Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera, which name means “Five Lands.” The houses are beautifully coloured. It is one of the most colourful places in the world, and the charm of the place is almost magical, along with the heavy crowd on one side, and the peaceful ambience on the complete contrast. Best part if this city is paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside – giving you a chance to take a slow walk and take it all in!

While many of the world’s most colourful towns and cities have historical reasons for their varied hues, Júzcar has a much more modern explanation. In 2011, Sony Pictures executives asked the Andalusian enclave if they could paint the town blue as a publicity stunt for those famous blue cartoons, the Smurfs. When The Smurfs 3D movie promotional blitz was over, Sony offered to restore the town back to its iconic pueblo Blanco. The residents of Júzcar, however, had gotten used to the tourists (and their euros) and voted to keep the city blue. It now has the distinction of being the only Smurf village in the world and the town hosts regular tours and events—some related to mushrooms, for which the area is known, and which both Smurfs and Spaniards love.
