There's no denying that Paris is one of the world’s prettiest cities—the French capital’s romantic waterfront and famous landmarks have starred in dozens of movies, TV shows, and ads. Here are some of the best ways to experience Paris' movie magic.
While in the City of Light, visit famous sites from films such as Moulin Rouge, Marie Antoinette, The Bourne Identity, Amélie, and James Bond. With the help of a knowledgeable tour guide, you can stop by the Shakespeare and Company bookstore from Before Sunset; the restaurant where Julia Childs dines in Julie & Julia; the street where Andy and Christian kiss in The Devil Wears Prada; and the Louvre, which makes an appearance in The Da Vinci Code.
- Journey back to the Roaring Twenties on a Paris movie tour of Montmartre.
- Pop into the Café des 2 Moulins, made famous in Oscar-nominated Amélie.
- Learn about Paris' famous art district and the many films shot there on a visit to the real Moulin Rouge.
- Tour Le Grand Rex, one of the world's oldest and most luxurious cinemas. You'll go behind the scenes at the Art Deco palace, peeking into the director's office and projection room, sitting in the impressive auditorium (one of the largest in Europe), and even adding a voiceover to a film clip.
