The Greek capital city of Athens has jumped nineteen places in the Global Liveability Index 2022 to 73rd place.
Athens was placed 92nd last year, with the report noting COVID-19’s “heavy toll” on global liveability.
The index was released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and looks at more than 170 cities across the categories of stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
The Austrian capital, Vienna, topped the rankings for the first time since 2019. The Australian city of Melbourne came in 10th spot and tied with Osaka.
Adelaide, which was ranked second in last year’s index, has fallen to 30th, Perth has fallen 26 spots to 32nd and Brisbane has dropped 17 spots to 27th.
