When considering a visit to Europe, some might become overwhelmed with the endless options when it comes to finding the best places to visit and the huge variety between countries. While hitting up Europe’s capital cities like London, Paris, Prague, or Rome, it’s always a great idea to include a few, smaller, picturesque towns, but finding these pretty little towns can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. So, I’ve gathered 50 small cities and cute towns in Europe that are just downright STUPID PRETTY!

Just across the border from Germany in the region known as Appenzellerland, in the historic canton of Appenzell is Appenzell.

Guest Post by David from Travelsewhere When you travel to Europe, you kind of expect to find some unbelievably picturesque cities and towns.
