Only a few places remain today and tomorrow (July 11-12) for a Netflix walking tour in Paris, to view the real-life filming locations of hit TV shows Lupin and Emily in Paris.
The free two-hour walking tour, which is running from today until Sunday, July 17, is available in English, French, or Spanish, and can be booked online here.
Just a few ‘seats’ remain for this afternoon and tomorrow morning.
The tour promises to take visitors “through the eyes of your favourite Netflix characters…through some of Paris’ most important landmarks, including Luxembourg Gardens, the Latin Quarter, the Panthéon, Notre-Dame and Pont Neuf”.
It also includes Place Saint-Michel, the Louvre museum, and the Pont des Arts. Ticketholders will meet at the pond in Luxembourg Gardens and continue from there.
Locations include those seen in Emily in Paris, Lupin, and Notre-Dame, la part du feu. The tour also promises that visitors will also “learn about the history of the film and entertainment industry in the French capital”.
The tour is a collaboration between streaming giant Netflix and the specialist tour guide company Sandemans New Europe.
Paris is not the only city where filming location tours are offered. In France, there are also tours in Étretat (Seine-Maritime) and Saint-Tropez (Var), again for the shows Emily in Paris and Lupin.
However, some residents in Étretat have said that tourist visits to the famous cliffs should be limited, calling for better management of the 1.2 million who visit every year.
Netflix also offers tours in other countries, including in Madrid for fans of the shows La Casa de Papel, Élite and Las Chicas del Cable, as well as visits in London, Oxford and Bath for the shows Bridgerton, Scandal, and Enola Holmes.
Figures released by Netflix show that in 2022, more than 70% of activity on the platform was from subscribers watching a series based somewhere other than their own home country.
It said: “Netflix subscribers are 2.4 times more likely to say that the site of a title they watched is their number one [wished-for] travel destination.”
A research study for Netflix found that viewers’ interest in the history of the countries that feature in their favourite series increases by 25% as a result of watching.
Interest in local food and drink also increases by 26%.
