Since the pyramids are thousands of years old, people are let in bunches to inspect them.

The wall is around 13,171 miles long and has been a part of most of the western movies that show China in them. Most tourists would love to walk a stretch of the wall and that’s what tourists do. They click pictures and walk along the wall and its gets very crowded. Not something you want to do on a holiday.
9 Eiffel tower
Another romantic place is the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is the place where most couples get engaged and one of the favorite pastimes is to have a picnic with your loved ones on the lawns of the tower. But the problem is that the lawns are mostly filled with locals who enjoy spending time there and tourists who have the same idea.
