It might help to explain what sort of features you are interested in - every traffic light? Every tree?

How big has it to be, 5 or 1 milj, or 10.000 inh. ?

Sorry, I put the question wrong. To avoid burdening the servers with too complex queries I need to perform offline searches by downloading the maps from geofabrik.de. The problem is that by carrying out some tests I found that in my city the results are few because the city field is null. Instead with https://overpass-turbo.eu/ the data comes out because it takes the geographical coordinates of the geographical limit of the city (which unfortunately does not have a rectangular extension).

Indeed, the address tags are not so often completed on POIs. So, you want to know how to perform an offline search in a city, against a file of a larger area ? Maybe you should ask a new question, with more details, at least the tool you use for the offline search.

I've read and re-read your "Sorry, I put the question wrong" text, and now I have no idea at all what you want to do! As H_mlet says, please ask a new question with lots of detail about exactly what you want to do.

Thanks, I rephrased a new question with more detailed details.

I'd say most European capitals are well mapped, as well as most cities I have visited.

As for "fully mapped", I'm afraid it's a concept that doesn't apply to OSM. One can always add details, refine geometries, update POIs, etc.
