The Most Picturesque Neighborhoods in the World

Comments  (1)

Mar 5, 2013 —  They say a whole is only as good as the sum of its parts, and when it comes to cities, we believe that phrase rings true. Every major city is composed of an ensemble of neighborhoods that each represent one quintessential aspect of the city. Whether it's the bohemian quarter or the rampant nightclub corridor, losing any of these vital parts would change our favorite cities as we know them today. While we love everything about our Party Earth cities, the scenic neighborhoods have stolen our hearts. With their endless parks, hidden cafés, and local taverns, these gems are clear indicators that the path less taken is the one that leads to happiness. Check out several of our favorite picturesque neighborhoods from around the world and let us know what you think!
