I don't think that's true, though. Prime real estate in Rome is expensive, but not comparable to prime real estate in Paris.

And Rome has been harder hit by the economic problems than Paris, at least in terms of recent real estate trends. It's still extremely expensive in Rome, but Paris has few rivals globally.

I think Rome also has a smaller "global elite pied-a-terre" housing stock. It's just a smaller city, and with less real estate serving that sort of population.
