Originally a small port on the coast of northern Africa (in modern-day Tunisia) established as a stop for Phoenician traders to resupply or repair their ships, Carthage grew to become the most powerful city in the Mediterranean before the rise of Rome. At the time of its glory around 300 BC it was the largest city in the world with a population of over half a million people.
Babylon is the most famous city of ancient Mesopotamia. Its ruins lie in modern Iraq fifty-nine miles (ninety-four kilometers) southwest of Baghdad. The city owes its fame (or infamy) to the many Biblical references and also to the fact that in 700 BC it was the largest city in the world with more than 100,000 residents.
For the biggest part of its modern history, Paris has always been a city of culture, fashion, and influence where millions of people (famous and otherwise) have chosen to live. Paris is also the city with the most tourists in the world, and with 32.3 million visitors in 2013, it was officially declared the world’s top tourist destination, measured by hotel occupancy. In 1684 and during the reign of Louis XIV, Paris became the world’s largest city with more than 540,000 citizens.
