France Discovery; ‘Emily in Paris’ Filming Locations
As the title suggests, Emily in Paris follows Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) as she enjoys life in the French capital.
Emily spends a lot of time as an American in Paris wandering the streets and visiting prominent buildings, but she also makes time in her hectic schedule to explore other places.
Many of the places Emily visits are real, and fans of the program can visit them to reenact their favorite scenes from the show.
The second season of the show, which premieres on Wednesday, December 22, includes a lot of intriguing destinations, and here’s everything you need to know about them.
Place de L’Estrapade
Emily’s apartment is from a stage, but the view over Paris is very true and the café that she visits.
The café is in the Latin area of Paris, near the Panthéon, and across the street is an Italian restaurant that serves as Gabriel’s (Lucas Bravo) employment.
Place de Valois
Emily’s marketing agency, Savoir, has offices on the Place de Valois, a peaceful neighborhood near Palais Royal.
The show’s marketing firm’s entrance is just next to an art gallery called Galerie Patrick Fortin, making it easy for fans to find.
Jardin du Palais Royal
When Emily first comes to Paris, she frequents the Jardin du Palais Royal, where she eats her lunch alone on a bench while admiring the park’s vistas.
She meets Mindy (Ashley Park) for the first time, and the two frequently visit the spot for lunch.
Mindy decides to sing in an impromptu performance at the Jardin du Palais Royal, which Emily encourages her to do.
Rue de l’Abreuvoir
Emily establishes her profession as a social media influencer while in Paris, much to the chagrin of her boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu).
Emily chooses to have one final night out in Paris online with Mindy after Sylvie tells her to erase her social media.
The couple visits several locales, including the Rue de l’Abreuvoir in Montmartre, deemed “Paris’ prettiest street,” and where they dine at La Maison Rose.
Pont Alexandre III
The Pont Alexandre III is a beautiful bridge where Antonie (William Abadie) shoots his new perfume advertisement.
The advertisement depicts a model walking naked on the bridge while being admired by a group of handsome, suit-clad guys, which Emily claims is “sexist,” but Antoine claims “hot,” sparking a disagreement between them.
Le Café de L’Homme
In the series, Antoine organizes a party in Le Café de L’Homme, a Parisian brasserie noted for its views of the Eiffel Tower, to celebrate the debut of his luxury perfume.
Musee des Arts Forains
Savoir throws a party at Paris’s Musée des Arts Forains, which is generally a private museum that only opens for rare events.
Café de Flore
Emily meets her first French boyfriend, Thomas (Julien Floreancig), for supper at Café de Flore, where they wager on whether the man and woman in front of them are mother and son or lovers.
The site is one of Paris’s oldest cafés, and it’s famous for being where Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir spent their time, as Thomas mentions in the performance.
Emily visits the Palais Garnier to see Swan Lake and meet with Pierre Cadault (Jean-Christophe Bouvet) in the hopes of persuading him to work with her luxury agency once more.
She is shown heading up the famous opera house’s stairwell, where she breaks up with Thomas.
