In Paris, all four seasons are beautiful, but spring is definitely my favorite season. Not only because it’s getting warmer, the days are getting longer and we can spend our evenings on a terrace, but I’m a huge fan of cherry blossoms, which are in bloom from mid-March till late-April.
If you are coming to Paris within a few weeks, I’m sure you can still spot the cherry blossoms, otherwise, maybe it will be something for on your bucket list next year?
These are the best spots to see cherry blossoms in the city:
Square Jean XXIII, park next to the Notre Dame (Update: closed till further order)
4 parvis Notre-Dame – Pl. Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris
