The world's greatest city? Union Square, Tokyo. World's Greatest Cities book cover

A panel of Time Out experts selected 75 cities to celebrate in the book 'The World's Greatest Cities' according to six criteria: Architecture, Arts & Culture, Buzz, Food & Drink, Quality of Life and World Status. In conjunction with our local correspondents, the panel then awarded the cities scores in each category and totalled them up for an overall ranking. The results are both fascinating and often surprising.
But now we want to know, which city, or cities, do you consider to be the greatest in the world and why?
