    In 2009 and 2010 Paris has been ranked among the three most important and influential cities in the world,
    among the first three "European cities of the future" – according to a research published by Financial Times –
    and among the top ten cities in the world in which to live according to the British review Monocle (June 2010).
    An important settlement for more than two millennia, Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres,
    and its influences in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities.
    Paris also ranks among the 10 greenest European cities in 2010

    most expensive city to live in.
