Japanese travel agents believe these to be the 30 most beautiful towns in Europe, but only one UK location makes the list

These are the 30 prettiest towns in Europe, according to the fine people at the Japanese Association of Travel Agents (JATA).

It was challenged to come up with 30 smaller destinations to promote to holidaymakers. This is what they came up with (and there’s only one in Britain).

1. Kilkenny, Ireland

On the banks of the River Nore in the province of Leinster, Kilkenny is often referred to as a city though it is the size of a large town. Its heritage is on display in the form of Kilkenny Castle, St Canice’s Cathedral and its medieval walls.

2. Berat, Albania

Mangalem, the city of Berat’s old town, sits on the banks of the river Osum and is a Unesco World Heritage Site. In medieval times it was a frontier town of the Byzantine Empire, to which its citadel testifies.

3. Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy

With a permanent population of around 10 people – but 600,000 annual tourists – the hilltop village has become a focal point of central Italian holidays.
