As for settling on mountains i would advise against it.If someone is forced to defend from behind city walls battle is probably lost and no amount of def bonus from high ground will help, success of any siege is resolved in siege camp location and its ability to pound enemy city and survive attacks, and not in battle within city that is targeted.

Best way to protect your city is to settle on 7 farm land, that will enable training large armies that are far more effctiv in both def and off then any high ground.Just compare that 20k troops (евен 30к if you try real hard) you can have in 7 farm city to 10k troops that you would have on 5 farm mountain.It is simply not worth to settle any land that has less then 7 farms. Not to mention that 7 farms will alow you to grow faster since you will spend less time upgrading farms and more time building high pop buildings,and get more pop faster and thus more cities sooner with less effort.What better protection to your cities then strong acount you can have.With more taxes you could also use more sovs to increas troop production or advance res production.Ability to outproduce other guy in 2:1 or even 3:1 ratio in troop training is significant advantage you should not discard by making 5 farm city.
