Picturesque Towns in Europe: Your Favorite?

Jump to last reply

I was in the process of sending a good friend a copy of our Essential Europe guide (she'll be living in Spain for a year but plans to travel around a good deal) when I stumbled upon a section early in the guide that lists some of our editors' favorite "picturesque" towns. We have nominated the following:

Brugge, Belgium
Èze, France
Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber, Germany
Bath, Great Britain
Mykonos Town, Greece
Lucca, Italy
Delft, Netherlands
Sintra, Portugal
Mürren, Switzerland

Just curious--

1. How many of these have you been to?
2. Would you agree that they're particularly "picturesque"?
3. What is woefully missing from this list do you think?

Of these, I've only been to Bath. From my own experience, I know I'd add either Calvi or Ajaccio in Corsica.

Just a fun question for a Thursday afternoon---
