London or Paris? - Page 5

post #61 of 79
I understand. I don't have significant experience with the worst banlieues around Paris, but I can't imagine they approach Athens in their shittiness. Considering the majority of Athens is a 20th century development, any inherent historical significance associated with Ancient Grreece is going be to largely absent from the day to day life of Athenians, whereas the historical significance of Paris and Rome is ubiquitous to one's interaction with the city.

Reminds me of when I last went to Rome. Still lots of historical old buildings and such, but outside the traditional center of the city it didn't feel very 'Roman', so to speak. The haziness of the city due to smog (and the summer heat) probably didn't help things. Unfortunately, things in Greece don't look to be getting any better in the near future, which is a tragedy really.

Not keen on Paris but I hate London with a passion.

as an american, ive been to london more times than i could count and never found the appeal. even had the misfortune of living nearby (in east anglia) for a period of time and the subsequent visits to london never recolored that opinion. the whole country, tbh, is not very inspiring, and im not saying that just because its july 4th...

Milan is way below par compared to London and Paris, FYI.

London: The Britons are lovely people, it is the Tailoring capital of the world, I speak the language. Further, as I speak only English and German, I doubt I will be welcomed with open arms by the Parisians.

London--both cities have virtually the same negative aspects, so you might as well experience them in your own language. :P

Don't you mean "I might as well experience them in my own language." Why are you speaking in the second person as if on behalf of someone else? Someone else may speak French ... or French and English.

I speak both and I prefer to listen to insults in French

Love both.

Read Mr. Hero's posts. He's spot on.

That said, London has awesome footy and orchestras, but Parisian women are hotter, thinner, the food and wine's better, and the men know what footwear to pair with suits.

London in summer and Paris in winter.... The christmas markets last december were amazing in paris

Paris all year round!

I have never been to either but I think I would choose Paris because of its superior transportation (so I have heard, not experienced) and location to travel all over Europe while keeping the "home-base" if you will, in Paris.
