There top 20, drawn up through the hashtag count collected on February 13, 2020, reserves a couple of surprises for us Italians (but we are not so surprised, after all). The first good news? First of all, we must not go too far to discover the most photographed villages on the planet: the 15% of the most instagrammed countries in the world is found in Italy, with almost 4 million hashtags. After all, Italy is one of the most loved countries abroad precisely because of its characteristic villages, unique places to breathe history, culture and beauty.
With the highest percentage of posts, we could only place ourselves in first place in the ranking. To win over all there are Five lands of Liguria, UNESCO World Heritage Sites thanks to the traditional and millennial lifestyle that allowed to establish a harmonious symbiosis between man and nature: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, five fishing villages that extend for about 10 kilometers coast, where sea and mountains merge together. And, of course, enjoy delicious seafood specialties.

In fourth place in the ranking is Burano, island of the Venice lagoon that has conquered more than 1 million photos on Instagram thanks to the colors of its picturesque houses, the craftsmanship of lace and the typical bureaus bussolai.
