and then walk down another street?
Yes, it's that simple.
The Beatles Story - Liverpool, England
“Don't waste your money. Cheesy and overcommercialized. Wish I had spent my money otherwise. The gift shop was good though — reasonable prices and good selection.” - Paula K.
We get it. Nothing will ever be the same as seeing the Fab Four play here all those years ago.
