All of the above and more... Ankh-Morpork is based on every city that ever had a river through it. Since cities tend to be based around rivers or other watery elements, that includes most of them: London, Paris, Rome, Prague, etc.

Indeed. I think I remember hearing that the only capital city (possibly even major city) in Europe that is not either on a major river or by the sea, is Madrid.

Madrid does have a river but it is very small, when I can get photobucket working ill add a picture.
The original capital however was Toledo, but the legend goes that one of the Spanish kings changed the capital so that his queens hair wouldn't keep going frizzy!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
