Melbourne, the world’s most livable city (CNN)

(CNN) -- Melbourne made it three years in a row as the world's most livable city, according to a 2013 survey.

The top cities and indeed much of the rankings remained similar to last year, with Australian and New Zealand cities landing five of the top 10 spots. Canadian cities made up another three of the top 10 positions. Vienna came a close second while Canadian cities Vancouver and Toronto stayed at third and fourth; Calgary tied with Adelaide for fifth place. The top spots are mostly "mid-sized cities in wealthier countries with a relatively low population density," said the EIU. At the bottom of the list, due to ongoing civil conflict in Syria is Damascus -- dropping 10 rankings.
