I'd probably go with Paris since I've only been in the city for two days as part of a longer trip. I love London and it's great for visiting but I've been there multiple times at this point. I've been Rome and it was underwhelming once you leave the area around the Forum and the Vatican. I visited Florence that same trip and it was so charming and pleasant it kind of spoiled Rome for me.

Prague and Edinburgh are my favorite European cities, but to each their own.

I can't believe anyone would rank London first.

Rome's a bit underwhelming and Pairisians are rude...what's there to be surprised about?

Londoners were always much ruder to me than Parisians. The only person in Paris who was ever rude to me was a fat Brit who almost pushed me in front of the metro because he couldn't mind his girth.

Yeah, on my two visits the whole “Parisians are rude” BS proved to be quite the urban legend.  Also, Rome underwhelming??  Kay.
Agreed. They're only rude to rude Americans who deserve it. Also, Rome is incredible as a collection of historical sights, but a bit underwhelming as a city. London and Paris are the political, cultural, and financial hubs of their countries, whereas Milan owns the latter two categories in Italy, making Rome a bit run down and ironically, a bit provincial.

Rome is literally falling apart. I've also never seen a place so predatory to tourists, regardless of whether they deserve it). I loved my time there and the food, history, and art is incredible, and Trastevere is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Europe, but the infrastructure needs to be revamped.

Yeah this. Florence is much better. What makes Rome worth visiting are the Roman ruins and the Vatican, but otherwise the city isn't that great, Italy definitely has much better.

Mine are Munich and Lyon.
