There are so many attractions throughout the world that it can be hard to decide which ones to add to your ultimate travel bucket list. Whether you’re interested in historical monuments or contemporary landmarks there are thousands of attractions that are worth a visit. So how do you choose?
The TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards is here to help, with the winners decided by real-world travellers just like you! Here are the top 3 attractions from the 2022 awards:
1. Basilica de Sagrada Familia
The Sagrada Familia has been voted the top attraction in the world! This famously unfinished basilica is one of the most historical landmarks in Barcelona, having been originally commissioned in 1882. Largely developed by renowned architect Gaudi, the church has a completely unique style that has people flocking to it every year. But the intricate designs on the outside are arguably nothing compared to the beautiful columns, ceilings and stained glass windows inside, so a ticket for a tour is a must.
With all of our tickets like the Sagrada Familia and Gaudi Tour, which also takes you to Park Güell and Passeig de Gracia, you can skip the line and get instant access at the time of your booking. If you’re wanting to explore even more that Barcelona has to offer, you can also visit the Sagrada Familia and many other attractions using the Barcelona Explorer Pass!
2. The Colosseum
The Colosseum in Rome was just off the top spot, coming in second place. This large attraction right in the centre of the city is one of the best preserved relics of Ancient Rome, giving visitors a glimpse into the lives of those who used to call it home. As portrayed in many films and tv shows, the Colosseum was once used for entertainment like gladiator fights and chariot races.
With so much history, a guided tour will give you the most immersive experience and insider knowledge. Our Gladiator’s Gate: Special Access Colosseum Tour with Arena Floor for example will take you down to the arena itself through the side gate once used by gladiators.
3. Empire State Building
Finishing up the top three is the Empire State Building, one of the most famous buildings in the world thanks to its place in pop culture and features in films like King Kong and Sleepless in Seattle. Reaching 1454ft high, its open-air observation deck offers unrivalled views of New York City in all directions. While it may not be the tallest building in New York, its location in the centre of the city gives you a perfect outlook across uptown and downtown, including the nearby Central Park. And on a clear day, you can even see up to 5 surrounding states over 80 miles.
However you want to visit the Empire State Building, we have tickets to suit everyone, including General Admission, Premium VIP Tours, Sunrise and Sunset Experiences and Express Tickets. Or you can use the New York Explorer Pass to visit up to 10 of New York’s must-see attractions!
