It couldn’t have been otherwise: “Emily in Paris” has been filmed in Paris, France since production began (via Deadline). And we’re not just talking about the obvious, self-evident Parisian scenes either: while the show’s exterior scenes are of course largely shot on location at various locations in the French capital, from the world-famous to the lesser-known, interior scenes are in addition shot in France. More specifically, the show is building its sets at the infamous Cité du Cinéma film studio complex in Saint-Denis, a suburban community north of Paris, as reported by Le Figaro.
It only makes sense since this may be the only show currently on the air that’s thriving the most from location, location, location. From Season 1 many of the series’ most central locations, including the apartment complex where Emily lives, Gabriel’s (Lucas Bravo) restaurant and the Boulangerie Moderne bakery – the latter a real place by the way! – were found in or around the Place de l’Estrapade, a famous square in the 5th arrondissement of Paris (via Salut from Paris). The exterior of the Savoir office was filmed on the Place de Valois in central Paris, in a building really a few meters from the Palais-Royal and its famous garden where Emily often has lunch. Additionally, virtually all of the many scenes in which Emily visits cafes and restaurants across the city are shot in authentic Parisian venues.
