Paris in the Spring is one of my favorite times to visit for so many reasons. There is a buzz in the air after being inside over Winter. The terraces are packed with people from lunch to way past happy hour and the city starts to bloom. It begins with the magnolia blossoms, followed by apple blossoms, cherry blossoms, and then finally chestnut blossoms. Paris is sprinkled with different shades of pink from March through May and it is absolutely beautiful. Don’t forget the white blossom trees and the purple wisteria too.
The Tuileries Gardens
Hôtel de Ville
When I first arrived in Paris, I thought these were cherry blossoms. I had never seen cherry blossoms and I didn’t know what to expect. Apple blossoms are smaller and cherry blossoms are light and fluffy and a lot bigger.
Jardin Des Plantes
Jardin Anne Frank
Shakespeare and Co
Il de la Cité
These will last throughout May and will be around longer than the two week cherry blossoms.
