Sacramento ranked as having the best climate in the world

California is synonymous with sunshine and great weather, so it should be no surprise the Golden State's capitol has the best climate on earth, according to Medium.com.

Sacramento was ranked as having a better climate than San Diego and Los Angeles, as well as cities overseas such as Barcelona, Istanbul and Rome. 

The cities compared were determined by the 400 Cities Nomad Index which answers the question: Which cities globally are cheap, safe and have the best climate? The index is rooted using a commercial algorithm from crowd-sourced data.

The study was conducted using the Koppen-Geiger climate classification, a widely-used vegetation based system created by a German botanist-climatologist in 1900. 

The climates were ranked 1 through 13, #1 being the best and #13 being the worst. 

Cities in Russia, Finland and Iceland landed in the #13 Sub-Arctic climate category.

Sacramento lands in the #1 Hot Mediterranean climate category, along with Tel-Aviv, Israel and Casablanca, Morocco. 

It's described as 'paradise' by Medium.com and is the climate that makes luxurious treats such as wine, olives, and pomegranates. 

This desirable climate usually occurs on the western sides of continents and experiences hot and dry summers and winters that usually aren't freezing.
