Welcome to the Guild.

There are programs ($$$) like Profantasy's Campaign Cartographer, and others like GIMP (FREE).

Welcome Aboard!

I can only second what NeonKnight has suggested, but I will add that GOOGLE Sketchup is also a possibility.

To my knowledge, there is no program that will just generate a good looking city...it takes a lot of hand labor in any program. There are some here who are trying to do what you want but we're still a long way away from getting it right. But we're getting closer all of the time. As for the other kind of map, I'll second the above.

The quickest way to create ship deckplans or city layouts is with a tile mapper such as Dungeonforge (free) or Dundjinni (not free).

With these programs you take existing tiles showing buildings, furniture, road sections, etc. and stamp them down onto a map wherever you want them.
