I agree with Atoyenere--Heidelburg is fabulous, especially in the fall.

Also,

Soave, Italy.

I'm going to nominate Hammerfest - the northernmost city in the world. (I'll likely get a few arguments here - from Russia or Alaska, but come on, cities?)

For balance - in the southern hemisphere, I'll throw in Devonport, NZ as well. A perfect little village, 10 minutes by boat from big city action.

Oh, and Russell. Also NZ.

Great places...I loved Miyajima near Hiroshima in Japan. Not exactly a city but nice. There weren't many tourists when I went there.
I loved Chamonix in France too, but I think it would be full on in the winter when it is ski season.

Hobart, Tasmania....amazing city, buzzing with good possitive green energy, and gateway to some truly magical old growth and temperate rainforests.

Gdansk, Poland-very historic with excellent nightlife, this is true Poland.

Biarritz, France-gigantic waves, friendly locals, great basque food, and amazing drives along coast and mountains. Very beautiful!

I actually just finished the ranking of my "Top 50 Favorite Cities" in the world and posted them on my website.

You can read it here...
My Favorite Cities in the World
Even my least favorite places are included (hopefully that will not bring too many hate mails along my way)

Yes, I really, really like Montreal and Quebec City as many posts here recommend. They are my No. 2 destinations in the world. Bow

Two places that I loved were;

Brno in the Republic. Everyone goes to Prague when they visit the Czech Republic but when I went, I found Prague to be overrun by tourists. We decided to try somewhere else and landed in Brno. It was great and felt so authentic. It is also very close to Blansko and the Moravsky Kras which is this incredible park with a huge series of caves.

My other favorite was Kotor in Montenegro. What an interesting town...completely dead during the day and packed at night. We really had a lot of fun and the local people were all wonderful. Highly recommend going to Kotor and from what we heard, there is a lot to explore nearby; unfortunately were we only there for 2 days and couldn't keep going...

Venice - in the winter!

Most tourist visiting Venice in the Spring, Summer and Autumn. I went in December - yes it was cold, but without masses of tourists, you realise what a special and beautiful city Venice really is.

So my recommendation is to pack your wollies, take your umbrella and go to Venice in the off season. There are still a few tourist but not millons of them

oh and i agree with the poster who mentioned Salta. Scheduled a day, stayed a week. The other places that did this to me in South America were Sucre in Bolivia, Salvador in Brazil, Cartagena in Colombia and for some reason La Paz (must have been the thin air!)

lets get out of this country

At last, cheers soldier. I have saying how nice venice in winter is for ages. Much better than the summer and everywhere is open still. No crowds you can just wander around aimlessly in and out of museums without queueing, its sunny still and smells a lot less.

Elsewhere Koln is great for a quick break, especialy walking out of the station almost underneath the Dom, its like reverse vertago. Great beer to, comes in 0.2 ml glasses and gets you drunk quick if your not used to it.
