Your French bashing and apparent bigging-up of Britain is quaint, ridiculous, and embarrassing - for your sake no less, knock it off.

This is true, something like 1400 hours per year of sunshine in London against 1800 in Paris.

Honestly I can't say anything about the statistics here but nothing wrong with a cloudy day and some rain. It's romantic man. It is great to visit those art galleries and cafe shops with your girl in a rainy day

I am more of a London fan but Paris has its amazing scenes in rainy days as well

You don't have four wives? What's wrong with you?

Having more than five wives is against forum rules. You are getting a ban!

In Rome and Naples, respectively, the average precipitation is 900 mm and 1000 mm. Despite this, southern Italy is known worldwide as the land of the sun.
In London, however, rainfall is generally weak, with a different distribution during the year compared to Mediterranean cities. The peculiarity of the English climate is the extensive cloud cover often present, even if it doesn't rain a lot.
For this reason London is known as a grey city.

Top Ten skylines in Europe


1. London ( Just too big, soooo much going on)

2. Moscow ( That little cluster is Everything lol )

3. Istanbul ( In the big league with London ..)

4. Paris ( Beautiful. But a museum)

5. Warsaw ( Happening city changing before our eyes )

6. Frankfurt ( much smaller than all the above and stagnating )

7. Rotterdam ( impressive but no aesthetic appeal or quality )

8. Madrid

9. Birmingham

10 Milan

How the hell is Frankfurts skyline smaller than Warsaws? And Londons is actually small.
