Hi everyone! In light of all the worst/nicest places to live threads, I thought I would start a thread on the nicest places you have been. The rules are that you must have been to the place. Also, please no fights over what is nice and what is not, this is all your opinions. On my list I would include...
Vancouver: I know I live really close, but I have to say that Vancouver is honestly the nicest place I have ever been. It is on the water, has amazing views of mountains and everyone is very friendly. It is also not overly big.
Cortona (Italy) Beautiful little hill town in central Italy. One of the most beautiful, peaceful places I have been. Amazing panoramic views too.
Rome Aside from all the priceless works of art and historical sites, I like how fast paced everything is. The weather is a big plus too.
P.S. I know this has probably been discussed before in the past, but not in a while so lets do it again.

Hard to pick just one, but I guess my all time favouritest ever place is Rome - 3000 years of history underfoot, overlaid with the most amazingly superficial hyperactivity that takes it all completely for granted - it's an amazing mix.
And Sydney of course - my favourite place to live.
Favourite island - Bora Bora, or Komodo - to close to call

Bora Bora - amazingly beautiful and small. Clearest water!
Venice - OK, its crowded and sometimes smells, but it is magical.
Hong Kong - same reasons as above
Vancouver - same reasons as the other posters
Polperro - beautiful south of England seaside town
Edinburgh - majestic and beautiful city
Hobart - but too cold to live there
Perth - but I already live there
And quite a few others. Oh, and Rochester, of course, because - um, well, err, um, - damn, I've had enough to drink for one night lol.

Venice, Venice and...oh I dunno...Venice?!
OK, so I went there in late November when it didn't smell, most of the tourists were at home getting ready for Christmas and the weather was just perfect (clear, crisp days), but I would go back there tomorrow if I could get the day off work!
