TheCitiesofSevenHills Photo Rome was known as the original city built on seven hills, but did you know, there are cities all over the world that are built on seven hills? Why seven hills? I suppose it could relate to the book of Revelation which equates a woman to the city built on seven hills, supposedly she is a whore and the hills are the anti-christ. If that's the case, would you really want to follow suit and build your city on seven hills? Doubtful. In many cases, ancient texts decree that whosoever shall conquer the seven hills shall receive the keys to the city. That's a much more benign legend. Perhaps it has something to do with keeping a watchful eye on your enemy invaders? That makes sense. Let's go with that one.
For the most part, the information was garnered from Wikipedia and is accurate as of 2008. Have fun.

I liked your quiz but I'm a bit surprised at the statement that Prague is the most visited city on the continent. I heard Eurodisney is in Paris because Paris is the most visited. Also, check with people you know: when they visit Europe, do they always go to Prague (compared to Amsterdam, Venice, Paris)? I just wonder
