With great travel comes the responsibility of great photography! If you did not click it right, the trip was presumably not right!
So if you love to capture while you travel, grab a cam and choose your next travel destination from our list of the most photographed places in the world:
10. St. Stephen’s Basilica - Budapest, Hungary
Hungary is home to some of the most beautiful churches in the world. St. Stephen’s Basilica is the largest church in Budapest dedicated to Hungary’s first king, St. Stephen. It houses Hungary’s most sacred treasure, St. Stephen’s mummified right hand, the Szent Jobb (Holy Right Hand).
Built in neo-classical style, it took more than 50 years to complete; its facade overlooks the grand St. Stephen’s Square, a great place to enjoy coffee at open-air cafes. Climb up to the cupola for a breathtaking view of Budapest.
9. Caminito - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Caminito literally translates to ‘little walkway’ or ‘little street’; at less than 100 meters long, that’s exactly what it is! Lined with brightly painted buildings in front of which artists sell paintings and keep the place alive, it is a great place to spend an afternoon and simply pose for beautiful pictures!
In the otherwise run down La Boca neighbourhood, the colourful street is inspired in equal measure by tango culture and soccer!
8. Piazzale Michelangelo - Florence, Italy
This is a vantage point, from where you can point your lens and capture the most amazing views of Florence and the Arno valley. The Piazzale itself isn’t photographed much, its elevation makes it the perfect place to photograph from.
Most of Piazzale Michelangelo is actuallty a parking lot, tourists and locals come here to enjoy the view!
7. Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo - Monte Carlo, Monaco
So you are visiting Monaco, you are most probably rich! Stay at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo! Ok, so you’re not that rich, No problemo! You can always get photographed inside or beside or outside this famous superbly engineered hotel.
6. Ponte dell’Accademia - Venice, Italy
One of the four bridges that cross Venice’s Grand Canal, there’s really no reason in particular why this one is so popular, especially with couples in love. It’s the one where you attach your padlocks of love, symbolizing undying love or some such thing.
This is definitely not the best place for solo pictures!
5. Maiden’s Tower - Istanbul, Turkey
It’s not really anything fantastical or fabulous, it looks pretty much like any other land mass surrounded by water. What makes it so extraordinary is that you can actually see the place where the European and Asian continents meet.
There are a number of popular stories revolving around maidens associated with the tower, they are mostly of myth and legend. Originally built as a watchtower, the Maiden’s Tower also served as a lighthouse.
4. Moulin Rouge - Paris, France
Of all the famous places to photograph in photogenic Paris, the Moulan Rouge seems to be the most popular. The brightest lights in the City of Lights are at Moulin Rouge.
Don’t forget to capture that huge res windmill sitting atop. It’s an adults only show but have no doubt, it is the show of a lifetime!
3. Park Güell - Barcelona, Spain
Gaudi all the way! Commissioned by Eusebi Guell as a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy, the park is home to many of Antoni Gaudi’s works including the Gaudi dragon. The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings.
At the top of Güell Park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona City. All in all, a great place to be photographed and a great place from where to capture the city!
2. Trinità dei Monti - Rome, Italy
Rome is the second most photographed place in the world. The Chiesa di Trinità dei Monti is perhaps better known for its location atop the Spanish Steps, overlooking the Piazza di Spagna forming a backdrop that cannot be ignored, than for anything else.
The Renaissance Church was built over an enormous vineyard donated by King Charles VIII of France to an order of monks.
1. Guggenheim Museum - New York City, New York
This is the most camera friendly landmark in NYC! The Guggenheim Museum, located on a section of Fifth Avenue known as Museum Mile, is one of the most significant architectural icons of the 20th century. It is really quite unique - the museum is shaped roughly like a teacup or an upside down terraced hill.
You will have an “art- attack” while on a tour of this museum as it has so much to offer on display! Be sure you have a whole day to explore it and click away!
And that closes the list of the 10 most photographed places in the world. Quite a surprising list if you ask me, none of the famously popular expected ones in there, but there it is!
