I think Istanbul exceeded it's hype. I think it's a much more enjoyable city than Rome in my opinion.

Budapest, Munich, and Amsterdam were really cool as well.

Good one, Istanbul is fantastic!!!
Milan was a good surprise to me as people often referred to it as a boring "business" city.

Although there is no hype over Palermo, it vastly exceeded my expectation. And I enjoyed it more than Rome.

I will still put Milan, Brussels, Frankfurt together as those very famous yet boring business cities.

First visits and first impressions only. Since some cities used to live up to the hype, but overtime, I feel they have fallen. San Francisco is an example of that.

Having said that:

San Francisco
NYC
London
Paris
Montreal
Florence
Amsterdam
Venice

Cities that I went to without really knowing what to expect but I loved are :

Lyon
Innsbruck
Edinburgh
Barcelona

Cities that disappointed me:

Vienna
Milan
Honolulu

I did all those things. I went to the Martin Luther King memorial centre - highly recommended! Jogged every morning around Piedmont Park and dined at Inman & Buckhead. The city itself looked fine - I did enjoy myself but the energy was just really muted, no-one walks on the streets, there is no vibe to speak of but I suppose that's true of many US towns and cities. I wanted to get my crunk on lol (this was in the early 2000's).

Sometimes I wondered where all the people were.
