Paris is one of those cities that remain beautiful all year round. It's a picturesque place in the springtime, a sunny sight in summer, and quite a wonderland in winter. What about autumn? Does Paris look just as breathtaking when the leaves change color? It definitely does! In places like Jardin des Tuileries, Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, and Montmartre, the fall foliage creates an absolutely captivating sight. In the orange glow of the season, the city almost looks heartwarming enough to keep you feeling cozy against the autumn breezes. You need to see it for yourself!

Canal Saint-Martin

Canal Saint-Martin is one of Paris's best-kept secrets. Well, it's not a secret, per se, but it's not as popular as the Seine River, Bassin de la Villette, and many other similar spots in Paris. You can say that it's only the locals who usually hang out along this serene canal in the 11th arrondissement. So for the most part, it is somewhat of a secret spot. And what a picturesque secret it is during autumn! When the trees that line this 4.6-kilometer-long canal change color, it produces a magnificent sight. One that will stay with you the moment you look at it firsthand.

Jardin des Tuileries

No matter the time of year, Jardin des Tuileries is always one of the most beautiful parks in Paris. You can say that it's the definitive park of the city, the same way that Central Park is to New York City or Hyde Park is to London. This is the iconic Parisian park with the Ferris Wheel, the grand mansion, and most famously, the Grande Allée, the elm tree-lined path. From movies and TV series to TV commercials, many have filmed in this beloved spot. It's even more than likely that they did so during autumn when the usual lush greenery turn into beautiful shades of orange, yellow, and red.

Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is another one of the most beautiful parks in Paris. Set in the 19th arrondissement, it is 24.7 hectares of pure botanical bliss. There are even parts of the park that you almost couldn't believe are still part of Paris. They look like full-blown forests, lakes, and the like, the kinds which you would never have expected to find in the bustling French capital. And just imagine how those very same sceneries would look in the orange glow of autumn! It's a postcard-worthy sight that presents a different side to the city's beauty.

Montmartre

Parks are pretty expected when it comes to looking for the most beautiful fall foliage in Paris. You already know these green spaces have their fair share of trees and plants. It's only natural to find beautiful foliage in these places. But a bustling district like Montmartre, on the other hand, presents a pleasant surprise. With how busy the area is, it's easy to forget that the neighborhood actually has a lot of trees. And all of them change color once autumn arrives, practically panting the entire area with a heartwarming sepia tone. How's that for captivating?

Père Lachaise Cemetery

What's also in Montmartre is the famous Père Lachaise Cemetery, the most famous cemetery in Paris. Generally speaking, places like these feel bleak and even a bit morbid as far as spending time outside is concerned. But the Père Lachaise Cemetery is a different story. It's actually a beautiful graveyard, filled with grand mausoleums and stunning stone angels that show a fascinating, almost heart-wrenching aesthetic. And when autumn arrives and changes the color of the leaves, the scenery looks straight out of a classic French novel. It's a picture you'll want to share on social media and beyond!

Place de la Sorbonne

Finally, there's Place de la Sorbonne in the Latin Quarter. The public square may be part of one of the most prestigious universities in Paris, but it's far from boring. On the contrary, it's more beautiful than boring. The tree-lined plaza with a fountain in the center is a classic European city look that never fails to charm locals and tourists alike. And it's even more beguiling in autumn when the trees turn different colors. When you look straight down the path and see the blazes of marigold and crimson line the plaza, it's as if the place is on fire!
