I'm making my first map and want to put a city inside another territory. I thought I did it but now it's disappeared. Any thoughts or tips on how to do this?

I think you make a city-sized hole in the other territory but not sure how exactly.

you have to cut a hole inside of it and draw a separate territory

What you do:

1.Create the city shape
2.Place it where you want it in the other territory
3.Duplicate - Ctrl+D - the city shape
4.Move the duplicated shape aside
5.Click on both (using shift) the territory and the original city shape
6.Now, go to 'Path' then 'Exclusion' or press ctrl+^
7.Move the new city shape into the position of the old (now a hole in the territory)
8.You can then leave it like that or if you want a clean border, you will have to adjust it into place or press ctrl+(

I don't understand why you would move the duplicate. If you make the city shape and put it where you want, duplicate it and the duplicate will automatically be selected then you shift click the territory and click path/difference the original shape will already be perfectly placed. By using the duplicate to make the hole you don't have to adjust anything.

it does not matter which way you do it, both lead to same result and speed.
