Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks)

The Ritz Hotel Paris welcomes Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) within its walls for a few days while he tries to solve puzzles about The Da Vinci Code.

The Hotel Ritz Paris is his starting point to follow the invisible line of the meridian but also to discover the tomb of Mary Magdalene, a disciple of Jesus who followed his last days and his Resurrection.


L’année où Da Vinci Code fit l’ouverture du Festival de Cannes.

Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code, was released in March 2003 in the United States and was so successful that Colombia bought the rights in June 2003. Well, it was good for him, since the film had $850 million in total revenues.

Ritz Paris

Considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, the Hotel Ritz Paris is located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris.

Inaugurated in 1898, the Hotel Ritz Paris was born from the will of the Swiss hotel owner César Ritz and Auguste Escoffier, the famous chef-restaurateur.

From the moment it opened, the establishment was equipped with all the comforts of the time: water and electricity on all floors, elevators, bathroom and telephone in all rooms.

The Ritz Paris hotel was listed as a historical monument in 1930. Many personalities are welcomed within its walls: Colette, Marcel Proust, Jean Cocteau, Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin…

During the German occupation of the Second World War, part of the hotel was requisitioned. Herman Göring settles in particular in the imperial suite.

Today, the Ritz Paris has 142 rooms including 56 suites and 15 prestige suites.
