We were given a list of cities to choose from, but I don't know much on any of them except Paris. If someone could give me some info about what the community of each is like, tourist attractions (if there are any), life in general, and any other random information that would be really helpful.

The cities are:
Annecy
Caen
Cagnes-sur-Mer
Genève
Grenoble
Nantes
Paris
Salon-de-Provenece
Tours

Thanks a bunch! :)
