3. Paris, France

I can never get enough of this glorious capital, whose beauty has been so well-captured in <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB004228" title="Woody Allen" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/woody-allen-PECLB004228.topic">Woody Allen</a>'s recent <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ENMV0011337" title="Midnight in Paris (movie)" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/midnight-in-paris-%28movie%29-ENMV0011337.topic">"Midnight in Paris"</a> film. To me, Paris is on the frontier of virtually every subject I care about: cuisine (its restaurants and open-air markets are legendary), art (its museums and galleries are countless), theater (numerous playhouses and concert halls), life of the mind (its newspapers, colleges and forums are an endless source of new solutions) and history. Its residents, contrary to a popular misunderstanding, actually are quite friendly; and its prices are reasonable to the tourist who takes the time to research the options.
