    Arrow Best cities to visit in Europe

    Based on my experience of travelling and living around Europe, I would like to make a list the the best cities by category, rating them respectively 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A and 3B. 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
