Paris, France
In A View To A Kill, there was a sequence filmed in Paris, France. In it, James Bond had lunch with Achille Aubergine in the Resturant Jules Verne atop the Eiffel Tower.

After Aubergine was killed by May Day, Bond chased her up the stairs of the Eiffel Tower.

She caught him off guard and wrapped some kind of wire around his legs. While he was busy untying himself, May Day continued in her escape and made her way to the top of the Eiffel Tower and parachuted off.
For once, Bond didn't have a parachute with him, so he took the next fastest way down: the top of the elevator. Once down, he stole a car and drove it around; still following May Day's parachute. He ended up in this bridge

which he proceeded to jump off of and into a wedding boat. The wedding boat was most likley a part of the Bateaux Mouches company that has dinner boats that run up and down the Seine river.

During my trip to Paris I also discovered a few Bond-related items of interest. At Versailles, I discovered that people in France like to drive Melina Havelock's car of choice: the Citroen. I also found an Aston Martin dealer in Ave. Felix Faure in the 15th Arridosmont.

I also found that Bond girls were on the covers of popular French magazines. Carole Bouquet (Melina Havelock) was on the cover of DS Magazine, and Jane Seymore (Solitaire) was on the cover of TeleStar.
