It would be hard to find large cities without ANY highrises (12+ floor buildings). But such very important world city as Geneve has got very few - just 15 such buildings.

It depends on what you define as a skyscraper, i don´t think there are any cities without any skyscrapers at all.

According to Emporis, over 12 floors

Rome has 9

The Rome-data on Emporis is outdated and incomplete.Rome has a lot of highrises ,probably more than 100. I've mailed Emporis in the past with information and pictures but nothing changed. It's not that important however because most of those buildings are normal appartment blocks (lacking some beauty and architectural quality). But there are now some interesting modern projects ,they could at least mention those.
