Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris elegantly captures the spirit of 1920s and a glimpse into the marvellous and legendary Belle Époque.
Woody takes us on a wildly imaginative journey where we meet all the famous writers, composers and painters of the Jazz Age in Paris – Ernest Hemingway, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Cole Porter, Pablo Picasso, Salvadore Dali and Gertrude Stein.
The film starts with a dazzling selection of Paris locations and sets up the scene starting in Le Bristol, one of Paris' most luxurious hotels. Woody Allen spends almost as much care and attention to the Paris locations as he does to the actors' performances.
The stairs where Gil goes nightly to catch his magic car ride to the past.
It's become a place to see in Paris and many Woody Allen fans (and Owen Wilson fans) pay tribute to the location at the church of Saint-Etienne-du-Mort behind the Pantheon.
Le Meurice is the setting for the rooftop terrace wine tasting, where Michael Sheen gives his famous wine tasting speech. The Belle Etoile Royal Suite at the Meurice clocks in at over 15,000€ per night!

Hotel Le Bristol first opened its doors in 1925.
In Midnight in Paris, this luxury hotel is the Paris base for Gil (Owen Wilson), his fiancée (Rachel McAdams) and her parents.
Woody Allen manages to give us a taste of the good life throughout the film and has chosen some of the most luscious locations in Paris.
Maxim's de Paris, famous for its Belle Époque décor, is where Gil and Adriana (Marion Cotillard) pay a visit to the 1890s.

Great scene where the former First Lady of France (and former rock-and-roll groupie), Carla Bruni gives a believable portrayal as a museum curator.
A very romantic scene on the famous Japanese bridge. Only Woody Allen could get Giverny for himself for a day to shoot the "I love you" scene with Gil and Inez.
Palace of Versailles. A spectacular showing of the Sun King's sumptuous palace.
Pont Alexandre III is the bridge where Gil meets Gabrielle. One of most beautiful bridges in Paris, it connects the Grand Palais and Petit Palais on the Right Bank with Hotel des Invalides on the Left Bank.
