Locations that you need to visit the next time you are in Paris.
Emily’s apartment is in Latin Quarter. The area is the fifth and sixth arrondissements of Paris. It is situated on the left bank of the Seine, around the Sorbonne.
She chose this area as there is so much to do. Known for its lively atmosphere, and bistros, the Latin Quarter is also home to several higher education establishments.
The Boulangerie Moderne is where Emily picks up her favorite pains au chocolat, while Café de la Nouvelle Mairie is where Emily usually gets her brunch. Emily’s neighbor Gabriel works at the Italian restaurant Les Deux Compere in the series but in reality, the restaurant is named Terra Nera, the perfect place to dine with friends.
Place de Valois, 1er arrondissement
Emily in Paris workplace, Savoir is in the first arrondissement, somewhere in between the Palais-Royal and second arrondissement where a stunning secret courtyard is located. Here you will find the Galerie Patrick Fourtin that is much seen on the series, above is where Emily goes to work.
Jardin du Palais Royal
Jardin du Palais Royal is a beautiful park within walking distance from Emily’s workplace (Savoir). Early in the season of Emily in Paris, she goes to lunch alone at the park and that was when she first met Mindy. The park often missed by visitors is filled with contemporary-style sculptures, a fountain, and lime trees. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the outdoors in Paris.
Pont Alexandre III
Pont Alexandre III is often said to be the most beautiful bridges in Paris, or you could say in the world! The bridge is decorated with Art Nouveau lamp posts, nymphs, and winged horses, and overlooks the Seine. This breathtaking location is where the perfume ad campaign in the third episode took place.
Le Cafe de L’Homme
Le Cafe de L’Homme is a contemporary Parisian brasserie known for its unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower. This place is where Savoir throws a fancy party for Antonie’s perfume launch, not forgetting Emily’s first awkward encounter with Antoine. Another alternative with a cheaper menu would be Montparnasse Tower, the 56th floor observation deck offers panoramic views of Paris including the Eiffel Tower.
Atelier des Lumieres
Atelier des Lumieres is a popular art centre using light, sound, and video to create a unique way of experiencing art. It’s one of the things you won’t want to miss In Paris. Emily had an awkward third wheel date with Camille and Gabriel at a Van Gogh exhibit.
Café de Flore
Café de Flore is one of the oldest coffee houses in the city. The outdoor patio is where Emily meets her first French boyfriend, Thomas.
Home to Paris ballet and opera performances, Palais Garnier is a stunning location. Don’t miss the gold painted grand foyer, horse shaped auditorium and opera library museum.
