One of our favorite places is Square Jean XXIII situated just behind Notre Dame. While the park itself has been closed due to renovations, you can still view the beautiful trees from the bridge just over the river!
While in the area, you can find two trees just outside Shakespear and Co, making this a great stop for a coffee while you take in the views! These trees tend to blossom in early March.
As if the area around the Eiffel tower couldn't be more picturesque, a wander down Champ de Mars between March and April when the cherry trees are in full bloom makes for some magical photos!
On the opposite side of Champ de Mars, with the Eiffel tower still in view, be sure to check out the Jardins du Trocardero for more cherry blossoms with the Eiffel tower backdrop!
In Jardin des plantes you will find Paris’ largest cherry tree. When in full bloom its branches drape onto the floor from the weight of its flowers - it is not to be missed! This tree usually blossoms in the third week of April typically marking the end of Paris' blossom season.
Tucked away behind the l'Institut de France, lays the charming Square Gabriel Pierné, this serene location is usually forgotten about and makes for the perfect location to stop for a while.
The courtyard and cafe of the Petit Palais is a small oasis off the busy Champs Elysee and perfect place to admire the blossoms!
The garden of Palais-Royal is brimming with flowers this time of year, not only for cherry blossoms but large magnolia trees too!
If you have enough time to take a short train ride just outside of Paris, Parc de Sceaux in Spring will not disappoint! The château was built for Louis XIV's minister of finance, and the expansive gardens were designed by André Le Nôtre, the same designer of the gardens of Versailles! While the whole place is definitely worth a visit, if it is cherry trees that you are after you should head straight to the Bosquet Nord section of the park, where they can be found on show in April!
And don't forget, you can also spot beautiful blossoms just in front of our neighbor, Hôtel de Ville!
