The city's elegant streets, world-famous landmarks, and natural beauty are the perfect setting for stories about people falling in love. The visual majesty of romantic films showing Paris heightens the emotions of the stories being told. In some cases, viewers might even feel inspired to hop on a plane and go there, just to visit the sites where certain movie scenes take place. Some of these films are romcoms while others are dramas but they are the best romance movies set in Paris.
