The capital of Spain’s Andalusia region, Seville blends modernity and history as easily as its famed flamenco dancers tap their feet: from its Old Town (the third-largest in Europe) to its world-renowned tapas scene. Seville is pretty enough to be in pictures—and it is, now that Game of Thrones has made the city a central shot location for its fifth and subsequent seasons. Several locations in Andalusia got screen time, but the crown jewel of them all is the Alcázar of Seville (pictured)…

With its bridges, turreted buildings, and picturesque Old Town, Lucerne is storybook Swiss. Nestled on the shores of Lake Lucerne, the city is also a popular departure point for the Swiss Alps, which are visible from the town. Make it a point to walk the city’s famed Kapellbrücke, the oldest covered bridge in Europe. —K.L.

The whole world witnessed Cape Town's beauty first hand during the 2010 World Cup: its penguin-populated, white-sand beaches within a few short miles of majestic Table Mountain, and rolling winelands just outside the city center. Coastal highways compare to the finest in the world, from the Amalfi Coast to the Pacific Coast Highway, and the gardens—notably Kirstenbosch National Botanic Gardens—are rich with king protea, a crowned flower that seems to (rightly) rule the floral kingdom…

Tucked high in Morocco’s Rif Mountains, the all-blue town of Chefchaouen is a calming respite from the overwhelming frenzy of Marrakech and Fez. The Jewish refugees from Europe who lived there during the 1930s first painted the city (either to symbolize heaven or as a mosquito repellent, depending on who you ask), and now the town is known as "The Blue Pearl." The town still keeps the tradition alive: Each year, the houses are washed with new coats of paint. —Lucy Laucht

Located over in southern France, the Millau Viaduct in the Aveyron region is one of the country's greatest engineering achievements. It also happens to be the tallest bridge in the world at 1,125 feet. Opened in 2004, the four-lane bridge is now a major route connecting France with Spain and offers beautiful views of the valley of the River Tarn.

The Dune du Pilat is the largest sand dune in Europe, and well worth a day trip from Bordeaux. Pack your bag with some local oysters, climb the 360-foot staircase to the top, and enjoy the magnificent sites for hours: You'll see blue ocean on one side, green pine forest on the other, and paragliders lilting in every direction above.

Giverny is a small village on the border of Normandy most famous for being the site of Claude Monet's cherished riverside house and garden, both of which are open to the public today. The pastel pink house is pretty as a picture, with spring green shutters and ivy crawling up every surface. And the gardens are like an impressionist painting come to life, with water lilies, weeping willows, wisterias, and the famous green Japanese bridge.
