Many of Europe’s famous cities are best known for their food, wine, history, or culture. Here is a list of 16 cities in Europe that attract visitors because of their beautiful colors! Whether the color comes from paint or plants, aqua or art, each city has a different palette to offer visitors.

Manarola, Italy

Manarola is the second smallest of the towns that make up the Cinque Terre, a famous tourist destination located in the province of Liguria, Italy. The beautifully colored houses are situated on terraces that overlook the sea. A famous walking trail, the Via dell’Amore (Love’s Trail) leads from Manarola to Riomaggiore, another of the beautiful towns along the Italian Riviera. On a clear day, the expressive hues of the houses are matched only by the bright blue of the sea.

Stockholm, Sweden

The beautiful harbor of Gamla Stan (Old Town), Stockholm is best seen by morning light. For the most colorful views of the whole city, head towards Stortorget, the small public square where large 16th and 17th century buildings are painted in bright yellows and oranges.

Traditionally known for delicate and colorful blown glass, Burano is also the home of many artisans who express themselves in their work as well as in their homes. The local government encourages their creativity, but does require that homeowners submit a request before repainting. So far, it looks like they’ve avoided color clashing well!
