Place Dauphine

Blink and you may very well miss this delightful square on the western end of the Île de la Cité.

If you’re after a quiet rest spot and like to indulge in some people watching (including the odd game of Boule) this place is for you.

Location:

The western end of the Île de la Cité near Pont Neuf.

When to visit: 

Mid to late April for peak bloom of the chestnut trees, which fill the square with gorgeous pops of colour.
