In case you want to plan an alternative route visiting some of those towns, I recommend you take note of what I tell you next. I have selected 10 amazing towns, each from a different country.
1- Hallstatt (Austria)
It is spectacular. Normal than Unesco It will qualify it as the most beautiful town on the shore of a lake. Its houses are beautiful and the nature that surrounds it quickly envelops you. In addition, there is the possibility of taking a boat trip on the lake, something that I highly recommend after having had the fortune to do so.
