After a very strong showing last week in the Best City To Visit Travel Tournament Sweet 16, the remaining Elite 8 are all European cities. (Istanbul is technically in Europe and Asia, but close enough.) New York put up a good fight against London and Paris continues to dominate but this week things get interesting. Vote for your favorite cities – Istanbul vs. Barcelona, Amsterdam vs. Venice, and two other match ups that will be decided this week. Voting ends this Friday March 19th at 12 noon US EST.

Keep going Istanbul!!!
…right on Barcelona’s tail…
Zermatt… the little city that could!!
It’s certainly the underdog this tournament and ahead of London at the moment. Cinderella team in the Final Four??
Wow… we might need to invoke the mercy rule on a couple of these contests here…
Who knew you were so big in Switzerland, Anil??
That’s 68 more Zermottians than I ever knew read my site 😛
I think Paris, Istanbul and London should move on. The tough one is Venice vs Amsterdam. Call it Boats vs Bikes. I guess I’ll go with the bikes.
Lots of boats in Amsterdam too. Guess it’s best of both worlds.
Aaahhh, Sydney lucked out. I’ll put in a cheer for Paris and Amsterdam for the final.
Unfortunately no repeat this year :/
This has been a very interesting competition- some of the cities which I thought would make it to this round are no longer in existence!!
I didn’t think there would only be European teams by this point, I thought the US would have a strong showing.
…has some ground to cover but based on the comments has a lot of support 🙂
Bummer. I’m out of the tourney. 🙁
But I voted again anyway.
Too bad, I like Stockholm 🙁 but I appreciate you continuing to participate!
Zermatt? Dubrovnik? Ubud? One thing this contest has done is to get me on Wikipedia to find out more about some of the cities I never heard of. Very cool.
The diversity of the original group was great. Last year it was Negril, Jamaica that made it to the final and made me very curious.
