Real-time Connectivity and Mobile Access Help Travelers Enjoy More, Wait Less and Experience La Dolce Vita

For many travelers, a trip to Europe is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The team at Viator, a TripAdvisor company and the leading resource for tours and activities worldwide, is revealing the best tips and tours to help every type of traveler create the most memorable trip possible. Available for booking on desktop and mobile, in advance and in destination – all powered by Viator's real-time connectivity -- Viator's recommendations for helping travelers make the most of their moments abroad include skip the line tours (save valuable time), VIP experiences (get valuable access) and anything and everything to do with the local food and wine scene (delizioso!).

Skip the Line and VIP
Europe in the summer: the weather is warm, the skies are clear and the lines are long. For travelers who plan ahead, even just a little bit, or in some cases even for those travelers who find themselves already standing in one of those long, hot lines – real-time connectivity plus the Viator App and mobile websites make it possible to skip them completely and use that extra time (sometimes several hours) to explore more of their destination, including special access activities via Viator’s VIP offerings.

Travelers can:

  • Skip the line in Rome, Florence and Venice at the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, St. Mark’s Cathedral, and the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries
  • Skip the line in Paris at the the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Musée D’Orsay and Versailles
  • Skip the line in Amsterdam at the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum
  • Skip the line in London at the London Eye, the Tower of London and Hampton Court
  • Skip the line in Spain at Sagrada Familia, Alhambra, the Prado Museum and UNESCO-listed Park Güell.

Sip the Wine
