The readers of Conde Nast Traveler gave Sydney a score of 85.1, ahead of the next highest scoring city, Florence at 85, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

NSW tourism minister George Souris said it was the second major international award for Sydney, which was named the world's best festival and major events city by the International Festival and Events Association last week.

"Winning this latest award demonstrates Sydney's position as a world leading destination and the gateway to Australia," Souris said in a statement.

"This makes us Australia's leading tourism and events city and will help the government in its quest to restore NSW to its position as the nations premiere state," he added.
