For nearly 400 posts, this is only the first time that I’ve done a travel related top 10 ranking post.
These are based on MY preferences out of MY travel experiences.
10. Stratosphere [Las Vegas, Nevada]
You can view the pretty casino lights and themes of the Sin City from Stratosphere. However, I heard seeing it from the top of Mandalay Bay is so much better especially it being near the main sights.
09. The Castle of Kavala [Kavala, Greece]
One of the most underrated travel destinations has one of my best overlooking views I’ve ever seen.
08. Chania [Crete, Greece]
This is a very personal choice, mainly because that’s a view from my apartment when I was in Greece. 🙂 You can see the similar view from Koukouvaya Cafe or Nymfes Cafe; or see the other side at Mega Place; all in Chania.
07. Eiffel Tower [Paris, France]
Well, duh! I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m including the City of Light on the list.
06. Tokyo Tower, Skytree, World Trade Center [Tokyo, Japan]
I was shocked how concrete Tokyo really is. Skyscrapers everywhere. But don’t be alarmed, there are still a lot of hidden nature gems scattered around this city. You just not have to keep a wider look. 🙂 The top picture is from Skytree. The bottom picture shows Tokyo Tower as seen from World Trade Center.
05. Michelangelo Plaza [Florence, Italy]
I love Florence. I’m sure not everyone agrees, but I actually prefer it over Venice. 😉
04. Griffith Park Observatory [Los Angeles, California]
An outstanding vantage point to view the Hollywood Sign, the California sun, and LA’s skyline.
03. Acropolis [Athens, Greece]
Acropolis means the highest point of a city in Greece. Despite the bad reps of Athens from being messy, crowded, and congested, I actually love the city for its numerous attractions and historical presence. Get atop the Acropolis and see the concrete jungle that is Athens.
02. Oia [Santorini, Greece]
Santorini is popular for all the right reasons.
It’s a tight competition between this and my #1.
01. Capri, Italy
How I wish I could just fly and glide through this gorgeous overlooking view.
Dang! I, myself, am day-dreaming of going to these places.
Well there you have it, folks. These are my most favorite city overlooking views. Care to share some of yours?
Others into considerations:
Palazzo Pubblico [San Marino, Italy]; Old Fortress [Corfu, Greece]; San Francisco, California; Rome, Italy; Urasoe [Okinawa, Japan]; Paleochora, Chania [Crete, Greece]; Cabrillo National Monument [San Diego]; Paul Getty Center [Los Angeles]; White Tower [Thessaloniki, Greece]; Serra Cross Park [Ventura, California]; Jerez, Spain; Naxos, Greece; La Fortezza [Rethymno, Greece]; etc.
I hope to see you on my 400th post, coming up next!
