The high euro, low pound, low dollar and low yen are making continental European cities comparatively more expensive. The most expensive euro-zone city is by far Paris. 2009 has seen the cité be crowned dearest of all by wallets around the world.

Tokyo is second for the first time in a while. Oslo comes third, undubitably because of the Norwegian crown's overvaluation.

Have a look at the ranking chart on the Economist (http://www.economist.com/research/articlesBySubject/displaystory.cfm?subjectid=7933596&story_id=15659589).

Wow, it must be expensive if it costs more the visit than New York City. I haven't been there since the early 1990's and I do remember it was more expensive than Brussels.

Quite exotic..but i don't think it will affect the number of foreign tourists to the city,indeed some people may cut down stay while in Paris.but i will also work other way as it may pull visitors to the other cities of france..like Monaco and marselle.

Monaco isn't exactly cheaper than Paris. But there certainly is a lot more to see in France than Paris. Actually, the greater Paris region (including Versailles, Fontainbleau, etc.) amounts to perhaps 10% of the sightseeing in France.

There are big differences between arrondissements though. The cheapest are the 18th, 19th and 20th. The most expensive are the 6th, 7th, 8th and 16th. A luxury home in the 7th can fetch well over 15,000 euro per square metre.
