city names with a definite article

How can I know whether the city contains a definite article or not? Is there some rule?

Hi NA,

There is no rule dictating which cities take or article or not (as with any other language) so it's a case of learning which ones do, as there are far more who don't -

Le Havre, Le Caire, La Hague, etc.

Hope this helps!
