I'd like to venture out and see the Italian coast, it looks beautiful and of course Milan is on my bucket list. Wish I went there instead but I was 12 and didn't really have an option over a decade ago. Milan seems more of my style.

As for food, not so much into it but I haven't tried any that are spicy yet. Chili peppers. Sounds intriguing. Being a spice crazed person, I go out of my way for this stuff. How's northern Italy on the food front?

I'm a picky person. I see one thing wrong to my standards and the thing becomes unbearable for me. I'm tough to be around, I like nice, neat, organized, clean, sanitized, and have a major issues with things being or feeling out of place. Open doors (unnecessarily) in hallways bug me, crooked picture frames bug me, a desk with paper uneven and floating around bug me, pens in pen holders with half tip down and half tip facing up bug me. I'm tough to impress, I don't close the doors to visiting anywhere at least once and I give everywhere a shot but the issues arise when the question of "can you see yourself coming back here again?" comes up.

Athens has better air quality and the people tend to be friendlier. They tie with history. I could spend a month in Rome and still not see/do it all. Athens would take a week, tops. In my opinion the food in Rome is better, the water is the best on earth. Athens is a bit less expensive overall. Rome is more walkable. Athens overall feels safer, not as many pickpockets. They tie for mass transit.

I have been to both Rome and Taipei but not Boston. However, if I had to compare cities, I would pick Rome over Paris (Paris should have been on the list). I would pick Hong Kong over Taipei (Hong Kong is not on the list and is more beautiful). I would pick Vancouver B.C. over Boston because I can't think of any American city that is really beautiful and I haven't seen any picture of Boston showing any beauty.
So, I had to pick Rome because of it's beauty and historic significance.

I'd say Boston city is nicer than Vancouver city, it has prettier architecture (Vancouver is a bit new and sterile). It's natural surrounds are also quite pretty if not as spectacular as Van.
