On the occasion of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, of which Fraser Suites le Claridge is a privileged partner, we had selected for you 7 movie scenes which highlight the beauty of Paris.
To close this series, we wanted to suggest you a stroll around Paris to discover the film locations and suspend time for an instant.

1. Seuls Two – Champs-Elysées Avenue
Let’s start the visit just at the foot of Fraser Suites le Claridge: imagine you found yourself alone on Paris most famous and busy Avenue. It belongs to you.
And to figure out how long and impressive the Avenue is, climb the 284 stairs of the Arc de Triomphe and embrace Paris at a glance.
2. Amelie – Montmartre
Amelie Poulain has definitely put into light one of the most bucolic quarters of Paris. More than a place, it represents a lifestyle. Just walk along the tiny streets, climb until the top and the Sacré Coeur to admire the view, and maybe play the game of love.
3. Da Vinci Code – Louvre Pyramids
Solve the mystery of Louvre pyramids and their amazing geometrical architecture. Then try to count the number of glass windows, you will maybe learn more about the pyramids secrets.
And to make the most of the visit, enter in the museum hall and find the inverted pyramid.
4. Hugo Cabret – Orsay Museum
Inspired by several Paris train stations, the movie décor has just existed in the director’s imagination.
But there is a place where you can delight in overlooking Paris through the former train station clock: Orsay Museum. To have a unique point of view towards Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur.
5. Inception – Eiffel Tower
By metro or on foot, Bir Hakeim bridge is an enchanting and unique place to admire Eiffel Tower.
Then, cross the metallic footbridge and access to the Champ de Mars to go to the nearest of the “Iron Lady”. And for the bravest, enjoy an amazing view of Paris while drinking a glass of Champagne at the top of Eiffel Tower.
6. Marie-Antoinette – Versailles
For an instant, live the royal life and follow in the footsteps of French queens and kings.
Walk around the sumptuous gardens “à la française” and go through the legendary Hall of Mirrors to capture the magic of this magnificent place.
7. The Aristocats – Paris rooftops
What is better after a busy day than spending a privileged moment with your beloved and share all your impressions and memories of the day? So just come back home at Fraser Suites le Claridge and have a seat on the balcony of your Suite to marvel at the sun rising above Paris rooftops.
