    Italian daily La Stampa (Turin) proposes its lectors to discover 10 lesser-known (down to "where-the Hell-is it"...) cities in Europe:

    Amiens (FR), Battle (GB), Burg Satzvey (GER), Luxembourg (LUX), Haarlem (HOL), Klaipèda (LIT), La Coruña (SP), Lancut (PL), Olomouc (CZ) and Tartu (EST).

    Some of these destinations are already covered by Eupedia:

    - Amiens (not that good except the cathedral)
    - Battle (nothing special really)
    - Luxembourg (must-see)
    - Haarlem (outstanding)

    Outside of Paris, the cities of the French rivera like Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Antibes are Beautiful. You may also apperciate cities of Alsace (near the German border) like Strasbourg and Colmar but also small villages like Riquewihr and Ribeauvillé (famous for the Wines and food). If you go to Paris, Normandy is not too far. The coast is famous for its landscape and the D-Day beaches. Near the border with Brittany, the Mount Saint Michel is also wonderful to visit.


    For the luxurious hotel you may find them in the French riviera, in Cannes (Carlton, Hilton, Martinez) and Nice (Negresco).
    There are also luxurious Houses on the coast and in the Hinterland (Saint Paul, Vence...).

    A city founded in year 1 and constantly inhabited is Istambul. Orient and Ocident clash right there. Ancient ruins, new ruins, man made disasters, god made disasters, beautifull buidings, ugly buildings, white people, black people, yellow pepole are all there. Its a small microcosmos. For people like me, who always check the finances, thats the city to visit. One sees the world in one shot. Fot people with limitlees money resources is good to see all the above mentioned cities.

    I am very surprised that you would need a week to see all the sights in Munich. After two days I didn't know what to do. Please don't count excursions from Munich to the rest of Bavaria. That would completely offset the ranking.

    Likewise, Sydney can be seen in a two or three days. It doesn't deserve one or two weeks (unless you got lost walking around the suburbs ).

    On the other hand, 3 days in Florence is definitely not enough to see all the important sights. It deserves at least a full week, and in my opinion longer than Venice, because Venice has very few museums or places that can be visited inside.

    Cortina D'Ampezzo is a ski resort, so there are no sight per se. Same for Surfer's Paradise (I hated that place, btw).

    If you're in Hungary you should definitely visit the city of Győr (NW-Hungary) for a one day trip. It has some beautiful baroque buildings and a marvelous atmosphere. Also the Archabbey of Panonhalma is only a half an hour drive from Győr. It's part of the UNESCO World Heritage!

    I think I like to live in London for the amazing party life in there. The scenery is also good with all the majestic pieces all over.

    Budapest has better architecture and more hospitable people than Prague or Vienna.

    5 Days would not be enough to see all in Istanbul. I have been there many times yet many places i have not seen.

    Ofc, depends on what you want to see...

Note that I have listed Nordic countries or Ireland, and have only been to Praha and Budapest in Eastern Europe. Basically, the numeral ranking is about the overall beauty/quality, while the letters refer to the length of stay to fully enjoy the city (A the longest, C the shortest).

    1A : outstanding cities with enough sights for 1 to 2 weeks

    London
    Rome
    Florence
    Paris

    1B : same as 1A, but with sights for less than 1 week (usually 2 or 3 days)

    Salamaca
    Seville
    Venice
    Nice
    Oxford
    Cambridge
    Praha
    Vienna
    Istanbul

    1C : same as 1B, but with sights for just one day

    Cordoba
    Caceres
    Evora
    Pontevedra
    Santiago de Compostela
    Carcasonne
    Monaco
    Pisa
    Lucca
    San Gimignano
    Siena
    Lille
    Luxembourg
    Bruges
    Maastricht
    Bath
    York

    2A : very good destinations with sightseeing for several days, but less impressive overall than those ranked 1A.

    Brussels
    Amsterdam
    Copenhagen
    Stockholm
    Barcelona
    Madrid
    Lisboa
    Budapest
    Athens

    2B : Same as 2A, but with sights that can be covered in 1 day

    Granada
    Merida
    Milano
    Marseille
    Nimes
    Avignon
    Montpellier
    Antwerp
    Namur
    Delft
    Leiden
    Brighton
    Stratford-upon-Avon

    3A : Less beautiful cities with enough exceptional attractions for several days

    Berlin

    3B : same as 3A but with sights that can be covered in 1 day

    Bristol
    Portsmouth
    Salisbury
    Canterbury
    Munich
    Frankfurt
    Regensburg
    Bonn
    Trier
    Aachen
    Ghent
    Gouda
    Den Haag

    Congrats, Maciamo. One of the best selection I have ever found. Very accurated too.

    It would be good to meet up if you ever visit, and in a short distance around there are other great historical things to visit too that you will find very interesting :) The Valletta harbour was also the scene of a great battle (prior to the Turkish 4 month siege) in connection with the Sicilian Vespers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Malta

    I wasn't aware of the book. Had a look on amazon and it looks like a good read. Thank you for bringing the book to my attention

    Maciamo! It is the huge list that you shared. I know these all are stunning and alluring cities of the United Kingdom. I am a tourist but I did not visit them all. My most favorite cities are Venice and London and I have been there several times. I love the attractions of London and the atmosphere of the Venice. In the last week of this month I am going to visit the New York. I am very excited for this.
