100 Great Cities of the World is your ideal reference to the world's exotic, historic and modern cities. Superb photographs and descriptions of each city are spiced with bite-size chunks of the history, events and personalities that have shaped them. For each location, a fact box sheds light on aspects you might never have considered, advising where you would find the world's largest sapphire, the only fortified city in North America, and a floral clock made up of 2,000 plants. Cities are listed by continent: in turn, Europe, Australasia and Asia, Africa and the Mid-East, and the Americas. Regional locator maps pin point the selected cities for each of the groups and full-colour photographs show each metropolis at its best. So, whether you're planning your own grand tour, or feeding your curiosity for the new and exotic, the historic and the beautiful, 100 Great Cities is your ideal reference and companion.
