For me, how could it not be Athens?
The world capital of free thought and philosophy and a very high standard of living. Many of the most brilliant minds of the time gathered together in one city-state. Excellent.

Well, if I choose by heart I will chose Macedon because it was and is my family's homeland.

However, my scientific nature would make me choose Alexandria, Halicarnassos, Smyrne or Athens.

For me it is Mycenae because it is a beautiful, serene, and peaceful place and when I visited I felt connected.

Sparta, I think it would be really cool plus I come from a place nearby called Messenia

Sparta. A truly unique society and the progenitor of western, representative-democracy.

Syracuse. They're fascinating and under-represented.
