Paris is arguably the most romantic city in the world, so it's no surprise that many movies have been filmed there. Its famous sites and cobblestone streets make for beautiful backdrops. If you're yearning for a trip to the City of Light, flip on one of these movies for a delightful escape to Paris.

Midnight in Paris (2011)

"Gil Pender is a screenwriter and aspiring novelist. Vacationing in Paris with his fiancee, he has taken to touring the city alone. On one such late-night excursion, Gil encounters a group of strange—yet familiar—revelers, who sweep him along, apparently back in time, for a night with some of the Jazz Age's icons of art and literature. The more time Gil spends with these cultural heroes of the past, the more dissatisfied he becomes with the present." –IMDb

Amélie (2001)

"Amélie is a shy waitress in a Montmartre café. After returning a long-lost childhood treasure to a former occupant of her apartment, and seeing the effect it has on him, she decides to set out on a mission to make others happy and in the meantime pursues a quirky guy who collects discarded photo booth pictures." –IMdb

Before Sunset (2004)

"Jesse, a writer from the U.S., and Celine, a Frenchwoman working for an environment protection organization, acquainted nine years ago on the train from Budapest to Vienna, meet again when Jesse arrives in Paris for a reading of his new book. As they have only a few hours until his plane leaves, they stroll through Paris, talking about their experiences, views and whether they still love each other, although Jesse is already married with a kid." –IMDb
