Florence is the best city in the world, according to the Condé Nast Readers' Choice Awards.

Along with being the birthplace of the Renaissance, the city was praised for its history, art and architecture.

This year, more than 128,000 people rated their favourite cities in the world, excluding those in the US.

They say the best cities in the world after Florence are Budapest, Vienna, Sydney and Paris.

These are the 30 best cities in the world for travellers:

Budapest celebrated for having the best Art Nouveau architecture in Europe and Vienna was recognised as "artistic, exquisite and largely shaped by its musical and intellectual foundations".

London came 10th on the list, noted for its double-decker buses, iconic red phone booths and pub culture.

It's easy to see why, as the city is full of museums, parks and centuries worth of culture.
