Do you remember an episode from the movie, when one night Gil gets lost and sits on some church steps while he was wandering around the city, then as a bell rings midnight, a big old Peugeot show up filled with revellers and Gil was invited to join the fun?

I know where this spot is. We found it when we visited Paris.

It is the Church of St Etienne du Mont, rue de la Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, Paris. Just a 13-minute walk from Notre-Dame de Paris.

I hope the map will be helpful for you, and you can easily find this spot and absolutely beautiful church, which you can visit as well.

Enjoy your future trip to Paris and have fun!
