Florence, Italy: I remember walking down a small alleyway, making a sharp turn, and finding the magnificent Duomo stand directly in front of me. It took my breath away!

You have historic, cobbled-stoned Florence on one side, and the lush, rolling Tuscan countryside on the other as a sharp contrast. I could have sat up there all day.
