Paris in the snow is pure magic! It happens just rarely enough to be a real treat when Paris turns white with snow. The rooftops all covered in white, the blanket of snow stretching across the Champ de Mars gardens crisscrossed with footprints and the warm lights of the cafés in the wintry street scenes. Waking up in the morning to find such a scene just outside the balcony window is a wonderful surprise. I like to bundle up with my scarf and a hot cappuccino and enjoy the crisp winter air and the muted sounds of the city in the snow. The Eiffel Tower seems lost in a dreamlike haze – lightly dusted in snow against the wintry sky.
After breakfast there's no better way to experience the magic of Paris in the snow than taking a walk! As the snowflakes fell we took a stroll around the Champ de Mars gardens and made sure the Eiffel Tower was still there and that it wasn't all a dream. There is just something about seeing the Eiffel Tower in the snow – we'll never get tired of the view!
There were a lot of couples out walking in the snow and enjoying the wintry romance of Paris. All of the major sights in Paris become even more romantic with a blanket of winter white – the boats along the Seine, the beautiful bridges across the river, the grand Tuileries gardens and the bright white of the Sacré Coeur church atop Montmarte against the winter sky.
The snow is even more enjoyable when you're in good company! Crunching through the snowy streets and parks, stopping to warm up with a coffee or vin chaud and letting the snow infuse your day with its magic.
We were out enjoying Paris in the snow with the lovely Ann from Huff Harrington, and we were joking around because their ads always show Ann and Meg making funny poses. So we decided to duplicate them in Paris!
While we were out walking through the snowy parks in Paris a bicycle whooshed by in the snow. Not even a snowy day can keep the Parisians from their bikes! We decided walking was not only the safer option, but also the best way to slowly take in the beautiful winter scenery in Paris.
We hope you'll have the chance to enjoy the magic and fun of Paris in the snow one day soon!
