1. Gabriel’s Restaurant – Bistro Terra Nera

Start at Gabriel’s restaurant, aka Terra Nera in real life, to capture its typically Parisian red facade. Quintessentially Parisian, tables line the sidewalk outside the bistro, and the cobblestone streets and typical Parisian architecture create a scene straight out of Emily in Paris. 😍

While you’re here, don’t miss out on the opportunity to savour this charming bistro’s delicious food, wine and ambiance. The menu is a delightful mix of French and Italian cuisine, with creative and traditional dishes. Try the beef tartare with truffle oil or the homemade ravioli filled with burrata cheese and served with a creamy tomato sauce. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a live music performance while you enjoy your meal. 🎵

3. Emily’s Apartment at Place de l’Estrapade

After visiting Gabriel’s restaurant and La Boulangerie Moderne, check out Emily’s apartment building just a stone’s throw away. The apartment building exudes classic Parisian charm, with ornate balconies and grand windows overlooking the picturesque square below. And better yet, Emily’s apartment faces Place de l’Estrapade, a small square surrounding a lovely fountain. ⛲ Just steps away, you’ll find Arcopy, the site of Emily and Camille’s first meeting. 💐

Emily’s lovely Parisian apartment at Place de l’Estrapade is a must-see destination for fans of Emily in Paris and anyone looking to experience Paris like a local. Enjoy wandering through the charming square and imagine what it would be like to call this beautiful neighbourhood home. 🏠

4. The TRAM Cafe

Just around the corner from Emily’s apartment, you’ll find TRAM Café – a cozy cafe offering a unique blend of coffee and books. 📚 Once you lay eyes on the rich, navy facade, you’ll instantly recognize the cafe! Throughout the series, Emily has shared coffees with Luc, Sylvie and Mindy at this location. 

TRAM Café is located in Paris’s vibrant Latin Quarter neighbourhood, known for its picturesque streets, bars, cabarets and lively atmosphere. The café is situated on a bustling corner, with large windows offering a view of the surrounding streets – ideal for watching the world go by!

Wander inside, where you’ll be greeted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the sight of shelves stacked high with books in both French and English. The intimate atmosphere invites you to relax and unwind while enjoying a hot drink and perusing the selection of literature. ☕📖

5. The Pantheon

From there, head to the Pantheon, the Neoclassical monument 🏛️ in front of which Emily broke up with her American boyfriend, Doug, over the phone.

Located in the fifth arrondissement, the Pantheon is one of Paris’ most famous landmarks. It boasts a rich history, serving as the final resting place for many of France’s most famous figures, including Voltaire. Its impressive dome and grand facade are a beautiful sight to behold, and the ornate interior houses stunning frescoes and sculptures. This is easily one of the best places to take photos in Paris

If you’re in need of refreshment, head over to the nearby English-style pub, The Bombardier, where Emily and her new love interest, Alfie, grabbed a drink to go after French class in season two – the start of something special! 💗

6. Jardin du Luxembourg

Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most picturesque public parks in Paris. Emily is seen running through Jardin du Luxembourg throughout Emily in Paris season 3. And we don’t blame her! It’s a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors. 🏃‍♀️

Originally built in the early 17th century as the private garden of Marie de Medici, the park spans over 60 acres and features beautifully manicured gardens, fountains and stunning sculptures. Visitors can stroll along the tree-lined pathways, 🌳 enjoy a picnic on the grassy lawns or take a relaxing boat ride on the park’s central pond.

7. Café de Flore

Café de Flore is a legendary café in the heart of Paris, famous for its place in literary and cultural history. The café was opened in the 1880s and quickly became a popular spot for intellectuals, artists and writers, including Ernest Hemingway. ✍️

Today, Café de Flore remains a favourite. The outdoor seating area is particularly popular, offering a prime spot for people-watching and soaking up the atmosphere of this historic neighbourhood. And that’s exactly what Emily does! Several conversation scenes have been shot in this iconic location, including convos between Emily and Sylvie and Emily and Mindy. ☕

The surrounding area of Café de Flore is one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Paris – Saint-Germain – and is just a short walk from the Seine River and Musée du Louvre.

Be sure to visit nearby Monnaie de Paris, the sight of Pierre Cadault’s iconic fashion show, where he disrupts Grey Space’s show and reveals his show-stopping designs!

8. Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly the most recognizable landmark in Paris and one of the most popular places to take photos in Paris. 🇫🇷 Naturally, this means that Emily in Paris has countless Eiffel Tower scenes. From Emily’s very first selfie in episode one to Savoir’s client dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant in the third season, the Eiffel Tower plays an important role. 

To snap some incredible photos, head to the Trocadéro, one of the best Eiffel Tower vantage points available. Another excellent photo spot is the Pont Alexandre III, a beautiful bridge that offers a unique perspective of the tower and the Seine River.

This is a fabulous place for a guided photo shoot! Our customer, Emily, recently enjoyed exploring Paris with us. ‘It’s been my dream to celebrate my birthday in Paris since it falls on Bastille Day – July 14th! This year, we finally made it happen!! My husband planned the perfect day for me, starting with an Emily in Paris walking tour since we are fans of the show and my name is also Emily. 😉’ Read Emily’s full travel story!

🗺️Travel tip: The Eiffel Tower is even more beautiful in the evening when lit by countless sparkling lights that shimmer in the night sky. The view left Emily speechless during Antoine’s Maison Lavaux fragrance launch in season one. ​​✨

9. Montmartre

Nestled on a picturesque hilltop in Paris, Montmartre exudes a romantic charm that draws visitors from all over the world. Famous for its winding cobblestone streets, artistic history and lively atmosphere, it is easy to see why Montmartre plays a prominent role in Emily in Paris.

In season one, Emily and Mindy dine together at beloved La Maison Rose, an Instagrammable restaurant known for its vibrant pink and green hues. Emily also creates a marketing campaign for a luxury mattress company at Place Dalida, a famous square in Montmartre.

With countless things to do, there’s never a dull moment in Montmartre. Visit Sacré-Coeur, situated at Montmartre’s highest point, to take in breathtaking panoramic views of Paris. Or enjoy an incredible show at the Moulin Rouge, Paris’ historic cabaret. 💃

10. Place de Valois – Savoir

Place de Valois is a beautiful historic square that plays a small but memorable role in the show. Sylvie’s marketing firm, Savoir, is located here!

Located in the heart of Paris’s 1st arrondissement, Place de Valois is a picturesque square with beautiful 17th-century buildings that house various government offices and high-end boutiques. It is also home to the Palais-Royal, a historic palace next to Jardin du Palais-Royal – where Emily first met Mindy. 💕

Around the corner, Pont Neuf crosses the Seine. One of the most iconic and historic bridges in Paris, Pont Neuf played an important role in both the second and third seasons of Emily in Paris. Torn between Madeline and Emily, Alfie and Gabriel, this is where Emily contemplated her future and prepared for big decisions.

11. Season 4 – Where will filming take place?

Are you as excited for la nouvelle season as we are?! Production for “Emily in Paris” season 4 is officially underway, and we can only imagine Emily is still reeling from the season 3 cliffhanger (can you say ‘sacré bleu’ 🤦‍♀️ ). While filming was originally supposed to take place at the Cité du Cinema studios, due to the Olympic Games, “Emily in Paris” will be shooting at Studios Monjoie instead. We hope to see iconic locations included this season such as the Palais Garnier and Atelier des Lumières. Lily Collins hinted at Emily taking “a Roman holiday,” leading us to believe we may be trading in Parisian opera houses for Roman amphitheatres. While we don’t know the exact locations for the newest season, we do know where the filming won’t take place – Camille’s family vineyard. 😳
