then, it's curious as you focused the attention only on Milan and not also on Liverpool...

anyway, Milan skyline is not finished here, but, as you all know, there's a new cluster U/C: the "CityLife" cluster ---> 207 m (+ antenna = 247 m) + 175 m + 165 m + 3 other highrise towers.

and this is the current skyline, without considering CityLife cluster...if it's not a skyline...i don't know what to say.


.
You already said it, apart from the new cluster, which is still u/c for the most part, Milan doesn't have many other highrise buildings.

Rotterdam has more highrises, it's skyline is more spreadout across the city and it's more diverse. In it's layout and diversity I rate it even higher than Frankfurts, except Frankfurt has a few buildings which are a lot higher than those in R'dam.

Sometimes people like lo mein in stead of chow mein. Personal preferences are not discussable, in my opinion. My favorite city in the world is London.

It doesn't mean shorter guys are ugly or the tallest guy on earth is the best model. It is just a fact that a decent height is very important in order to be a model. You can't become a David Gundy if you are very handsome but 5'7" tall.

You only make people dislike Paris with your repulsive attitude. It is not a good way to promote what you love. I don't mean to hurt your feelings though.
A city skyline is not a Fashion Catwalk. A Fashion Catwalk is superficial - false - arrogant and does not represent reality. A city is real, organic, accessible with character, charm, mystery and this is reflected in it's skyline - for everyone .
PS - Who said I was promoting Paris? I hate Paris. Sorry to burst your bubble...

We have cities now in Europe one can only separate as to subjectivity ..

That's about it ..

I see a beautiful red brick building in London and someone else, possibly French, see's a an ugly mess.. and vice versa ect...

Is it a terrible idea to visit Barcelona at the end of March and the beginning of April? I mean the weather wise. I have already booked the non refundable tickets.

Terrible idea, a lot of typhoons, hurricanes even earthquakes during that time of the the year.

You forgot the mention the volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, epidemics, zombies and meteor rains hitting the city. Just a few exciting things to know before you travel Seriously, spring is the perfect time to visit Mediterranean cities because it wouldn't be too hot or cold. Just perfect. Plus it wouldn't be filled up with tourists yet because summer months are the peak season.

yes it is already happening. There seems to be serious competitions between Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.

SO143, don't start again, at least it's a real pic, not some renders of not existing buildings in the UK.
