Below, we present the 50 best films set in Paris, organised by era. Be they Nouvelle Vague masterpieces or populist comedies, the capital is always in the starring role. Romance blooms on a belle époque street corner. A dark-eyed girl in Montmartre runs her hand through a bag of dried beans. In the suburbs, Arabs square up to skinheads. Nicotine-stained tales of sexual misadventure unfold in beds all over the city, while gangsters commit crimes and cartoon rats cook up a storm. Paris, which boasts a higher concentration of picture houses than any other city, has been the inspiration and the backdrop for countless films.
The Paris Walking Tour: Movie and TV Show Locations takes you through all these film-famous spots and more, over a guided 2-hour tour. What better way to relive Charade, The Bourne Identity, or even, The Three Muskateers?
