22. Bruges, Belgium

Bruges, Belgium

Stunningly beautiful, Bruges often misses out on the main tourist throng, but it's hard to see why. Filled with some of Europe's finest examples of 17th century Dutch architecture, Bruges is traversed by canals like a mini Amsterdam. Home to Michelangelo's sculpture "Madonna and Child", the town is a must-see for anyone interested in art. It was the only sculpture of Michelangelo's that was erected outside of Italy's borders while he was still alive, proving his fame had spread well beyond his home country during his life time.
