Champs de Mars
Jardin du Palais-Royal
This garden in the very center of Paris has the biggest concentration of magnolias in the city.
Jardin des Combattants Espagnols de la Nueve , Hotel de Ville
This tiny garden located next to Hotel de Ville has a couple of magnolias to see.
Parc Floral de Paris
Square Jean XXIII, Notre-Dame de Paris
My favorite place to see and photograph cherry blossom. Gothic architecture of the cathedral and pink sakura make an ideal combo. The most magic moment for me is when pink petals start falling and covering the ground. However, because of its central location, there are always crowds of people in the square.
Shakespeare and Co.
Parc Clichy-Batignolles - Martin-Luther-King
Less crowded and less obvious place to admire the cherry blossom.
Find the courtyard and you’ll see beautiful cherry trees.
Jardin des Plantes
This garden has a giant cherry tree, nobody can miss it ! Its branches are so heavy that they touch the ground . It looks truly magical.
Parc de Sceaux
Square Gabriel Pierné
On the left Bank , hidden behind Institut de France, this small square is a great place to sit and read a book under pink cherry trees. Tourists usually don’t pass here.
Jardins du Trocadéro
I’m sure you’ve already seen the shot of the Eiffel Tower and cherry trees from this angle many times! As you can guess , the concentration of visitors here is unimaginable. It’s better to come in the early morning, at sunrise if you want to have a nice shot.
