Paris, France

As seen in: Midnight in Paris (2011)

Woody Allen's Oscar-nominated romantic comedy, with Owen Wilson as the awkward, rambling protagonist, offers a glimpse of Paris's glamorous creative elite in the 1920s. Even without fantastical appearances by Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, the city has magical effects. In the film, free-spirit Gil, played by Wilson, stays with his perturbed fiancée Inez (Rachel McAdams) and her right-wing parents at the luxury hotel Le Bristol on the Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré. For a culture fix, Musée Rodin makes a memorable appearance in the film, partially due to a cameo by France's First Lady, Carla Bruni, who plays a museum guide.
