Is 'Emily in Paris' filmed in France?
Oui oui! Along with the titular city, filming has taken place in gorgeous French locales including the Loire Valley and the French Riviera.
'Emily in Paris' filming locations: season one
Season one of Emily in Paris was—big shocker—predominantly filmed in Paris, France. The first season saw Lily Collins' Emily Cooper gallivanting across the French city among many recognizable attractions.
1. Palais Garnier
The opera house where Emily goes in the first season, Palais Garnier was inaugurated in 1875 at the request of Napoleon III.
2. Le Grand Véfour
After her night at the opera, we see Emily indulging in a delicious dinner at the iconic restaurant. The Michelin-starred restaurant has been described as "the finest gourmet rendezvous of the Parisian political, artistic, and literary society for more than 200 years." We're definitely adding this one to our bucket lists for our next trip to Paris!
3. Pont Alexandre III
Pont Alexandre III is a bridge that stretches across France's Seine River, and where Antonie shoots the commercial for his new perfume.
4. Musée des Arts Forains
Musée des Arts Forains offers a collection of artifacts from "the performing arts of the 19th and 20th centuries." The museum is normally only used for special events, making it the perfect location for Emily’s marketing firm to use for one of their parties.
5. Place de L'Estrapade
Place de L'Estrapade is the location of Emily’s flat. The square also holds a café that Emily often visits in the series, as well as the Italian restaurant that Gabriel works at.
6. Place de Valois
Place de Valois holds the offices of the marketing firm Emily works for, Savoir.
7. Jardin du Palais Royal
This is a key location for Emily at the beginning of the series, as we see her eating lunch alone on a bench. It’s also the location she meets Mindy for the first time and where Mindy does an impromptu singing performance.
8. Rue de l'Abreuvoir
Rue de l'Abreuvoir is dubbed the "prettiest street in Paris," so of course it’s the place Emily and Mindy go to spend one last night in Paris. The pair go to dinner at the La Maison Rose, located on the corner of Rue de l’Abreuvoir and Rue des Saules.
'EMILY IN PARIS' FILMING LOCATIONS: SEASON TWO
Season two of Emily in Paris started filming back in May 2021, with production taking place in Paris and St. Tropez, a stunning coastal town sitting on the French Riviera.
However, we see Emily not in the Côte d’Azur, but actually in a little fishing village about an hour and a half out of St. Tropez called Villefranche-sur-Mer.
1. Gare du Nord
Feeling guilty over her romance with Gabriel, Emily takes a weekend trip away. She travels from the large Parisian train station Gare du Nord.
2. Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat
Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat is Emily’s hotel of choice while in the French Rivera, which is based more in the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat region rather than in Saint Tropez.
3. Père Lachaise cemetery
Emily goes for lunch in the largest cemetery in the French capital with her colleague Luc. The cemetery is the resting place of famous people such as Édith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and French novelist and playwright Honoré de Balzac, whose grave Luc takes Emily to visit.
4. Galeries Lafayette
Galeries Lafayette is the biggest department store in Europe, so of course it’s somewhere that Emily must go shopping this season. She does so with new character Petra.
5. Le Raidd
Le Raidd is a gay bar that Emily goes to with Julien. The venue was once included in Time Out's top 100 best bars in Paris.
6. Palace of Versailles
In the final episode of Emily in Paris season two, we see a fashion show take place in the Palace of Versailles. The palace used to be a royal residence and now holds over 60,000 pieces of art.
