The world’s Best Cities.
All in one place.

Best Cities is the home of Resonance Consultancy’s exclusive ranking of the world’s top urban destinations.

Our goal is to make Best Cities the most credible source of city performance in the eyes of visitors and residents alike.

Rooted in our exclusive research and updated with the latest city news, we help you to decide where to go and when. City tourism, after all, is booming. According to World Travel Monitor, city trips soared by 82% between 2007 and 2014 to reach 22% of all global holidays. These are massive shifts in preferences by global travelers. Best Cities aims to feed this new appetite for urban tourism with timely, robust tools and news to match travelers with their ideal city experiences.

Our ranking’s exclusive methodology quantifies and benchmarks the relative quality of place, reputation and competitive identity for global cities across multiple factors using core statistics and online ratings and reviews.

But don’t just take our rankings as gospel. The Your Best Cities Finder lets you pick your ideal cities based on interests and priorities. Once you surface your best cities, make sure you sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the places that matter to you.
