Not to be confused with ''WesternAnimation/GayPurree'', who's title is a pun on this trope.

* ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' provides one of the greatest aversions, though there are still passages in the novel where the trope is played straight.

* ''Film/{{Elle}}'' gives us one EstablishingShot showing the Île de la Cité and Notre Dame, otherwise the film shows only typical urban neighborhoods which could be in any French city, really.

* In ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', the second half of Act I and all of Act II is set in Paris, but the musical frequently highlights the grittiest, grimiest, bloodiest parts of the city due to the low economic station of much of the cast and the nature of the revolution. The 2012 adaptation was similarly dirty (the sewer sequence, for example, was ''much'' dirtier than what is physically possible on stage), although areas set in the wealthier parts of the city ("Do You Hear the People Sing", for example, or anything set at Rue Plumet), featured the architectural styles, romance, and general cleanliness usually associated with this trope. Neither the Eiffel Tower nor the Arc de Triomphe were featured (the former because it hadn't been built yet, and the latter because it simply didn't need to be), and the most iconic Paris landmarks are the Seine river and the Elephant of the Bastille.

* Creator/GeorgeOrwell's first novel, ''Down and Out in Paris and London'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: the fist half is all about him living a hand-to-mouth existence in Paris, eventually becoming a ''plongeur'' (dishwasher) in two different posh restaurants, where he can see the world of overworked, underpaid workers necessary to maintain "GayParee."
