Walk through the Cherry Blossoms at Beautiful Park Sceaux
About 45 minutes outside of Paris there is an enormous park full of flowers, a chateau, and grass for miles. I love it and find it more beautiful and peaceful than the one in Versailles.
However, it can be very crowded in the Cherry Blossom part of the park. Try to go earlier in the morning if you can to visit the sea of pink trees. Then, spend the rest of the morning and afternoon walking the premises and having a picnic in the grass near the canal.
Duration: half day
Pricing: €6 (round trip with the RER public transport) Directions: Use RER B, direction Robinson, get off at Sceaux
Make a quick trip to Giverny to see Monet's Gardens
Spring time and flowers! This is the perfect spot to see all the fresh blooms and there are irises everywhere! You'll get to see the famous bridge featured in Monet's paintings and see where he spent a lot of time. Walk through his house and his gardens, and finish up at the gift shop. And this gift shop is amazing, it is one of my favorite, I always buy something every time I visit. There are so many cute new items with all the flowers you would have just seen in the field. If you have time, you can walk even further to see the hay bales from some of his other paintings and hike up to see where he is buried. There is a street of little shops and a few cafés along the way. Great way to spend wholesome morning.
Duration: half day
Pricing: €18 train ticket (round trip), €10 bus ticket, €13 entry fee
Directions: Head to Gare Saint Lazare and grab the train direction Vernon, which is also the final stop where you'll catch the bus to the gardens. The bus is decorated with Monet's water lilies and you can buy tickets on the bus.
