Not my favourite but can’t begrudge it number 1. Ran my only good marathon there, saw one of my best ever gigs (Liars in a random art gallery). Food surprisingly good.
Loved it when I went there, but it was my first visit to Spain and it turns out I just love Spain. Over-touristed, greatly preferred Valencia.
Obviously great. May have peaked in 2003.
Number one on my wishlist.
Meh. Don’t understand the hype. And yes I’ve been to that TimeOut market.
Sure, fine. Need to go back and see more.
Lived there for 7 years. So I’m biased. On a sunny day in May it’s unimaginably beautiful. Bring money.
(=) San Francisco
I visited 6 times in the early 2000s so I must like it. Probably ruined by tech-bros since then.
- (=) Venice
Not a real city, living museum, yadda yadda.
N/A. Suspect Ghent is better.
Incredible. The 11-15th best tourist attractions would shit all over the best of most cities.
A bit grim. Psychotic motorists. Can’t understand the language one bit. I liked it!
Only spent 24h there. Didn’t make much of an impression.
Number 1. Chaotic, crumbling, endlessly interesting.
- (=) Toronto
Fine. Watered down version of a big American city. Chicago does everything similar, better.
- (=) Oslo
Better than I expected. Bring lots of money.
- (=) Sarajevo
Not much to actually do, but fascintating.
- (=) Antwerp
N/A Suspect it’s better than Bruges.
- (=) Hong Kong
- (=) Prague
I have been to Prague.
- (=) Stockholm
