There certainly has been a lot of buzz floating around recently about the latest Netflix release, Emily in Paris. The show triggered several controversies about the way that Americans portray Parisians, which has resulted in some minor backlash. Whether or not you've decided to join the bandwagon in binging, one thing is certain: this series has become quite a hit. We'll be the first to admit, sometimes getting caught up in dramatised movies and series helps take our mind away from reality for a bit — especially when the setting takes place somewhere we're fantasizing to return to.
Since Paris is such a widely-adored destination for many young travelers, we've decided to build a mini-guide to help you discover some of the key places that were used in the series.
You can start by visiting the neighborhood where Emily lives. Her maid's room is in the 5th arrondissement, at number 1, Place de l'Estrapade. This location is close to the Pantheon.
In this same district, you will also notice the restaurant Terra Nera strongly resembling the restaurant Les Deux Compères, where the neighbor works. It is indeed the same establishment that was simply renamed for the series.
To stay on the theme restaurant, next you can head to 42 Quai d'Orleans in the 4th arrondissement. This is the cafe where Emily sits before being joined by her colleague, Luc, and his scooter.
To visit the district where Emily works, you can head to the first arrondissement, not far from the Louvre museum and the Royal Palace.
The Savoir agency is in fact located at 6 Place de Valois, one of the chicest squares in the city. At this arrondissement, we also saw the gardens of the Royal Palace throughout the episodes, where Emily meets her friend regularly at the famous, Place Vendôme.
You might have also recognized the Pont Alexandre III, where the release of the perfume took place.
Finally, last but not least, the featured bakery where you can taste delicious pain au chocolat. The Boulanderie Moderne is located at 16 Rue de Fosses Saint-Jacques, right next to the Terra Nera restaurant.
