Cities that exceeded and failed to meet your expectations

Jump to last reply

So which places exceeded your expectation and which failed to meet your expectations

Exceeded my expectations
- Venice
It's hard to beat the first impression. I walked out of the train station greeted by the beautiful Baroque church (I can't remember its name). Then I looked, hey no cars, no streets. When they said, there's no road in Venice, they weren't kidding. After that, I was all giddy in Venice. I was so eager to explore every corner and every nook of Venice. The hidden churches, the little bridges, the little squares, etc. I spent hours in the vaporetto, the one that goes circling the city.
St. Mark square and St. Mark Basilica also didn't fail to impress, the mosaic inside the church is just amazing. Palazzo Ducale, the entire building is covered with masterpiece paintings. Sitting by the lagoon watching the sunset is just wonderful. At night, the canal get so dark and so quiet, it's eerie and yet so surreal

Venice is absolutely the most beautiful place on earth.

Other:
- Salzburg
- Siena

Failed to meet my expectations
- Paris
I arrived with high expectation. I left with a disappointment. I can't help to think that the city is a bit overrated. Every single major attraction is crowded and lined-up with tourists, billions of them. Outside of the major attractions, the city is not that much better than other major city. Nothing really sticks out in my mind

Other:
- Zurich, expensive and there's really nothing to see
