It's spring and Paris awakens. After a long winter spent hibernating, Parisians emerge on café terraces, parks, and the banks of the Seine. Swap your beret for sunglasses and discover all the romantic, cultural, delicious, and playful things Paris has to offer in springtime. Here are 9 good reasons to visit the magical and authentic Paris, whose cobblestones the whole world dreams of treading

#1 Have a Picnic

Bring out your most beautiful checkered tablecloth and a wicker basket because springtime in Paris is an invitation to picnics. Climb up to the heights of the Buttes-Chaumont to have a bite to eat with friends and admire the thousands of flowering trees. Watch out for the bottles, as the ground slopes! You can also descend the hill and settle by the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin. Watch your reflection in the Geode, a geodisc dome that houses a cinema. Don't forget your fresh baguette and your playlist from the movie 'Amélie Poulain' for a total immersion. You can also walk along the canal to La Villette and spread your tablecloth on the lawns of this decidedly urban park. Are you in western Paris? Head to the Bois de Boulogne. Settle on the green lawns or lie down under the trees, or have lunch near the roses in the beautiful Parc de Bagatelle.

#2 Basking in the Warmth of the Sun

When the sun finally returns, there's only one desire: to soak up some vitamin D. Paris in springtime harbors the most beautiful spots for basking under the first rays or for reading in the sun. In the Tuileries, you stroll between the Louvre and the Champs-Élysées, a dream for every self-respecting tourist. Pause to admire the 'Royal Way,' this perspective that starts from the Louvre to La Défense, passing through the Tuileries garden. Cross to the Left Bank to lounge in the Luxembourg Gardens. At 'Luco,' sit on a green chair facing the small boats pushed by children, and experience the true Paris in spring. Prefer to walk while enjoying the good weather? Head to the Coulée Verte, also known as the Promenade Plantée. This walk in the air on an old railway line will show you Paris from another point of view, passing through lawns, under pergolas, and between buildings.
