My favorite city is Paris, France because of the lifestyle, architecture, history, and, yes, the culture & people. When we were in Paris for 16 days we stayed with French friends and lived their lifestyle. We rode the metro, shopped for groceries, ate 2 hour long dinners, and had in-depth (even heated) discussions. The French (many of them) also love American "culture." The key for my wife and I getting along so well in Paris is we spoke our intermediate French with everyone and almost everyone we met also speaks English to some extent as we discovered when we ran out of French vocabulary. Oui, Paris is my favorite city!
