Berlin would be the most exciting overall, with a great arty scene and is very bohemian, but Stockholm is by far my favourite, I'm going there this year and I cannot wait.

Rome all day long, I am a sucker for sun, history, food and football (Roma v Lazio being one of my favorites) so it fits the bill very nicely.

I have only been to Stockholm, but Berlin is the city I most want to visit of the other choices.

I find none of these cities attractive, the least unattractive in my book would be Berlin (but watch the winters up there!)

Milan. It has everything I want out of the choices. Night life, history, culture, food, fashion, scenery.

Plenty of people will disagree with that.

All 5 are attractive cities.

Just because you don’t like the weather and winter there is no excuse to have such negative opinions for those cities. So what if these cities get some clouds, cold, and mildness? Weather is such an overrated topic for a place so much of the time. Those 5 cities are still great places.

This is also true for the negative things you said about Netherlands, Switzerland, and Denmark...Those 3 are great countries, despite not having your favorite type of weather.

Berlin would be the most exciting overall, with a great arty scene and is very bohemian, but Stockholm is by far my favourite, I'm going there this year and I cannot wait.
Rome might win for architecture, but the other 4 cities seem to have great architecture too. It seems rather close to being a 5 way tie.

For Food/Dining scene, I think I prefer Berlin, and Stockholm because I like plenty of variety in foods and it seems to have more variety than Rome.

I like Italian food and it is one of my favorites. I also like Thai, Indian, Chinese, Malaysian, Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Japanese, Mexican, etc.

I thought Stockholm has the best music scene out of these 5 cities. Berlin would at least be a close second.

For museums, seems similar to the Architecture category with all 5 cities doing very well for this category too and being close to a 5 way tie.

I am kind of undecided how I would rank these 5 cities for most of those specific factors. However, I will make up my mind soon and then post those ranks up once I decide.
