Cape Town voted 2023 ‘The Greatest City on Earth’ by The Telegraph Readers

Yesterday we reported that South Africa was named by The Telegraph as the 2023 World’s Best Holiday Destination. Now it has been revealed that the UK publication has named Cape Town as The Greatest City on Earth’.

A total of about 27000 The Telegraph readers participated in the survey. The 2023 Top 10 Cities in the World are the following:

1. Cape Town

2. Venice

3. Seville

4. Vancouver

5. Rome

6. Florence

7. Rio de Janeiro

8. Sydney

9. Kyoto

10. Dubrovnik

Cape Town is described as ‘a remarkable city gleaming at the continent’s edge’. It is praised for its location at the foot of Table Mountain, its beaches, the scenery of the Cape Peninsula, and the nearby Winelands and wine regions. The favourable exchange rate, the quality restaurants and hotels, and its long summer days are further Cape Town assets.

Cape Town has topped the Greatest City in the World list in the past ten years, excluding 2020 and 2021 due to Covid.

Additional points went to cities with a symphony orchestra, and a metro system.
