Autumn in Paris on Instagram


Paris in Autumn: here is a selection of 20 photos we took over the last couple of months in the City of Lights. All photos were initially posted on our Instagram account.

Discovering Paris in Autumn is arguably the best season to do so when the crowds of visitors have long gone and the places are left to locals and lucky visitors. Some of Paris’ most charming sights become even more attractive with Autumn colours. Rediscovering the French capital in Autumn is often breathtaking, particularly under a deep blue sky. The city is then enhanced by colourful tints in Autumn, thanks to the many trees found bordering its wide avenues or planted in one of its beautiful public gardens. We recommend visiting Parc MonceauJardin du Luxembourg, Buttes-Chaumont or Parc de Saint-Cloud.
