    Hi there,

    Barcelona is the best place to live in the world

    Thanks

    Only the second one is correct. The first would be correct (and also more natural than the second) if you replaced 'of' by 'in'.

    I agree with Coffa. If you change "of" to "in" in the first, I would choose it. But the other is not incorrect.
