Emily in Paris self guided tour

Are you a fan of the TV series ‘Emily In Paris’? Well, look no further, below you can find all the iconic locations which appear throughout the series – restaurants, cafés, instagrammable areas and more.

1. Emily’s Apartment

Right next to the Pantheon you can find Emily’s apartment, situated in the latin quarter. The building overlooks a peaceful square, lined with paulownia, and where in the centre, stands a pretty fountain.
Her room, situated on the 5th floor (with no lift!), has a beautiful and unobstructed view over Paris

2. Les Deux Compères

Gabriel’s famous restaurant is situated right next to Emily’s apartment! You may have noticed the name is not the same. The restaurant they used to film in is actually called Terra Nera - an Italian gem.
Rumour has it, that soon the restaurant will be introducing the ‘Emily Menu’ where you can taste Gabriel’s classic dishes!

Also known as: Emily’s favourite boulangerie!
Literally next to both the apartment and the restaurant, you will find the ‘Boulangerie Moderne’. This is where Emily goes to buy her favourite pain au chocolat. What are you waiting for? Go on, treat yourself

4. Savoir Agency

The agency that Emily works for does not actually exist, however the building does! It sits proudly in the middle of the very chic ‘Place de Valois’, nestled between the Royal Palace and the Louvre. The entrance to the agency adjoins the real Patrick Fourtin gallery, specialising in luxury furniture from the 20th century that can be seen in several scenes.

5. Le Bistrot Valois

Located right next to her agency, the bistro has a beautiful terrace where Emily’s colleagues enjoy having lunch with or without her! Why not sit out on the terrace and enjoy a coffee, or even some lunch?

6. Jardin du Palais-Royal

Next to Emily’s agency you can find a beautiful garden where she actually spends her first lunch break. This is where she meets Mindy for the first time, and where they continue to meet throughout the series. They met on the bench with the phrase “Aujourd’hui, c’est demain et hier qui s’épousent” - Cocteau. Can you find it? 

43 Rue de Valois, 75001, Paris

7. Le Grand Véfour

Situated at the back of the royal palace garden, this is the restaurant that Emily tried and failed to book for a meeting with a client. 

The name of the establishment was chosen in honour of the Duke of Chartres, eldest son of Louis d’Orléans, the one who undertook the development of the Royal Palace. 

Take a look inside, the decor is amazing, dating back to the 18th century! 

17 Rue de Beaujolais, 75001, Paris

8. Pont Alexander II

This is the bridge where, in the series, a French perfume brand film their advert. This scene is strongly reminiscent of a well-known ad, that of the perfume of Yves Saint-Laurent starting Marine Vacth. Only one difference, the model in this episode is completely naked!!!!

This bridge is also very famous in Paris, symbolising the Franco-Russian friendship, established by the signing of the alliance in 1891 between Emperor Alexander III and the President of the French Republic, Sadi Carnot.

9. Place Dalida

This road, according to Mindy, is the most beautiful street in Paris - the Rue de l’Abreuvoir. It flows from the Place Dalida, where the bust of the singer is enthroned, all the way up to La Maison Rose.
This is where Emily sets up a bed for the Hästens mattress marketing campaign. There may not actually be a bed there, but the view is not one to miss

One of the most iconic and instagrammable places, situated in Montmartre.

13. Sacré-Coeur

A very instagrammable place, and a must see in Paris, as proven by Emily and Gabriel. 

The Basilica of Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, commonly known as Sacré-Coeur, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica in Paris dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This incredible monument is located at the summit of Montmartre, 200m above the Seine, overlooking the entire city of Paris and its suburbs.

14. The wall of I love you

Ah Paris, the city of love. Emily and Gabriel stroll through the streets of Montmartre. After an obligatory visit to the Sacré-Coeur, they meet in front of the Wall of I Love You. As Emily describes it, this wall was created by “a calligrapher who collected more than 300 ways to say I love you, with a mural artist who then engraved them on lava tiles.” A beautiful, romantic spot to not miss when in Paris.

15. Mcdonalds

In Episode 1 of season 3, Gabriel invites Emily to have lunch at the Mcdonalds located on the Champs Elysées. This moment helps to inspire the American expatriate for her marketing campaign, the McBaguette. In fact, the collaboration has gone beyond fiction. The fast food chain has actually launched an “Emily In Paris” menu consisting of the famous McBaguette and macaroons!! 
Bon appetit!

16. Canal Saint-Martin

During her brief time off, Emily has time to wander around Paris. Of course, she doesn’t fail to find the best photo spots to take some selfies. In the middle of summer, what more charming place than the quays of the Canal Saint-Martin to take a break with a good bottle of rosé? Emily has understood Parisian life.

The “Italian-style” auditorium can accommodate 2054 spectators. With nearly 480,000 visitors each year, it is one of Paris' most visited monuments. It has been listed as a historical monument since 1923 and definitely not one to miss when in Paris!

18. Parc des Buttes Chaumont

In the third episode of season 3, Emily and Alfie take a romantic break in the famous Buttes-Chaumont park.

21. Le Flore en L’ile

It seems that Luc and Emily really enjoy meeting at Le Flore en L’ile. Just like in the first season, the two protagonists meet on the terrace of this unmissable place in the Parisian landscape. Located on the Ile Saint-Louis, not far from Notre Dame, this place with its typical Parisian charm, could only please Emily.

A very chic Parisian bistro! Along a cobblestone street, this iconic restaurant not far from the Ile Saint-Louis could only appear in season 3, episode 10. With its Belle Epoque decor this restaurant can be enjoyed from the inside or even just the outside. Be aware: it is expensive!

In the heart of the former Orsay train station, the famous museum exhibits the richest collection of impressionist and post impressionist paintings in the world. In episode 9 of season 3, we are lucky enough to see this renowned museum, where Camille and Gabriel share a moment together. 
Did you know that the actor Lucas Bravo (Gabriel) told Netflix that he felt privileged to shoot a scene in this legendary place, which he considers his favourite museum in the world! Definitely one to book when in Paris.
