Then it's time to discover just where the top spots are to go in the beautiful French capital!If you're a fan of the award-winning French flick Amelie - full title Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain - then you've come to the right place. Fans of the film will remember how magical and mesmerising Paris appeared through the eyes of Amelie and you can see it all for yourself during your visit. The famous Notre Dame de Paris is top of the list for seeing the spot where Amelie's mother was killed by a falling Parisian during Amelie's childhood but, if you really want to see more intimate locations from this film, head to 56 Rue de Trois Freres - also known as Amelie's apartment building.

Parisian locations used in the film include the Theatre Vrai Guignolet where our heroes meet one another, which is located at the junction of avenue Matignon and avenue Gabriel in the Jardins des Champs Élysées, Rond Point des Champs Élysées. The Punch and Judy show is still running, so don't miss the opportunity to see it for yourself!While you're in the Champs Elysées, you can hunt down the location that was used in scenes of Breathless, the 1959 tour de force by Jean-Luc Godard.
You can also spot Breathless backgrounds at Saint Germain, and 11 Rue Campagne Première - the street where main character Michel is run down at the end of the film.There's a lot to get through when it comes to movie locations in the capital of France and you could find yourself looking into Paris car rental in order to ensure you get around everywhere in time.
