The World's Most Glamorous Cities
The month of May is all about glamour, from the Cannes Film Festival to the Monaco Grand Prix and London Motor Show. In the spirit of this enchanting and magical time of the year, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty compiled a list of the most glamorous cities around the globe — below I’ve outlined a few of my favorites:
Maybe it’s the cobblestone streets or the quaint bistros, but there is something to be said for the romanticism flowing through the Parisian air. The city has long served as a mecca of art and fashion. It’s home to one of the world’s most iconic landmarks (the Eiffel Tower) and the fashionable Avenue des Champs-Elysées. Regardless of the reason for visiting, one thing rings true: Paris and glamour are synonymous.
Cannes has served as a favorite holiday destination for the world’s wealthy elite for generations but it truly emerged into popularity in 1946, when the Cannes Film Festival graced its shores. It is an ultimate vacation haven, complete with grand villas, renowned restaurants, luxury hotels, and more. When I think glamour, an afternoon on the Boulevard de la Croisette in springtime comes to mind.
London is one of the world’s most influential cities, from the history of Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, to modern destinations such as the London Eye and The Gherkin. There are a range of annual events to match London’s embodiment of old and new glamour, including the London Motor Show, Wimbledon, and Fashion Week, among others.
