And what a city.

“Poets have tried to describe Ankh-Morpork. They have failed. Perhaps 
it's the sheer zestful vitality of the place, or maybe it's just that a 
city with a million inhabitants and no sewers is rather robust for 
poets, who prefer daffodils and no wonder. So let's just say that 
Ankh-Morpork is as full of life as an old cheese on a hot day, as loud 
as a curse in a cathedral, as bright as an oil slick, as colourful as a 
bruise and as full of activity, industry, bustle and sheer exuberant 
busyness as a dead dog on a termite mound.”
― Terry Pratchett, Mort
