Discovering Paris by walking on the trail of film locations is an extra special adventure when you set out from the Hotel Britannique. From the Louvre to the Opéra, the beautiful and evocative settings of Paris have always attracted the greatest filmmakers. If you have enjoyed movies such as The Da Vinci Code, The Devil Wears Prada, Midnight In Paris and La Vie En Rose then why not tour the Parisian locations where your favourites were filmed and walk in the footsteps of the stars?
Discovering Paris through cinematic journeys across the capital
The twists and turns of The Da Vinci Code required quite some concentration, but even if you don’t recall all the details of the plot you will surely remember the finding of the body of Jacques Saunière in the Grand Gallery of the Louvre. You will also recall Professor Langdon, as played by Tom Hanks, unravelling clues by the great glass pyramid which stands before that world famous national museum, and he and his companion Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou) admiring the Seine from the Pont du Carrousel.
The incredible visual appeal of Paris has captured the imagination of many a film maker, and subsequently many an audience. The Place de la Concorde featured in a pivotal moment in The Devil Wears Prada. The world famous Olympia concert venue was one of the settings for Marion Cotillard’s Oscar winning performance in the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie En Rose. The Paris of 1912 was the period in which The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec, adapted from the great Jacques Tardi comic book, took place. If you’ve seen this Luc Besson directed whimsical gem you will want to see the Pont Royal, the third oldest bridge across the Seine, where the newly hatched pterodactyl appears!
