There are so many, but my preferred and not forementioned medieval cities in my home country, Italy, are...

Erice, Sicily















San Gimignano, Tuscany






Spello, in Umbria region:


Porto Venere in Liguria:




And Ischia in Campania region


Just to name a few I actually visited. Other larger cities may include Naples, Bologna or Pavia, pretty much conserved as well...
But in general, Europe is very well conserved! Bye and thanks for the beautiful pictures of historical urban landscapes!

All the Baroque buildings in some of the towns shown are an easy give away that the cities are not really medieval.
well, here "medieval" would mean pre-1850, not pre-1450 as in the history books.

Italian cities are very wonderful, romantic and old but town houses are very dirty, untidy and neglected. But not always dirties are bad. Certainly it aren't boring.

What italian towns did you visit exactly? Most medieval cores are quite well kept infact.

i think that making charts and lists is just pointless, there are tens of thousands of medieval cities and towns in europe, it's impossible to make a significant list...

here are few examples from the rome outskirts:


Bomarzo





Bassano Romano





Blera



Barbarano Romano



Borgo di Cicignano



Calcata





Capranica



Caprarola





Carbognano



Castel San Pietro Romano



Castiglione in Teverina



Civita di Bagnoregio







Fabrica di Roma



Gavignano



Mazzano Romano





Montefiascone



Morolo



Nepi



Orte



Palombara Sabina



Patrica



Ronciglione



Soriano nel Cimino



Sutri



Tarquinia





Tolfa



Vignanello



Zagarolo



some other towns from central italy:

Cortona



Lugnano in Teverina





Orvieto







Recanati



Spoleto



Todi





Trevi



and thousands of others...

I'm in love too with Spoleto! Its castle and its roman acqueduct trasformed in XIII century in a bridge are just too exciting! Here you are a few more sights of the city, I hope you like them!









This bridge is 236 meters long and 78 meters high, making it one of the most daring acqueduct of roman era (even if it was restored as a bridge in XIII century, as I mentioned above)

Indeed, but did you spend a night there, cause I did it several times few years ago (in the monastery), and trust me, the Mont St-Michel at night after most of the tourists have left the place, is just wonderful, and very quiet.

Medieval cities have a romantic atmosphere. I love it especially in cities such as Venice, Krakow, Amsterdam, Siena and in the cities in France, Germany, Poland and Italy. Too bad I do not live in those times. It's a shame that a lot of cities of that time is not preserved in its entirety today. Very sorry for me, for example, demolition of walls in Krakow and many other Polish and European cities. With them the city would have looked very magical.

No, I was there during the day.

Ok, that sound's great. Most places gets better when the tourists has left.
