I love big cities, but there are many in the world that look remarkably similar. They constantly present skyscrapers, busy streets and busy people with business attire.
In my travels, I discovered that one of the best ways to experience a fundamentally different culture is to explore the smaller towns far from the big cities. Below are 27 of the most beautiful villages in the world (some small cities) that immediately show what they really are.
Let me know in the comments what your favorite town is!
