Paris in the Fall has to be one of my favorite times. The air turns crisp and the green ivy turns to red. There are so many beautiful pops of color around the city. This will be my first October not in Paris in a few years but the good news is I will be back in early November. I can’t wait. Until then here are a few of my favorite Fall images from Paris.

The past few visits in Paris the gardens in the Rodin Museum have been under construction. Parts have been open but it hasn’t been free of construction for a while. This past visit I was thrilled to be able to walk around the gardens and enjoy the greenery and warm weather. If you get a chance to visit the inside admission is 5 euros I believe but its only 1 euro to visit the gardens. I would add it to your list!
We had the most beautiful warm October here in Paris. I have heard rumors it was the warmest on record for a long while. It was an extended Indian Summer. Just last week I took photos on the Seine and it was dress weather! Overnight the weather turned chilly this week as the calendar changed to November. It tends to do that. I explored a new little area of Montmartre yesterday before the rain and cold came in. I just adore this little street.
Its been an exciting first week in Paris. I have enjoyed exploring my neighborhood meeting with new friends and catching up with old ones. The fall is turning quickly here and its been a mix of sun and rain but I am thrilled to be back. Tomorrow I am off to Roma and exploring Italy. You can find me on instagram as I travel and photograph some of my favorite places.
I woke up to rain in Paris. It surprises me how much rain can actually fall in one city… I walk everyday no matter what so I didn’t let it stop me. We luckily had a few hours of sunshine this afternoon where I strolled through Ile St Louis picked up some raspberry ice cream from Berthillon and made my way to St Germain.
I have talked about the season in Paris before but its really interesting to see the way the trees frame the architecture. In the Spring you will notice certain buildings because of the blossoms, in the winter the trees are bare and the architecture looks completely different. With the changing of the leaves my eye bounces from one building to the next as the greens and reds contrast the blues and grays of Paris.
Yesterday as I walked through Palais Royal it was windy, cold and rainy. With the fountain in the center and the pounding rain it sounded more like my sleep music than anything. Most of the morning it was raining off and on but the sun in the afternoon just to say hello. After a nice solid sleep I was really able to enjoy the day.
The last few weeks I have been on the move and in between spending time with family. I have been busy balancing work and planning for this next trip to Paris. I am also planning a side trip to Italy and I am looking for suggestions. If you have any favorite cities, restaurants, must see places please share! I haven’t been to Florence in 7 years and Rome its been 11 so I think I might need to pay them a visit. Plus I have been craving gelato and pasta. A perfect reason for a visit. Well that and the fact that I haven’t explored these two cities with my camera in a while. As the years go by my eye changes and its fun to see the city in a different way.
If you are on instagram and would like to follow you can see my daily photos here @rebeccaplotnick I promise to keep you up to date on my travels through Italy/Paris. This should provide a little armchair travel if you can’t make it to Europe.
Here are a few photos from last years Autumn in Paris:
