I'd say Rome in terms of historic importance and historic preservation.

When it comes to skyscrapers, easily New York with Chicago second.

Top of my head:

Makkah, Baghdad, Jerusalem, Damaskus and the ancient cities in Iraq (Cradle of Civilization) and Egypt.

In Europe Paris, Rome, Athens and Florence.

Ephesus doesnt belong to this list. It was a great city in antiquity, but its impact to world's history has nothing to do with Athens, Istanbul and Rome. It is in the same league with other ancient greek cities, like Corinth, Pella, Syrracoussae, Olynthus, Delos, etc. etc., full of monuments, very ancient and important, but without such global impact.

Amsterdam has the most historic atmosphere. Unless the other nominees Amsterdam is not a museum but a vibrant city. Everyone likes this place.

You do know that both Nara and Kyoto were modelled after the Chinese Capitals Chang'an (today's Xi'an) and Luoyang, do you? and both were in much smaller scales when compared to the mighty Chang'an and Luoyang.


Wikipedia Sources:


About Kyoto:
Quote:
...The new city, Heian-kyō (平安京, "tranquility and peace capital"), a scaled replica of the then Tang capital Chang'an, became the seat of Japan's imperial court in 794, beginning the Heian period of Japanese history...

The original city was arranged in accordance with traditional Chinese feng shui following the model of the ancient Chinese capital of Chang'an (present-day Xi'an).


About Nara:
Quote:
...Ancient capitals of Japan were built on the land of Nara, namely Asuka-kyō, Fujiwara-kyō (694–710) and Heijō-kyō (most of 710–784). The capital cities of Fujiwara and Heijō are believed to have been modeled after Chinese capitals at the time, incorporating grid layout patterns. The royal court also established relations with Sui and then Tang Dynasty China and sent students to the Middle Kingdom to learn high civilization...

...The Nara court aggressively imported Chinese civilization by sending diplomatic envoys known as kentōshi to the Tang court every twenty years. Many Japanese students, both lay and Buddhist priests, studied in Chang'an and Luoyang...

Chang'an (known as Xi'an today) reached the population of 1 million around about 700 AD according to Wikipedia. It was the largest city in the World from 600 AD to 900 AD.

And it was the Eastern Terminal of the Silk Road at that time.
