1. ROME - no other city in the world can beat Rome's cultural weight.
It has so many iconic places like: Collosseum, Palatine, Panthenon
Vatican, Latheran, Piazza Venezia, Spanish Steps, di Trevi fountain,
Villa Borghese, Via Veneto, etc. At the same time the city is chic and its setting is simply beautiful.

2. PARIS - rich in splendid architecture and emanating unbeaten charm.
3. PRAGUE - it doesn't have historic and cultural importance of the previous two, but deserves the 3rd place in this beauty contest.

Out of the cities i've been to I would say my favorites in terms of beautiful buildings and streetscapes are Bruges, Prague and London. But there's so many cities that it's not possible to say 3 are best as there's so many hidden corners of a city that you might miss when visiting and also so many ugly buildings and areas that can easily taint your visit.

I've never been, but Istanbul looks very beautiful and would be in my top 3 i'm sure, if i'd visited it.
