Stairs to make you stare

When visiting the Lapa steps in Rio de Janerio I was struck by how Jorge Selaron, a Chilean artist, had managed to transform a piece of everyday life into an elaborate piece of art. This brightly coloured stairway brings life to this mundane, urban area and have become a must see sight for many a tourist.

Though this may well be the most famous of intriguing stairways it does not stand alone. So here are my top 5 picks of stairs to rival Selaron’s staircase…

1) Sicily


2) San Fransisco


3) Angers


4) Seoul


5) Philadelphia
