Emily in Paris is back with another season, and this time, it’s full of new spots in Paris we love. Journalist Emy Rodriguez Flores shares five of our favorites below that were featured at crucial moments within this Netflix series. ⬇️
Located in the first arrondissement directly in front of the Louvre Museum, La Samaritaine is one department store you don’t want to miss. Finished in 1910 and has gone through multiple iterations (and owners) throughout the years, including a sixteen-year closure, the department is featured heavily in season two’s fourth episode, where Emily unknowingly shoplifts.
Known as an old world-charm lover’s paradise, The Marais has some of Paris’s most popular galleries and cafes. Dividing the 3rd and 4th arrondissements and inside The Marais, Place des Vosges is the oldest planned square in the city. It’s featured during the heatwave episodes where Mindy and Benoît finally share a picnic-based kiss.
This 5-star hotel is nestled on avenue Montaigne, and in 1946, Christian Dior opened his first boutique on the same street, creating a sort of partnership over the years that still exists today. Located steps from Champs-Élysées and the Palais de Tokyo, it’s the perfect place to soak in Parisian culture and stay in authentically chic lodgings.
Audiences finally learned the definition behind busking when the Fontaine Saint-Michel was featured in episode four of the new season. It’s even more significant due to its creation during the reconstruction of Paris during the French Second Empire. Mindy Chen, played by Ashley Park, is invited to sing directly in front of the fountain, ensuring excellent acoustics.
Emily has an awkward conversation with Camille in Episode 5 at Tortuga Galeries, an upscale rooftop restaurant that overlooks Palais Garnier opera house. Perhaps confrontation is better with an Eiffel Tower view?
