Jardin du Palais – Royal 

One of the first locations in Paris to show signs of spring. A simply stunning garden, with beautiful magnolias and adorable daffodils blooming before leaves return to the surrounding trees. Experience the intoxicating scent of the magnolias as you stroll around the garden. With whimsical architecture, fountains (perfect place for a petite pause) and statues greeting you with every turn.

By far my favourite garden to explore in Paris, regardless of the season.

Also make sure to wander through the black and white striped Colonnes de Buren whilst visiting, which you can see more of here.

Location:

6 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris

When to visit:

Early to mid – March for daffodils and magnolias. Early to mid – April for tulips.

Jardin des Tuileries

A must visit even if it’s just for a quick stroll whenever you find yourself near the Lourve or Place de la Concorde. Glorious purple Judas trees pop up around the gardens. Surrounded by a bright rainbow of tulips. Take in the beautiful spring blossoms near the perimeter fountains, which are often much less crowded than the two large fountains down the middle of the garden.

You can further indulge your love of flowers at the Musée de l’Orangerie, which is located in the west corner of the garden near Place de la Concorde.  A beautiful space, which is home to impressionist and post – impressionist works, including Monet’s Nymphéas series.

During autumn the leaves on the trees transform into warm shades of red, yellow and brown. Creating a delightful sea of crunchy leaves, which you can experience more of here.

Location:

113 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris

When to visit: 

April for Judas trees and tulips.
