London. I love the UK; there's just something nostalgic about it...I think it has to do with English influence on American culture

Paris. One of the most beautiful cities in the world and doesn't have the same dreary feeling of London.

But if you add the people friendliness factor, it kinds of tip toward London.

So if I have a week getaway ticket: Paris
If I have to live for 1-2 months: London
Live for extended amount of time: None.

I personally like Paris better out of those big 2... thats coming from a U.S. citizen though... Paris feels like I went to another planet, London is kind of to me like whats the big deal. Both cool cities though, would have a lifetime of exploring in either, and you can always just take the Chunnel back and forth on the weekends. London seems a little more pricey... but I could live off baguettes for a month.

Tie.

Paris has better architecture and I like the street cafes a lot. But London has a bit more diversity and a better nightlife.

Impossible to choose. Two of the best cities on the planet. You can't lose with either.

Does anyone know how France and the U.K. calculate metro and urban area populations? The city of London is much larger than the city of Paris, but the former has more than six times the land mass. The metro area populations are roughly the same according to Wikipedia. People have always said that London is much bigger than Paris, but it never felt that way to me. Riding the RER everyday from the north suburbs to Chatelet, I thought Paris was about on the same scale with London and perhaps NYC.
