14. Alsace, France
Bonjour Ladies and gentleman. Welcome to Alsace, where you will find a riot of colours in every nook and corners. The half timbered houses with steeped roofs are beaming with colours as per the tradition in the past; though the reason has obviously changed for good. Sitting blissfully at the Vosges Mountains, this region makes some finest wines in the entire world. Let’s raise a toast to this picturesque city of France and bask in the glory of all the things it has to offer.
