    I haven't been to that many big cities (I mean BIG), so I guess it's Berlin. It's really still unique, but it changed a lot since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
    Definitely worth visiting though.

    P.S.: Cologne is very nice too *hint, hint*

    Haven't been to all that many (and never been outside the USA), but my favorite city to visit is Chicago. Correction: Chicago in the summertime! It truly is the Windy City.

    Toronto is glad to have you, John. I've recently come back from 3-week vacation in Europe. Third time in London for me. Can't get enough of the place. Love all the history. The tube (subway) strikes around September 25th were a pain, but we got to commisserate with other Londoners who put up with it far more often than my wife and I had to endure.

    Belgium was a real surprise to me. Had an amazing time and I've come back with a new appreciation for good beer. The usual Canadian beers I've been drinking just can't compare to the stuff you can enjoy in Belgium. Mmmmmm, Roderbach.....

    In my limited travels I fell in love with Valetta in Malta! Don't know if it's a city - there are probably cities in the US that are bigger than all of Malta!


    I also have a great desire to visit more of Germany (I've only spent time in Flensburg - I love Flensburger!)when I get the chance! JMX - when that time comes, I just might come visit you!:)

    Rome has such great monuments of course!But I don't dig the city:it's untidy;those monuments are not brought out properly.For example:I woludn't allow the cars to run so near to the colosseum.

    Don't know if it's technically a city, but my favorite would be Stresa, Italy. That is one of the most quaint and beautiful places I've ever visited. The lake (Lago Maggiore) surrounded by the mountains (Mottarone) makes for a wonderous experience.

    I guess second would be Paris. That was a surprise to me, I wasn't exactly looking forward to it due to all the hype, but man did I enjoy myself! :D

    And I can't deny my own state. Austin has to be my favorite domestic city. The only problem is that it is underequipped to handle the amount of people that live there. Traffic is a nightmare. Beautiful city though, lots of small hills and pretty buildings. And so much to do there! 6th Street is always alive with music and people, it can be quite an experience sometimes.
