Evora is definitely a historic city. Not the more but a beautiful historic city, World Heritage Site.
Póvoa de Varzim is a balnear city near Oporto in Northern Portugal

Savannah

While it's not as old and fancy as all of your old fancy Euro-towns but Savannah, Georgia is the most historic city.

Well, this depends on history. Boston, Massachusetts could be the most historic because it is where the Boston Tea Party happened, which was one of the main events leading to the Revolutionary War. But, Rome was the capital of a massive empire, and is also the capital for 1 billion Catholics. Then there's the village to the north of Greece where Alexander the Great was born, the greatest empire of all. I'm gonna say London. It has ties going all the way back to Londinium, the Roman provincial capital of Britannia, all the way up to WWII.

Dude, Boston didn't even exist 400 years ago. It wouldn't even make a top 100 list.

No, this is what I'm trying to say. History is a chain reaction: because of Boston in part, the Revolutionary War started. That led to America becoming a nation, which led to all sorts of ripples throughout the world. Industrial Revolution, Great Depression, etc. Besides, it's my opinion. Opinions can't be wrong. They can just be not right to another person of a differing view.

America becoming a nation led to the Industrial Revolution?

Anyway, the winner is ... ROME!

Really the most historic cities in the world are Rome, Istanbul, Jerusalem, of course there are much more, but not as powerful as these three ones.

There's a list of cities that were more historically important than Rome. The other two are pretty important.

Adding on to the list is Xian Yang 咸阳, China. This is a former capital city that witnessed the birth of a race called the "Chinese".

Rome is by far the most historic european city, and probably the most historic city in the world. Rome is called the Eternal city for having signs and monuments of every ages. In Rome there is the biggest and most important archeological urban area of the world, including Colosseum, the Constantine Arch, the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill, the Imperial Forums, and many other monuments like Pantheon, the Trajan's Markets, the Marcellus Theatre, St. Angel Castle and so on.
