2. Rome, Italy : If it's ancient Roman architecture you're after, this is heaven!

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "You have to try the gelato, pizzas and pasta - it would be rude not to! Just walking the streets and seeing the architecture is a wonderful experience. Visiting some of the churches and museums is a must. Downside is the poor beggars on most streets and please beware of street sellars with bracelets !!! Just say no! "

4. Prague, Czech Republic : Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque- you name it and Prague has it!

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "We spent a day at the Prague castle complex, which was very interesting. We also went around the Old Town Hall with a brilliant guide, who was a Czech history teacher full of stories, and saw the astronomical clock. Other highlights included the Municipal House (with another excellent guide), Mucha museum and Apple museum. We had very sunny weather and walked around a great deal admiring the architecture and enjoying the atmosphere. Can recommend the Green Tomato Restaurant."

5. Barcelona, Spain : Mecca for Gaudi lovers and Modernist architecture connoisseurs!

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Fabulous architecture. Nice feel to the city, especially the gothic quarter and the seafront. Unfortunately funicular railway broke down just before we got to it so didn't get to the top. Also, the trams up to the funicular aren't working currently, but the bus takes you up the same route and the houses on the way upare amazing, like fairy tale houses . "
