Sydney scores spot on top 10 most beautiful cities list

A new study may settle the age-old argument every Aussie has an opinion on: which is better – Sydney or Melbourne?

Or at least, it’ll settle it until the next study that expresses an opinion on Aussie cities comes out.

Flight Network has released a list of the world’s 50 most beautiful cities, placing Sydney in the top 10.

The website asked more than 1,000 travel writers, travel bloggers and travel agencies from around the world who have seen the world up-close and personal to rank the most aesthetically pleasing cities.

In news that will surprise no one at all, Paris was ranked number one, followed by New York, London and Venice.

According to Flight Network, the list is the “most thoughtful and definitive list” that will “inspire travellers not only in 2019 but for years to come”.

So get ready to make some slight changes to your bucket list, because here’s the top ten:

1. Paris

2. New York

3. London

4. Venice 

5. Vancouver 

6. Barcelona

7. Capetown

8. San Francisco

9. Sydney

10. Rome
