Things I like about Paris
-The museums, especially the Musée d'Orsay, the centre Pompidou, and of course the Louvre, the only drawback is the sometimes huge crowds at the entrance, but since Paris is easily reachable even for just a day trip I prefer to travel off-season, when it's more managable. (Even though it is never "quiet" in Paris of course)
-The arty feel of the city in general, in the better places of paris when the weather is nice and you sit on a terrace drinking some wine and watching people buy books and paintings along the Seine.
-It's probably the closest city that really feels like "travelling" all my problems seem far away when I'm in Paris (not that I have that many to begin with, but still :-)
-The Eiffel Tower, I know it's a bit of a tourist trap, but for some reason it makes me happy every time I see it
Things I dislike about Paris
-Parisians can be a bit bitchy, especially in traffic, but even in shops or other situations they're not exactly the friendliest people, of course there are always exceptions to this rule.
-The size, it takes you forever to get somewhere, even by metro
-The cost of living, 7 euros for a glass of coke? No thanks!
-People trying to sell you crap wherever you walk, especially bad around the Montmartre
