Saint Nazaire cathedral.
This list was made up recently and it is my own personal opinion. I am certain many of the Travel Blog members on here have perhaps, seen more breathtaking views than I have. If so, please post them here. I would be very interested to know what other spectacular sights other people have seen, and would like to share with all of us. I should mention too that this list is shown in alphabetical order according to the name of the city (in capital letters) where the sight is located. For example, number 1 is not necessarily my favorite place. ALL of them are my favorites!

1. Saint Nazaire cathedral, from the Orb River in BEZIERS, France.

2. Mont Blanc and the Alps, from a street in COURMAYEUR, Italy.

3. The Arabian Sea with coconut trees in the foreground, from the terrace of the Hill & Sea View Hotel in KOVALAM, India.

4. Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourviere (located on a hill) in LYON, France.

5. View of the marina and city, from a restaurant in Principality of MONACO.

6. Moon over the Mekong River, from a riverside restaurant in NONGKHAI, Thailand.
