Could this also be: "Is Paris your city?"

@Tay - not unless you change the Arabic sentence too.

I don't get it, how does one own a city? It seems that the sentence is talking about Paris as if its an object (e.g is that your hat Samia?) rather than a city. I may be incorrect, but I'm not so sure if they would say this in Arabic? Just asking to clarify.
