I think expectations have all to do with it. Lucca, not on the beaten path for many travelers was lovely. Meanwhile, Rome and Florence had such great expectations to fill, they mostly fulfilled them but still.

I don't have a favorite, but Vienna is the full package and probably the 'grandest' city in Europe.

This thread is just funny to me... People on here are so clueless.

The thread was pointless, to begin with.

Well you sound like quite the troll as you not only failed to answer the question but insulted those that did as well as the OP's question. Why post if all you're going to do is insult everyone?

My favorite city is ironically, Paris but then it's really the only European city i've visited although if I ever encountered someone like you there it probably wouldn't be

^ Hé hé, I knew I would get replies like this when I wrote the comment, but it doesn't matter.

You're a just bit a harsh by your judgement when you don't know the person you talk about.
As far as I go, I actually always act civilized and even kind to tourists here.
Cause you know, it's important for us to be friendly, make sure they enjoy their stay and feel good here... Not only because they spend their money that's most often hard to earn over the place, but also because the mere fact that they spend some of their time to visit our city is very nice of them. I couldn't tell whether we deserve it or not, but it is like a privilege given to us, so to say.
That's the way I see it and I guess more and more get aware of it in this COVID time. Foreign tourists are badly missed here. From now on, people who complain about them (which is idiotic and unfair) might think twice before doing so.

Now, why is this thread nonsensical to me? Because it's impossible to say what town would be the nicest, most beautiful or whatever in Europe. They are just different.
It's like people constantly discussing London vs Paris. I've always been said that both towns are actually quite different by those who know London well enough, each with their own good traits and flaws.

You might enjoy some nice experience anywhere anyway. Suppose you'd go to Warsaw, Poland and madly fall in love with a woman over there, by an accident. Well, Varsaw, Poland would then turn out to be your favorite place on Earth.
That's it.

But the thread asks: What is your favorite? Favorite is by definition subjective and needs no logical or even reasonable explanation.

To me, Edinburgh is a phantasm. The color of the stone on the hill, the classical part of the city, the castle, the dramatic landscape, and so much history. Being from Québec, I feel I have some roots over there. The Scottish have had a big influence here. Personally from Irish ancestry, but there is a feeling, going back to Mary Stuart, maybe. (My ancestry is also mostly French)

However, I agree with Mousquet, there is no answer to that question.������

Wait, everybody in this world wants and needs logics, rationalism, reason and objectiveness to be reassured and comforted.
Saying otherwise has always taken the people to darkness.
People just need merciless accurate sciences and God, which are actually the same.

I mean, who gives a fuck about your personal favorite thing and worries? No one does. I believe even the Lord Himself barely does, cause He wants you stronger than that. You know, Christ just looks at you and says - come on, you can do better than that.
They've all got their favorite things and own issues, hardly ever the same as yours.

Again, that's why this kind of conversations is pointless. The OP just desperately hoped London would come 1st on here, then gave up on this site. Who the hell is the troll?

I'll tell you what, I could invade this forum with thousands of pictures like these then ask them all in a nasty grin - so, what the heck is the prettiest / grandest city in Europe?
But I won't. It'd be too easy, lazy and evil.

Deal with this whole thing.

Empty cavity is not well-travelled. Not exactly the surprise of the century.

Unimaginably beautiful.
