Behind the Scenes at The Elysée Palace

The official residence of the French President, the Elysée Palace, is a mysterious place, never opened to the public. But our cameras will get to discover the goings on in this private mansion.

Security is a top priority here, body guards and commando units protect the President and his ministers, and no information can be allowed to leak out of this place.

Beside the security aspect, the Palace also hosts important events such as meetings with leaders of other countries. We will see the exhaustive preparation for an official dinner with royalty from Sweden. From the flowers to the choice of wine, everything in the Palace must symbolise French refinement. The menu is especially important because many important agreements will be made over the table.
