1. Colmar, France

Colmar in the Alsace region of France is simply beautiful, with wonderful colourful buildings and a stunning area called La Petite Venise. As well as this area, the entire old town is full of picture opportunities with great atmosphere and lots of restaurants and interesting buildings.

Prague Old Town is fantastic with great viewpoints such as Charles Bridge Towers, Old Town Hall, Prague Castle and some restaurants such as Hotel U Prince which have rooftop restaurants. The cobbled streets and old landmarks including Prague Castle will leave you constantly clicking that shutter.

3. Vienna, Austria

Vienna is a delight and a good way to see this city is to start at the Belvedere Palace, then walk down to Karlskirche, then on towards the central part of the city, including Stephansdom, Hofburg Palace, Rathaus and much more. You will find Vienna super clean with immaculate buildings, beautiful streets and magnificent architecture.

4. Venice, Italy

One of the great things about Venice is the lack of cars and roads. Instead, you have beautiful canals weaving throughout the city, narrow streets and old picturesque buildings. A great excursion from Venice is Burano which has some of the most colourful buildings on the planet.

5. Amsterdam, Netherlands

It’s easy to spend hours walking around the canals of Amsterdam, taking pictures of the interesting buildings and bridges, and allowing yourself to get lost in the streets. Amsterdam is also great for reflection shots where you will often get mirror-like images in the water.
