Don't be too harsh Ariete, there are countless threads in these forums that make no sense...
This one, although admittedly very daft, is not among the worst...

By the way, my favourite "secondary" city is Lahti.

Lol, Ariete is right. Milan is Italy's alpha city and one of the wealthiest, and has by far the biggest metro. In fact, it has one of Europe's largest economies. Overlooked as a tourist destination compared to Rome, maybe, but not in any other aspect.

Why Liverpool anyway? It isn't the UK's secondary city, if such a thing exists.

Hah! Didn't see that coming!

Ok, maybe it's not the worst thread, but having the need to explain what he meant with the thread is a bad sign. And the options... two cities from Canada and Australia, but none from Northern Europe, Brazil, Spain, Egypt, India... and so on.

*yawn* Like I said I couldn't list every 2nd or 3rd largest city in the world. Quit being so uptight. And I only 'explained' because you provoked me.

Rome is 'larger' than Venice and Milan, population wise. Who talked geographical size here? Yeah, I don't think it was me. You fail for jumping into ignorant and rather hasty conclusions. Get over it please (or find another thread to haunt)...

Where's Barcelona? St. Petersburg? Hamburg? Katowice? Porto? Manchester? Gothenburg? Rotterdam? Rio de Janeiro?
Um, this is a thread. Feel free to add them yourself. I listed mine. You list yours...*sigh*

Sorry, this poll does not make sense to me. This is just a bunch of random cities, nothing "secondary" there

Look, I won't say anything anymore (I repeated myself so many times now)...

I think the title of this thread should've been like this - "Underrated or Overlooked Cities" or "Best Cities That Aren't As Popular". I shouldn't have made a poll, because I think the poll caused all the 'controversy' here.

To make everything clearer to the confused folks in here: Forgot the poll and the thread title, POST CITIES THAT ARE UNDERRATED, OR CITIES THAT ARE OVERLOOKED BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE SHADOW OF (NEARBY) LARGER, POPULAR CITIES THAT WE ALL KNOW ABOUT. Now I hope this doesn't sound confusing or 'daft' to anyone...

I just consider anywhere with a population over about a million 'big', even if it is nothing on the scale of the 20+ million in Mexico City or NYC, for example. It would've been cool if you meant something like in the population range of 100,000-500,000 people. No one really makes threads about those.

i.e. Graz, Austria
Victoria, Canada
Girona, Spain
Oaxaca (de Juarez), Mexico

Nacogdoches

Nacogdoches is the county seat of Nacogdoches County, Texas. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, this tiny town has a population of just over 32,000. Nacogdoches has the unique distinction of being not only a small city in a big state, but of being the oldest city in the entire state.

Originally a Spanish settlement used mainly by missionaries to the Native American people in the area, Nacogdoches eventually blended its Spanish heritage with the well-known friendly hospitality of the southern United States to make it a town that is a cut above the average. You’ll find plenty to see and do here.
