    Have you ever heard anyone talking like that? Please don't try to emulate Yoda. – userr2684291 Jun 12 '18 at 15:58

Yes, you can, but not in the manner that you have done.

Of all the places we visited on our trip, __________ was by far the most beautiful.

There must be some "rhetorical" reason to begin the sentence with a prepositional phrase where the preposition is of.

Of the options presented to us, it was the least expensive.

You can but don't, unless you have a very good reason.

It is hard to think of a context in which these sentences would be a good choice. Even the first (that you know is correct) is doubtful. The others are just not used, unless (as noted in a comment) you are Yoda from Star wars.

Perhaps when you want a marked contrast by bringing the Of phrase to the front it may be possible.

Of these matters I will not speak.
