Visiting Brussels vs Paris

The first half of our trip is to Amsterdam. We have 2 1/2 days to see another city. Deciding between Brussels and Paris. Any suggestions as to which one is more preferable? Maybe another destination in the same vicinity that we've not considered

I have been to both of these cities and think Paris is WAY better than Brussels. I have been back to Paris numerous times but have only been to Brussels once (and do not have any plans to return). I recommend that you buy a guide book on both cities and get a feel for what both cities have to offer.

What Rockyjoe said. IMHO no contest. We have also visited Brussels once for a few days as our daughter studied there for a semester; we have been to Paris 15 times for as much as two months at a time. Just returned from 6 weeks there.
