Tourists visit historical monuments because of their history, but also because they discovered them through the cinema. But the filming locations that producers choose throughout Paris are very varied. One can mention for example the temples of haute couture, Parisian districts, restaurants, avenues, palaces or even quays. The films that bring emotions to the public become mythical because the history around them gives them atmosphere. An ordinary place of origin can thus become emblematic thanks to the cinema. Many cult films have been shot in the 8th arrondissement, such as "Mission Impossible 6" or "A bout de souffle" by Godard. This is where the Hotel Saint Honoré Paris resides, in the heart of the 8th arrondissement, a favourite place for filmmakers.
In the various offers presented by agencies specialising in tourism in Paris, they now include the discovery of the 7th art. This consists of backstage visits to films, for example through walks or treasure hunts. We try to exploit the film industry in all its aspects by means of guided tours, studio visits or film set tours. At the same time, this makes it possible to promote destinations that are little frequented by tourists. If you are staying at the Hotel Saint Honoré Paris in the 8th arrondissement, you can easily find agencies that offer stopovers on film tours.
If you only have a few days to visit Paris, and above all to enjoy what film-tourism is all about, bear in mind that the place where you will be staying is all about saving time. Therefore, prefer an area where you can save time rather than money. If the 8th arrondissement is a district that attracts many tourists during the year, it is because it offers various attractions, especially in the world of cinema. The Hotel Saint Honoré Paris, located in the 8th district, offers you the possibility to visit everything, if your stay is shortened. In addition, our hotel builds customer loyalty with its formula of accommodation at mini prices with a quality service. For comfort at a lower price, come to us!
