What's the problem? What's so unfair? This thread is perfectly logical, there are obviously some cities with more "history" than others - try using a bit of common sense. It's funny how so many people are choosing Rome and Cairo, isn't it...

Just for a laugh: Tuzla (Bosnia-Herzegovina), one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe, unofficially the oldest.




Beyond that - Jerusalem, Istanbul.

MADURAI



One of South India's great temple towns, Madurai is synonymous with the celebrated Meenakshi Temple. Situated on the banks of river Vaigai, Madurai has a rich cultural heritage passed on from the great Tamil era more than 2500 years old. Madurai was an important cultural and commercial centre even as early as 550 AD

This is one of the ancient planned city , The Pandyan King Kulasekarar built a great temple and created a lotus shaped city around the temple

It's very difficult to choose just three historical city out of so many, but I think these three are hard to dispute in the way that they symbolize history and culture for the civilizations they represents:

Athens
Rome
Xi'an

runners up:

Cairo

Istanbul

In terms of longer history: Athens, Rome, Xi'an, each cities are either well over 2500 years or close to the 3000 mark.

In terms of cultural impact in their distinct parts of the continent: Istanbul, Rome (replacement of Athens), Xi'an.

Remember, there are many other important historical cities in the world, and every countries/civilization has cities that are uniquely important to them: Jerusalem for Israel, Kyoto for Japan, Luoyang for China, Paris for France etc... and they are all great cities.
