Whether you loved it or hated Emily in Paris, you can't deny that it satisfied a demand for people who want to visit Paris without leaving the comfort of their couch. For the numerous Francophile viewers of the show, the magnificent and picturesque locations in and around Paris were a major lure.
The City of Love is portrayed in the series in a romantic and stereotyped way that regular visitors would recognize as common. We have compiled a list of places for you here from the first, second, and third seasons, including some of Paris's most lavish and sumptuous spots as well as a few unexpected gems.
1. Le Jules Verne
Le Jules Verne plays a crucial role in the story because of a disagreement between Emily's superiors. At the Le Jules Verne restaurant on the Eiffel Tower, a furious quarrel broke out between Sylvie, Madeline, and Emily.
Despite the fact that the Boss fights may have kept people away from this bizarre restaurant, the large window panes offer a breathtaking view of Paris. The Michelin-starred restaurant offers views of the Champ-de-Mars, the Quai Branly, and the Trocadéro from its 400-foot perch.
The Parisian landmark has a Champagne bar at the top and a few more spots where people may gather.
2. L'Atelier des Lumières
In a scene from Emily in Paris, Emily visits to L'Atelier des Lumières with Gabriel and Camille to see the art installation center.
It was once a closed-down factory, but today it is a gallery where visitors may be mesmerized by interactive works of art by master artists like Renoir, Picasso, and Van Gogh.
3. Pont Alexandre III
Pont Alexandre III was one of the more famous filming sites from Emily in Paris. It's where the Savoir films the explicit perfume commercial for customer Antoine Lambert.
One of Paris' most stunning bridges, Pont Alexandre III, spans the Seine and is adorned with lampposts. Whether it's daytime or nighttime, it makes the ideal backdrop for any Instagram photo.
4. Palais Garnier
Emily explores the lavish Palais Garnier in the sixth episode of the first season. The opera theater is nearly monstrously intimidating on the outside but undoubtedly gorgeous within. It was designed by Charles Garnier at Napoleon III's request.
The beautiful Marc Chagall artwork on the big auditorium's ceiling is another highlight, as is the enchanted marble central staircase. Also, the establishment provides guided and self-directed tours where visitors may learn about the Phantom of the Opera mythology.
5. Seine River
The Seine's riverbanks are lined with some of the city's most recognizable landmarks. With a length of 485 miles from Dijon to the English Channel, the Seine is the third-longest river in France.
Many well-known impressionist paintings have used this river as its subject, including Monet's Bathers at La Grenouillere and Renoir's Seine River at Asnieres. About half of the water consumed in Paris is still provided by the Seine.
6. Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat
After a romantic little stopover in Villefranche, Emily and Mathieu finally make their way to St. Tropez, where they stay at the opulent Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons hotel. It seldom gets much better when it comes to filming venues than this.
It is understandable why numerous films have been filmed at this old hotel given the area's magnificent cliffs, antique lighthouse, and the expansive Mediterranean Sea in the background.
7. Cimetière Père Lachaise
The second season of Emily in Paris includes a scene set in this eerie yet well-known cemetery. Pere Lachaise is a haven of peace and quiet in the heart of Paris.

9. Café de Flore
Café de Flore is one of the most well-known restaurants that Emily in Paris mentions. The iconic 19th-century bistro and café serve as the setting for a sequence in the sixth episode of the show when Emily meets the professor, Thomas.
You are welcome to eat there or take in a traditional French breakfast at the exclusive Café de Flore. Café de Flore is a restaurant in the city's Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood that is close to Les Deux Magots, the bistro's primary rival.
The impressive Panthéon structure is located just around the corner from Place de l'Estrapade. It was once a neoclassical church erected on Louis XV's order before changing after the French Revolution into a secular monument to the "great men of the Republic."
It is the final resting place of notables including Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Victor Hugo. The 18th-century structure in Emily in Paris serves as the setting for the protagonist's breakup with her partner in Chicago.
11. La Maison Rose in Montmarte
Let's move on to more Emily in Paris filming sites that are a little bit further from the central Paris region! You've probably seen pictures of Montmartre, a renowned little village in northern Paris. It has the Sacre Coeur, and also "the most beautiful street in Paris".
The Le Maison Rose restaurant, which appears in an episode of Emily in Paris, is located on this street. This beautiful eatery with a pink exterior and green shutters is one of the nicest Parisian cafés and one of the most instagrammable spots in Montmartre!
12. Palace of Versailles
The Palace of Versailles is, without a doubt, one of the most gorgeous Emily in Paris shooting sites! It's a day excursion that is very worthwhile and is around an hour from the center of Paris.
The extravagant château, built by Louis XIV, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in France and the epitome of former government opulence. The aforementioned Hall of Mirrors, the spectacular decorative parterre in the gardens, and the elegantly manicured woodlands are only a few highlights.
13. Saint Tropez

14. Luxembourg Gardens
The second episode of Emily in Paris opens with Emily going for a morning jog in the park as she is taking a language lesson. The Jardin du Luxembourg is one of Paris' most beautiful gardens.

15. Place Dalida
On the fifth episode of Season 1 of Emily in Paris, Emily and Mindy are saying goodbye after their wild night in Montmartre's charming rue de l'Abreuvoir. This is one of the most beautiful alleys in Paris! The famed Maison Rose restaurant is located at the end of it.
