Favorite (place in the) city
“Which is your favourite city?” is not only a question of place, but also a matter of time. For example, Paris in 1871 was a different city than Paris today. Nevertheless, if I have to choose one city, I would go for the self-declared capital of geography, Saint-Dié-des-Vosges.
