TV shows that take place in beautiful European places

Emily and ParisNetflix

The titular Emily of Emily and Parisplayed by Lily Collins, may be the exact type of traveler you cross the Seine to avoid if you actually was In Paris. With a beret bought at the airport, Emily is not a sympathetic character, but somehow the Netflix comedy is much enjoyable. Seeing Emily fall for the heartbreaker Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) while also trying (and failing) to master the language is quite charming, plus the show delivers a postcard version of Paris, all the cobbled streets and croissants.

RivieraSBS on Demand

The night leader, Prime video

The night leader is basically the TV version of a Contiki journey, where each episode takes viewers to an exciting new place, including Zurich, Mallorca, Madrid, Monaco and London. Tom Hiddleston plays Jonathan Pine, a hotel manager who is dragged into a world of international arms trade after an affair with a hotel guest.

Normal people, Stan

Everything about the little screen adaptation of Sally Rooney’s bestselling book was beautiful: the cast, the dialogue, the sexy and most importantly, the locations. If you are looking for rolling green hills, County Sligo in rural Ireland served as the backdrop for the beginnings of Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell’s (Paul Mescal) love story.

Halfway through the series, we had a stopover in Lule√•, a rugged coastal town in Swedish Lapland, before heading to Marianne’s family holiday home in Trieste in northeastern Italy in episode eight.

If you feel particularly inspired, you can book the real villa that served as Marianne’s home, Il Casale Tenuta Verzano, which is located among the picturesque hills of Sant’Oreste (about an hour north of Rome by car) and only costs about $ 70 per. night on Airbnb.
