Sardinia, Italy by Angela of Chasing The Unexpected
Tuscany, Italy by Michelle of Intentional Travellers
It’s no wonder “under the Tuscan sun” is such a ubiquitous phrase. The light in Tuscany has its own magical glow to it, providing dazzling sunsets night after night. A work-away exchange recently provided us the opportunity to spend six weeks in a relatively unknown corner of Tuscany called Castagneto-Carducci. We quickly fell in love with the area, which is blessed not only with gorgeous sunsets but also vineyards, olive groves, rolling hills, fantastic produce, charming villages, historic landmarks, and beautiful beaches.

Porto, Portugal of James by Portugalist
The Dom Luís I Bridge is the perfect place to stand and watch the sun go down over Porto. From here you not only get to see the sun set over Porto, but over Vila Nova de Gaia as well. At 45 metres in height, it provides an unparalleled view of the rooftops of both cities as well as along the River Douro.
Etretat, France by Donovan of Travel Voila
If you are exploring Normandy region in France, you have to visit Falaise d’Etretat (The Cliffs of Etretat). Rated #1 things to do in Etretat, this is a lovely seaside town which is popular for day trip. It is only 3 hours drive from Paris, and you can do this after your visit to Mont Saint Michel. The town is famous for their white cliffs and the three natural rock arches. The seaside is so magnificent that several artist including Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet have painted there.
Facing the Atlantic Ocean, you have unblocked view of the sunset from the cliffs as well as the bottom of the cliffs. You can chill at the bars along the shore while witnessing the sky turning orange.
Reykjavik, Iceland by Megan of Megan Starr
The best sunset I have ever witnessed with my own eyes was this one in Reykjavik, one of the stops for our South Iceland itinerary. I had been venturing around the city enjoying the best of its vegetarian fare when I saw the colors starting to pop. I decided to wander over and watch. I took photo after photo only to quickly realize that the sunset was much better admired without the camera. I put it down while the sky transformed from these colors into something even more amazing- double rainbow and all! This has become one of the most magical days in Iceland that I have experienced. I have been to Reykjavik twice and spent several days there all together and I have never seen more beautiful sunsets than the ones I have witnessed there.
