#Filmtripping as we take a journey around the most iconic film locations of Paris.

#FilmTripping Paris

Discover Paris through the magic of cinema; where coincidence, fiction and reality all coincide.

If there's one thing that unites the 20 arrondisments of Paris, it's cinema. To walk around the French capital is to take a trip through film old and new. Home of la nouvelle vague, it's here, among the bridges, museums and buildings that directors such as Luis Buñuel and the great Truffaut have found their inspiration.

#FilmTripping invites you to enjoy the experience, taking you on a journey around the city's iconic film locations. Click play to see for yourself just how many you recognise.
