A retelling of the classic French story about Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief and a master of disguise, this series has recently released its second season on Netflix! Starring Assane Diop and his quest to avenge his father who was wrongly accused, you’ll get to see the creativity it takes for him to steal and take revenge against Hubert Pelegrini and his accomplices.
As we follow the story, it also takes us through the city of Paris and its iconic locations. For your entertainment at home, we’ll take you to these inspiring locations of Paris featured in the show from the first to second season! Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!
In the first season, we get to see the Louvre Museum becoming the highlight location in the first episode, where Diop stole a prized Diamond Necklace from his enemy during an auction. Fitting for the occasion, the Louvre is the world's largest art museum and one of the iconic landmarks of Paris, an inspiring place for capturing moments too!
After performing his heist in The Louvre, we get to see a heartfelt moment where Diop gives his son a storybook about Lupin which was received from Diop’s father. This happens on the Pont des Arts bridge with the Institut de France building in the background. This historical building is also home to the oldest public library in France!
We see in the last episode of season 1, a chase scene which forced Diop to run for the roofs and escape an assassin attempt. During this scene, we can’t help but notice the Parisian city view and how most of the roofs is coloured in grey. This is one of the unique things about Paris, because most roofs on Parisian buildings are made out of zinc! The view of this metropolis is a sight for you to always remember.
In a blink or you’ll miss moment during season 2 after Diop rescued his son and escaped, they passed by the Palais Garnier building which is one of the most famous opera houses in the world. The well preserved and timeless architecture gives off a majestic feel suitable for every moment.
Cafes are central to the social and culinary life in Paris, and a moment in Paris won’t be complete without visiting one. From the first to the second season it is often shown as a regular place for the characters to meet. For instance, during the second season Diop catches up with his best friend and partner in crime Ben at a cafe, before revealing his plan to trick Hubert Pelegrini’s daughter.
