For me, the two most beautiful cities in the world are Atlanta and Savannah, with Charleston running a close third. Savannah also has some gorgeous Atlantic beaches. But no beaches compare with those of the Florida Panhandle (surprise, it's where I live...)

For me it is Vancouver or Rio de Janeiro.
Haven't been to CapeTown yet but I assume that's a very, very beautiful city !!

They say that there are four really attactive modern cities in the world

Cape Town
San Francisco
Vancouver
Sydney

Haven't done Sydney (yet - going in Nov), and I would be hard pushed to decide on the other three, they are all stunning.

For a bit of histoty I'd go for Rome.

In terms of physical beauty, including surroundings, etc., I don't think there is any city on earth that can compare to Rio De Janerio.

Might I interject some rather late rules in this game? If you're going to be subjective (which you have to be in this category), at least include some "whys" as to your particular choice!

My Top Five and Why

1. SYDNEY (beaches, sunshine, the harbour etc etc)
2. VANCOUVER (mountains, the sea, the beaches)
3. HELSINKI (magic, the architecture, the ocean)
4. ZURICH (the big small city, gorgeous!)
5. PRAGUE (the romance, the architecture, the history-lovely!)

I forgot to say Prague.......it is the most stunning city you can ever go to. A huge castle looks down on you, the houses are all old, trams are everywhere....it's just fantastic! I also think Rio is pretty funky, and Shanghai as well.

Paris (Architecture, Atmosphere, Style)
Stockholm (Weather (summer), atmosphere, people)
Copenhagen (see Stockholm)
Austin (Weather, beauty, babes, music, nature)

Going to Rio in November so it may be added to the list then.

1) San Francisco (for the view on the bay)
2) New York City (for the mix of people, that's what makes it so beautiful)
3) Paris (for architecture)

San Francisco- very beautiful city always something new to discover everytime I go back. Plus midnight flights back to Dallas so I can maximize my time there!!

I have also heard CCS is a beautiful city. I also heard it is very dangerous. Is it, or a person just has to be careful like anywhere else?

I also would like information on PMO. I have heard Sicily is very dangerous as well.

I find that the view FROM Victoria harbour in at the city og Hong Kong is pretty un matchable. You can see the contrast of old housing blocks and new, tall skyscapers. right behind the buildings are mountains covered with trees. The way that the buildings are packed so densely is so amazing. I think Hong kong is very beautiful.

Out of all my travels I have to say...Heidelberg, Germany. I'm sure many of you have not heard of this city so I will describe it.

Heidelberg is a small city about a 90 minute trainride south of Frankfurt. It is tucked in a small valley, with the Necker River running through the centre. The modern side of the city is off the the western end, with taller, more modern buildings, the trainstation, etc. In the city centre there are historic buildings, a pedestrian mall, gasthauses, platz (squares), and one of Germany's oldest learning centres, the University of Heidelberg. On the mountain that rises out of the city is the "Schloß" or castle, of which name escapes me. You can can take a cable railway to the top of the mountain, some 300 metres above the Necker River, and get a panaramic view of the region.

In all, Heidelberg is a very beautiful city.

Larger cities however would go like this:
1. Amsterdam
2. London
3. Paris

Of the cities I've lived in or traveled to, I think for certain the most spectacular and beautiful is St. Petersburg, Russia. It was built as a "window to Europe" by Peter the Great, and architects from all over the world were invited to participate in the design and construction of the many palaces, cathedrals and other buildings there.

I lived in St. Petersburg for four and one-half years, and though I've been to many other cities - London, Paris, Florence, Stockholm, Helsinki, Brussels, Lucerne, San Francisco, Washington, DC and others...St. Petersburg far outranks them all in terms of sheer beauty.

Venice. It is mindblowing - especially in Spring or Autumn when you can have it all to yourself and even the Piazza San Marco returns to something like relaxing.

Toronto Ontario Canada
Hamilton Ontario Canada

Toronto is just cool

Hamilton is gorgeos its just southwest of toronto on the bend of lake ontario It all depends on where you see it from though of your on the burlinton skyway it looks terrible but if you come down the escarpment from the southwest its beautiful I suggest if your ever in the area to take a visit.

I've been to many places all across the world .... and I have to say there is no other place like SYDNEY - Australia.

It's beautiful, alive, safe, sunny, unique and more ....

If i wanna swim i walk down to the beach ... with crystal clear water ... if i have had enought of the city life i drive for an hour and arrive somewhere in the middle of nowhere .... 320 days of sunshine a year .... today was a awesome winter day with 19 degress Celsius and not one cloud in the sky !!!
What more do you want .....

SKYTEAM: Just a reminder, this are peoples own opinions, and if people want to say a South African shantytown is the most beautiful place, than they can. No offence, but who are you to say what's beautiful and what's not.

BUT, I think SLC Rulz!!!
Ok, ok, so I've never been to San Fran or the BIG hitters here, but of the big cities I've been to (Seattle, Las Vegas, Salt Lake), Salt Lake City wins. Las Vagas was VERY impressive, or at least I think it was, I went there when I was 5! I went ot SEA when I was ten. Sorry, too big for my taste, BUT the cascades (especailly Mt. Ranier) really enhance the city.
Despite, though, SLC STILL RULZ!
Let me explain, I love lots of mountains, especially high mountains. I love beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I like clean air. I love the desert and lush forests, and especially lots of friendly people who aren't so self centeres they can't say hello. Need I say more? SLC has all this. Ahhhhhhh.....paradise!
