    Number 3 Avenue Matignon

    Pay wave

    The exterior of the building at Number 3 avenue Matignon, on your left, appears briefly in "Paris When It Sizzles." Stop for a moment and look up at it.

    This building is supposed to be where the screenwriter has his ornate two-storey apartment. The interior scenes were, of course, filmed on a studio sound stage.

    In the windows above the ground floor, you will see the hair salon of Alexandre de Paris. Alexandre helped create Audrey's look, particularly her chic styles in "Charade" and "How to Steal a Million." This location dates from 1982, so Audrey would either have visited his original salon on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, or he would have worked his magic in a salon provided by the film-makers.

    The tour continues in the gardens on the other side of the street. Retrace your steps as far as the pedestrian crossing, then enter the gardens by the gravel path. Keep to the left.
