Top ten Paris locations from Emily in Paris
10. Place de Valois
When Emily left America, she did so to travel to Paris to help out a French associate company called Savoir. The whole idea was to help this agency appeal more to the American audience. As time went by, Emily’s position in Savoir and Paris became more and more secure, and the audience grew to know and love her one-of-a-kind office at Place de Valois. Present in the neighbouring area of the Louvre. Named after the late last kind of French, Louis Philippe, the square grew familiar to the audiences.
9. Rue de l’Abreuvoir
One of the most popular roads that are deemed Instagram-worthy is the one that slopes up from the Montmartre to Sacre-Coeur. Deemed one of the most charming spots in the city, the production team had to get on it! This very place is blessed with a vibrant corner cafe that was once a local’s favourite artist drop. Where artists like Pablo Picasso, Suzanne Valadon and even Maurice Utrillo were regulars. The historic spot is also adorned with their paintings.
8. Pont Alexandre III, Pont des Arts, Pont Neuf and the banks of the Seine
One way that the producers established that the whole point of making Emily in Paris has been a process of expressing Paris through the eyes of an outsider. In this case, Emily. Being an American, she is an active jogger. And is often seen to be taking such jogs whenever she is stressed. This is also a good opportunity for the producers to capture the scenic routes within Paris itself. This is the very route taken by Emily on most of her stress jogs along with many other iconic scenes shot through the seasons.
7. L’Atelier des Lumières
One of the most unique places on the list. This is the very place that Gabriel and his partner Camille (Camille Razat) choose to bring Emily on one of their night outs for an exhibition at the Atelier des Lumieres. This popular art gallery is known for its immersive exhibitions and various sound and visual projects. A true treat to any visitor’s eyes and ears. The truest form of a holistic experience.
6. Palace of Versailles
One of the most iconic places that were beautifully treated by the hands of the cameraman. Especially for the finale of the second season where a luxurious and extravagant fashion show was covered within the horizons of this very place. Held within the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace de Versailles, Emily and Sylvie attended a gorgeous representation of art meets function by Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu. Renowned for being one of France’s most popular tourist destinations, is also a treat for history lovers. Established by Louis XIV, this very palace was also the home to the infamous Treaty of Versailles signed in the 20th century.
5. St Tropez
Not exactly a part of Paris, but this gorgeous site was one that could not have missed the list. Present in the south of France, St Tropez is where Emily escaped amidst the second season of Emily in Paris. From enjoying oysters at the beach to visiting breathtaking restaurants like the Senequier itself. St Tropez is a part of paradise that simply can’t be missed!
The addition to the family of gorgeous sites being covered within the realms of France every season, this is the latest one. Started from Champagne to St Tropez, and now they have reached Provence. Emily had organised the most amazing Lavender McLaren launch at one of her associate’s owned properties.
Emily is seen with her new love Alfie (Lucien Laviscount) speeding through the gorgeous scenes around France on a luxurious and vibrant shade and edition of McLaren. Emily confesses in the show how one should be grateful for everything that France has to offer. And Provence is a breathtaking site posing as the best example for the simple fact!
3. The Panthéon
The building which was once a neoclassical church came to be known as a secular monument during the French Revolution. It also serves as the resting place for great men like Jean Jacques Rousseau and Victor Hugo themselves. Exactly where Emily was posed to have her first breakup with her boyfriend from over seven seas.
2. Place de l’Estrapade
Present right around the former mentioned Pantheon. The very place with gorgeous Parisesque architecture that Emily first moved to. The very place where Emily met Gabriel and moved in with her soul twin, Mindy (Ashley Park). The very same spot is also where Gabriel’s (Lucas Bravo) fictional restaurant is situated. A dreamy house with some plumbing work to be done blessed Emily’s soul for the long three seasons already.
1. Château de Montpoupon
Set in Touraine, France, Château de Montpoupon was a previously destroyed monument during the war and was rebuilt during the Renaissance period. Remember the classic scene in a romantic hot air balloon ride at sunset behind a breathtaking castle? We have reached yet another iconic moment in the history of Emily in Paris where the views are to die for. The once monumental castle now serves as a museum for hunting and is open for public visits!
