I'm not sure what I would say because my global travels are quite limited.

What would you all say?

What are your criteria for "real city"?

Monaco is very small at around 500 acres and is quite built up, with lots of luxury shops, restaurants and entertainment venues, including the Monte Carlo casino.

It's also home to an impressive harbour full of super yachts.

To put the size of Monte Carlo in to perspective, Central Park in NYC is 843-acres, and is significantly larger than Monaco.

Genova springs to mind. With only 500k people it’s bustling and has what feels like two distinct “downtowns”.

This is a hard one, I live in a town of around 120'000 people, its definitely NOT a city but it has bars, restaurants, museums, parks, 24 hour shopping, 24 hour transportation (including a large international airport!), colleges etc, pretty much what a city might have but in smaller quantities I guess. The main reason its a town and not a city is the fact that its only got around 120'000 inhabitants (though as a new town it grows around 10-15'000 every decade or so), but if the question is 'the smallest place in the world that feels like a city' then I guess the answer will be a town?
Unless of course your talking 'actual' small cities like for example Ely in Cambridgeshire which is a city of about 20'000, but of course that would be a city that probably DOESN'T feel anything like a city.

Monaco, easily. 38000 population and 2 square kilometers, but you could mistake it for a metro of 2 million of you were magically transported right in the center. There are places out there with 2 million that look less urban than the middle of Monte Carlo.
