Granary , Aquaduct, Hospital And the Medical Lab ....
You need those buildings

Place you're citie you want to grow into grasland ...

Make extra production buildings like workshops and windmill so you can put it on default or food focus and build units or buildings faster

If you get freedom you're specialist consume less food as result you can use enginiers for good production and grow fast..

Tradition tree, wonders like Temple of Artemis and Hanging Gardens that promote growth, and buildings like the above poster mentioned. It's all about the food!

Find a site with 4 Wheat Resources.
Build the Hanging Gardens in it.
Build a Granary, too.
Build an Aqueduct.
Build a Hospital.
Build a Medical Lab.
Finish Tradition.
Buy up every Maritime City State on the planet.

My largest city was size 42. Playing as Gandhi can indirectly help; he saves hammers on :) buildings so can afford to have more farms and growth building going on.

All you need for up to 35 pop is 2 bonus food resources (wheat, flood plains, Aztec Lake, etc), granary, HG, aqueduct, hospital, medical lab. I think you can even do this in partial desert as long as you build HG.

I'm more and more finding that ToA is unachievable except by conquest.

The bigger cities through food mod gave me a size 103 city once. It ads +2 food for every farm and +2 food on water tiles with a lighthouse.

early social policies, and hanging gardens. ally with cultural cs as early as possible. build granary and aqueduct early. I was able to get landed elite on turn 15 with germany last night on emperor. by turn 50 my pop was at 9!! aztecs are crazy... had pop of 50 at turn 250 with them the other day
