The Five Most Artistic Cities In The World

The five most artistic cities in the world that often run through my mind are London, Paris, Rome, Florence, and Vienna. London is home to over 200 separate art venues, including the National Gallery of art that houses original works by da Vinci and Van Gogh, the Royal Opera House, and a mansion that once was the home of the Duke of Wellington. In Paris you will find many museums and monuments. From the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre that houses da Vinci’s original Mona Lisa and was originally built in the late 12th century, there is art and history all around. Rome was not built in a day, as the saying goes, and neither was their culture and art. In Rome you will find ancient sculptures and architecture along with the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo’s legendary ceiling, Spiritually themed art by Picasso, Gauguin, and Chagall. Florence is Michelangelo’s hometown and still houses examples of his magnificent architecture along with his sculpture “David.” In Vienna you will find ancient Egyptian art as well as works by Van Dyck and Rembrandt. At Kunsthalle Wien they showcase modern and contemporary art from artists such as Picasso while at Osterreichische Gallery, they have medieval and baroque art.
