If you haven’t already, you need to watch Emily in Paris especially to fuel your wanderlust. While we have already binge-watched the romantic comedy series that just released on Netflix, here are a few places that got featured on the show that made us fall in love with Paris once again!

1. Le Maison Rose
This one had already been making the rounds on Instagram with its pink-walls and green shutters. Set in a quaint corner in Montmarte, Le Maison Rose is famous for its seasonal specials like salmon in garlic saffron aioli and cheesecake with seasonal fruits. Whether it’s the ambience or the food, this one is already a favourite for us and Emily in Paris totally sealed the deal.
2. Boulangerie Moderne by Thierry Rabineau
Whether its pain au chocolate or fresh-out-of-the-oven croissants, this artisanal bakery on Rue Des Fosses Saint Jacques was a favourite spot for Emily and rightly so. The chic bakery is so good that Emily cut short her morning run to devour the bakery’s goods and we would have done the same thing.
3. Jardin du Luxembourg
Frequented by Emily for her morning runs, this 25-hectare (approx. 61 acres) park is replete with sprawling gardens, magnificent ponds, fountains and a gorgeous pavilion — some of the many things that make the city what it is. Apart from getting a workout, the park is the perfect spot to enjoy a brunch date or picnic on a beautiful sunny day.
4. Palais Garnier
Now, this one needs no introduction. Also known as Opéra Garnier, this 1,979-seat opera house has been featured in several movies well before Emily in Paris. But the show reminded us of how extraordinary the historic house is. Be it a walk through the Foyer de la Danse, admiring Marc Chagall’s ceiling, walking by the paintings in Grand Foyer, or enjoying an interactive experience, there is something for everyone who arrives here.
