Two cool cities not often on the highest ranks of European cool cities are Lisbon and Porto. But they are definitely cool now and underrated/

Not had the pleasure of Porto yet but Lisbon completely blew away my preconceptions of the city. An amazing place to visit at the very least

I think these are good lists for brand image, not so much for cultural cool. The two are not synonymous, the most obvious example of a discrepancy between the two being Los Angeles in the 1980s.

As a reminder, the topic of the thread is which city is the best example of this today, not in 1910 or 1920.

For 2010s Dubai appears to be a better candidate...
