Netflix’s latest series Emily in Paris is your next rom-com obsession, starring Lily Collins as American marketing executive Emily, who is given her dream job working for a luxury perfume company in Paris.
Filmed on-location in Paris and Loire Valley, the series showcases stunning streets and aesthetic squares found in the French capital, featuring both iconic landmarks (the Eiffel Tower) and lesser-known gems.
If you’ve already fallen in love with the city after watching just a few episodes, here’s a guide to some of the locations featured in Emily in Paris.
The Palais Garnier is the 19th century opera house, which Emily visits to watch Swan Lake in episode six.
Built for the Paris Opera in 1861, the theatre is one of Paris’ heritage sites, and is just located outside of Gaillon.
Le Grand Véfour
Michelin star establishment Le Grand Véfour features in Emily in Paris as the restaurant that Emily tries to get her colleagues and a potential new client into, only to discover that she’s mistakenly booked a table for the wrong month.
Opened in the Palais-Royal arcades in 1784, this iconic restaurant is currently run by French chef Guy Martin and owned by the Tattinger Group.
Pont Alexandre III
Pont Alexandre III is one of the many famous bridges located in Paris, on which Savoir’s latest perfume advert is filmed in the show. In the series, we see Emily behind-the-scenes of the commercial, with her colleagues sat in collapsable chairs on the bridge, before getting a better view of the whole bridge when the advert is shown to all staff at Savoir.
The bridge, built between 1896 and 1900, leads to the Champs-Élysées quarter and is watched over by four gilt-bronze statues of Greek god Fames. It’s featured in many other films, including Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, romantic drama Me Before You and Bond film A View to a Kill.
Musée des Arts Forains
