But I've been to Paris. What a fucking city. Beautiful, fascinating nightlife, countless museums and sights, the Metro, cinemas, Edith Piaf chansons, good cuisine (although nothing beats Italian cooking, of course), even the cemeteries are great places to visit. And it's surprisingly clean, compared to, say, Berlin.
Obviously there's a lot of very bad stuff going down in the Suburbs and the center is incredible crowded (felt like half of Japan was there), but I'd love to come back someday.
So which cities would you recommend?
