2. Jardin du Palais Royale

This is where Emily (Lily Collins) bumps into her expat friend Mindy when her colleagues evade her at lunch. This is a scenic park where you can walk around, people-watch, sit back on a bench, unwind and enjoy the quintessentially French pain, vin et fromage (bread, wine and cheese).

4. La Maison Rose

Set in one of the prettiest and Instagrammable locales in Paris, Montmatre is La Maison Rose - the pink restaurant exuding major 'La vie en rose' vibes. It's where Emily vents to Mindy that her boss is compelling her to delete her social media account. Apart from this restaurant, a lot of other eateries make an appearance- Café de Flore (where Emily meets her first boyfriend, Thomas), Les Deux Comperes (where Emily's hot neighbour is the head chef) and Boulangerie Moderne (Emily's go-to bakery for breakfast on-the-go).

5. Pont Alexandre III

An ornate and beautiful bridge overlooking the Seine, this is where Emily gives an opinionated take on a controversial perfume commercial that her agency is working on. Although, the scene is shot during the day, this bridge is perfect for an evening stroll at sunset.
