The illustrations of the paintings on this website are of course no match for the beauty of the originals, so if at all possible you should go and see these works for yourself.
And fortunately, you can. There are many European towns that have played an important part in art history, and have hours of cultural, spiritual and artistic pleasure to offer.
For your enjoyment, we have categorized some of these art towns, listing their contributions to art and culture in the present and the past.
All towns mentioned also have much to offer in the line of accommodation and other worldly enjoyments, making them very suitable for a city trip, a long weekend or a cultural vacation.
