Paris has also proved to be particularly expensive, compared to other cities when it comes to the cost of entertainment and clothes.
The same can be said for the cost of a basket of goods in a supermarket, although the authors of the studies believe this may have something to do with the quality of product demanded by the French.
There was good news for smokers and drinkers however.
“Only alcohol and tobacco offering value for money compared with other European cities,” says the report.
Jon Copestake, the editor of previous studies has told The Local that while Paris was pricey there was an upside.
“Paris has always been expensive. It’s partly driven by high real estate prices that feed through to retail prices,” he said. “It's just structurally expensive and the high wages also makes a difference.”
“Parisians shouldn’t see it as bad news. It's partly due to the high salaries there. It just means other places abroad are cheaper when they go and visit. They will have a much higher purchasing power. It’s the same in places like Oslo where prices are also driven up by the very high salaries,” Copestake added.
