How about Monaco, with its buildings clustered together + ocean setting + hillside background.

Monaco's natural setting is second to none....I think in terms of man-made structures Monaco would be a good example of a B-class skyline in Europe. IMO

I would go with Frankfurt as well. It's not just the cluster but it's individual collection of skyscrapers. Who would not forget the iconic Messeturm. Plus if you have played Simcity 3000 Unlimited, most of the Euro scrapers are Frankfurt ones

One of the best, and for sure the most underrated, Naples.

Naples' skyline is nice for a mid-rise skyline. Especially with Vesuvius in the background.

How about other Euro cities like Warsaw and Moscow? Don't they have impressive skylines as well?

La Defense's cluster seems to be more densely packed together than Frankfurt, while emerging Eastern Bloc cities such as Moscow and Warsaw are a bit more sparse, and with time, will fill in the gaps.
