what is the LA's European equivalent?

Jump to last reply

I've been wondering for some time.

I have a project for school where I create a travel guide of equivalents. I chose USA and Europe

So far I have chosen NYC and Paris as equivalents - to explain - both are the typical cities for the country/region, both are worldwide significant, both are very different in structure and buildings but actually the same in a way. Both cities are important in history, culture, art, fashion and business. If you think of Europe, you think of Eiffel tower. If you think of the USA, you think of the Statue of Liberty.

Both cities have influence on each other (in Paris we can find many NY styled restaurants, bars, etc., the same for NYC).

Many would say London is European equivalent for NYC but I don't agree. They look similar to each other, but the 'soul' of the cities is pretty much different.

Now I'have chosen Los Angeles from the USA and I am looking for the European equivalent.

So far I am choosing from:

Barcelona - has beaches like LA, the central ones and the farther ones such as Sitges, Garraf and Castelldefels. The climate of both cities is very similar, though LA is a bit hotter all year round.

LA is important in the entertainment industry and sports, Barcelona is important in sports (the biggest stadium is in Barcelona and it is the home city for FCB)

The downtown is very different from the rest of the city. In LA the DTLA is not a residing part of the city that much, it is dirtier but culturally still important. In Barcelona the Ciutat Vella is also dirtier and different, yet important with museums, architecture and restaurants.

Both are surrounded by mountains filled with luxury villas.

Cannes - the city lies near the sea with beaches, though it is a bit smaller and unimportant within Europe. It is a host city for many entertainment events and award shows. However it is small it's kind of interconnected with cities such as Nice (just 30km away) which makes the city urban area bigger

Italy - haven't chosen a city particularly yet, been thinking about Milan (doesn't have beaches) and Rome. Rome is near the beach, but the city culture is not very beach-like.

Do you have any ideas? or other city equivalents? Please share with me and help.
