Vienna in Austria is the second most-searched city, nabbing number one spot in 15 countries, including Italy, Germany, and the US.
Sharing bronze is New York City and Paris (the top searches in eight countries each) closely followed by Budapest (top in six countries); Madrid and Prague (joint fifth and topping three countries); and Brussels and Tokyo (joint sixth with two top searches).
Completing the global ranking in joint seventh are three German cities - Berlin, Munich and Nuremberg. Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Strasbourg all make top searches in one country each.
