The Da Vinci Code (2006)

A personal favourite of mine, The Da Vinci Code manages to snag one of the most notable Paris filming locations: The Louvre Museum. Housing several of Leonardo Di Vinci’s works, it’s pivotal to the film’s narrative.

Marie Antoinette (2006)

The ultimate chick flick, Marie Antoinette is one of the most inspired biopics in years. Often using the real Palace of Versailles as a filming location, the authenticity outweighs the film’s artistic embellishments.

Midnight in Paris (2011)

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that Midnight in Paris (2010) is the next best thing to actually being in the city. The film is more like a tourist travel guide at times so there are rather a few stand-out filming locations.

    Hi – I’m very intrigued by this, and love that you included a map. However – it would be a BIG help if the map itself also had some notes for each place, that mention what film they’re for (for example, the map for Au Marche de Butte just says “Au Marche de Butte”, but it might be helpful if it said “Au Marche de Butte – market in AMELIE”). Any chance that could be added someday?

      Hi Kim! Thanks so much for your comment – I think luckily I may have already done this! So, all Amelie locations on this map are in blue. If you look at the map, you’ll see a square icon with a tiny arrow to the left of where it says ‘Paris Filming Locations.’ If you click this, a list of the locations split up by film should appear in the column on the left-hand side – and Amelie is the first film on the list. I hope that helps!

      Likewise, if you just search ‘Amelie’ on my site (and there is a link to it in this blog post too), I do have a blog post that is just lists the Amelie filming locations and there is a map on that post too 🙂 Let me know if you can’t find what you’re looking for and I’ll try to assist further!

    Absolutely loved this series of posts Rebecca, they’re like my dream life! 😂
    Sadly I have never gone to Paris. Hope to in the future, and when I do, I’ll definitely come back to these posts for spotting film locations! I mean, having them on the maps and everything – well done!

    • Rebecca says:

      Haha, thank you SO much Sofia! It did cross my mind more than once “why am I putting so much work into these no one will use them 🙈” but I enjoyed making them. I hope you make it to Paris someday. I’m sure you will, it’s definitely a doable goal!
