In our line of work where we find cheap international flights to explore the world, we often come across a number of great cities that are just prime for a photo op. It’s always hard to narrow down the list, but we’ve tried. Say cheese to these 10 beautiful, Instagram-worthy cities from around the world.
Rio de Janeiro
Samba, soccer, beautiful people, and that gorgeous girl from Ipanema, all safely watched over by the iconic Christ the Redeemer. This is one city we can’t stop snapping.
Dotted with temples, shrines, and intricately manicured gardens, you’re one traditional tea ceremony away from falling in love with Japan’s old capital city.
The City of 100 Spires never disappoints the camera. It’s enchanting Old Town Square, Gothic churches, and baroque buildings are straight out of the pages of a fairytale.
San Sebastián (Spain)

This little Basque coastal beauty is well known for its culinary scene, but we also love its Parte Vieja (old town) and beautiful beaches opening out to the Bay of Biscay.
Scotland’s hilly capital city is more than just Edinburgh Castle and fab festivals. There are quaint and colorful neighborhoods, cobblestone streets, and locals who’d love to meet you over a pint.

This city that encompasses so much history, art, culture, architecture, and food is always romantic. The Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basilica are some of our fave photo spots.
Capetown (South Africa)
The majestic Table Mountain flows down into the ocean in this beautiful South African port city. Cable cars ascending over the city give you some breathtaking views.

Within its walled Old Town, Tallinn remains one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. Visitors discover a city full of Gothic splendor, including the landmark 13th century St. Nicholas Church.
The jewel in Colombia’s Caribbean coast, this historic port city is famous for its beaches but we also love its colorful Spanish colonial buildings that always attract our lenses.
There are no surprises here. The romantic City of Lights is one for the ages, and it can be captured, either by the Eiffel Tower or a cozy cafe, to look at its absolute postcard best.
