How close do you build your cities to one another?

When playing Civ3, I usually build my cities so that their initial boundries just touch one another, unless there's a great resource or place to build further away. I'm wondering if other people do this, or perhaps some other strategy for placing cities...

archipelgio-close build possible ICS

Five is optimal; sometimes six depending on the terrain and my goals.

I usually put them connecting each other.Occasionally I'll space them if an opponent is about to get an important square that I want.
