As Italy’s fashion capital,  this place is a must for internet enthusiasts and architecture fans – not unlike this year’s second-place winter, London, England which racked up 154,408,703 insta-tags and 54,200,000,000 views on Musical.ly’s successor. 

Rounding out the top 5, Big Seven saw Paris, France, followed by Istanbul, Turkey and, way on the other side of the pond, New York City, USA.

Now, as we mentioned. Only one Canadian spot made this year’s list – and their choice may or may not surprise you!

Though it didn’t crack the top 10 (or even the top 20) Banff, Alberta, was listed as the 40th most Instagrammable place in the world, having gained 764,100,000 views on TikTok and 3,007,578 tags on IG.
