New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City bla bla bla bla...

...or tons of ugly skyscrapers, tons of dreary apartments, asphalt roads, steel towers, plastic or fiberglass monuments, routin, routin, routin and a classic illusion.

Where is history, where is uniqueness, where is human being???

Nonetheless, I prefer Paris, Rome, Istanbul, Florence, Venice, Vienne, Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Prague, Esfahan, London, Athens, St. Petersburg, Jerusalem or Baghdad of Arabian Nights. None of them is better or more unique than the others. Because each of them has an original signature.

New York and Rio... Peh!!! Modern times; modern lies...

Co-sign.

The term 'beauty' should've been defined a bit more. Urban/architectural beauty (Paris) or natural beauty that compliments the city (San Francisco)? Either way, if I had to choose for an overall beautiful city it would be one of those 2.

Certainly european cities (perhaps also northern africa and middle east):

1) ROMA - wonderful everywhere (but also the other italian cities Venezia, Firenze, Milano, Bologna, Torino, Napoli and the little ones... Italia is beautiful everywhere!);

2) Paris

3) Vienna, Praha, Madrid (it's difficult to decide)

Btw every city or town has got its own beauty and peculiarity

Bye

It's impossible for me to narrow my choice down to only three favourite cities but Jerusalem definitely takes top spot.

I AM going to have to vote for Paris and San Francisco. Too much hype about places like London, New York City, Roma, Sydney, Rio (def not!!-scary!!) and other places. I really really liked Paris and San Fran. My favourites=

1. Athens

2. Rome

3. Instanbul/Konstantinoupolis

For their mixed architecture, combination of new with old and mainly for their histrorical background

1. New York

2. Paris

3. London

For their external look, metropolitan style and economical strength
