Just as many arrive looking for a route through Amelie’s Paris, with Emily’s free tour in Paris you will be able to visit some of the locations where the series has been recorded and here we will tell you many more so that you can follow Emily’s footsteps through the neighborhoods of Paris and live the charm of the city as if you were the protagonist.
Emily’s locations in Paris
Place de l’Estrapade
It all starts here, where Emily lives in Paris: in the Latin Quarter, in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. The wooden doors of the building that is in the middle of Place de l’Estrapade are already well known. Nearby is the Pantheon, the Sorbonne University, and the Luxembourg Gardens, where Emily often goes for a run.
Address: Place de l’Estrapade, Paris 5th district
At the end of the Place de l’Estrapade is the Boulangerie Moderne, the bakery where Emily usually goes to buy Pan au Chocolat. There you can find a large assortment of typical French sweets and breads, as well as admire the decoration that is just as seen in the series.
Address: 16 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques
Terra Nera, Gabriel’s restaurant at Emily in Paris
On the same street, you will find Gabriel’s restaurant -Emily’s handsome neighbor- and you will see that it is not called Les Deux Compères but Terra Nera and that it serves Italian food. The success of the series has been such that the restaurant has prepared a special menu called Emily in Paris, which is priced at €39 per person.
Address: 18 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jaques
Cafe de la Nouvelle Mairie
Right across from the Boulangerie Moderne and Les Deux Compères is the café where Emily often goes for coffee with her friends. The place has been there for over 30 years and really has the distinction of being the first natural wine bar in Paris.
Address: 19 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jaques
Place de Valois
This is where Savoir, the marketing company where Emily works in Paris, is located right across the street from the Bistrot Valois, the place where she often goes to eat with her co-workers. This is an elegant, rather quiet and somewhat hidden square that is now attracting visitors thanks to the rise of the series.
Gardens of the Royal Palace
Emily often passes through the gardens of the Royal Palace on her way to her office. It is very close to the Louvre Museum and it is right in the area of the Garden of Beautiful Letters, where there are poems written on the benches, where Emily meets her friend Mindy, under the shade of the leafy trees of the place.
Address: 2 Galerie de Montpensier
Le Grand Vefour
This restaurant, located in the arcades of the Royal Palace Gardens, was inaugurated in 1784 and today has 2 Michelin stars and is commanded by chef Guy Martin. It appears in Emily in Paris when the protagonist reserves a table for a very important work dinner and confuses the date.La Maison Rose, Emily’s café in Paris
This small pink house stands out in a corner of the Montmartre neighborhood and is one of its most emblematic places. It opened in 1910 and its regular clientele used to include Picasso or Edith Piaf herself. Here, Emily often goes to dinner with her friend Mindy, who says the place is on the prettiest street in Paris.
Address: 2 Rue de l’Abreuvoir, Montmartre
When you’re here, take advantage of doing the free tour of the Montmartre neighborhood so that you don’t just see this street, but you can explore the area for just over two hours and with a guide in Spanish.
The Dalida square is in a corner of the famous Rue de l’Abreuvoir and from there you have an impressive view of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart . That’s where Emily had a bed installed for a mattress company marketing campaign, intended to invite people to sleep under the stars.
Museum of Foreign Arts
Café de Flore
Perhaps one of the least known places on the Emily route in Paris, it is a private and interactive museum that houses old fairground attractions. Large and elegant parties are usually held here, like the one Emily attended in one of the seasons of the series. It is one of the museums in Paris you must visit.
Address: 53 Av. des Terroirs de France
It is one of the most emblematic places in the city and of course it had to appear in Emily in Paris. The exact date on which it opened is not known, but it dates from 1884 to 1887. In the 1930s it was the favorite place in literary Paris and had regular clients such as Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvior. It is a cafe full of charm.
Address: 172 Boulevard Saint-Germain
The Garnier Opera or also called the Paris Opera was built in 1875 by order of Napoleon III, who entrusted the work to the architect Charles Garnier. It is there that Emily goes to see the opera “Swan Lake”, after meeting Thomas at the Café de Flore. A scene that pays homage to actress Audrey Hepburn.
Address: Place de l’Opéra
Cafe de l’Homme
In season 1 of Emily in Paris, she attends a fancy party at the Palais de Chaillot, on the Place du Trocadero. There is the Museum of the Navy, the Museum of Architecture and the Museum of l’Homme and the cafe where Emily attends the event. From the terrace you have one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower.
Address: 17 Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre
Pont Alexandre III
Many bridges cross the River Seine, but the Alexandre III is one of the most famous. From there you have spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais and it was the place chosen by Emily for the recording of a perfume commercial. It is one of the most photographed Emily in Paris settings.
Pont des Arts
One of the most romantic views of Paris is from the Pont des Arts, where lovers used to leave padlocks as a token of love (it can’t be done anymore). This bridge connects the Louvre Museum with the Institute of France and is where Emily tells her boyfriend over the phone that Paris seems like a dream place.
Address: Quai de Conti – Quai François Mitterrand
Chateau de Sonnay
It is one of Emily’s places in Paris that is not in the city, but in the Loire Valley, three hours from the French capital. It appears in the series as the Château de Lalisse, where Emily visits with Gabriel and Camille.
The Loire Valley is one of the excursions from Paris that you can do in one day and with a guide in Spanish.
Address: Sonnay, 37500 Cravant-les-Côteaux
The Monnaie in Paris
This is one of the oldest locations where Emily was recorded in Paris, since the Mint was founded in the year 864. It appears at the time that Emily is holding a fashion show in its outdoor spaces, surprising everyone with the display from the scene.
Address: 11 Quai de Conti
Le Flore en l’Île
This is one of the best known brasserie/restaurants in Paris. It is very close to the Notre Dame Cathedral and retains that typical Parisian air that makes it very photographable. It’s the place Emily likes to go after work for a glass of wine.
Address: 42 Quai d’Orleans
There are always good excuses to travel to the city of love. While you wait for the premiere of season 4 of Emily in Paris, write down the tours to experience Paris as a couple, treat yourself to boat trips on the Seine River and live the charm of the monuments of Paris so you don’t miss a thing.
