Paris Flower Markets of Cité

One of my favorite things to do in Paris is to visit Île de la Cité and stroll through the flower market.  When most people visit Notre Dame, they don’t realize that just down the street is a beautiful flower market.  Housed in iron pavilions, it is open 7 days a week from 8am to 7.30pm  The best time to visit the market is in the spring and summer as all of the flowers are out in full bloom.  The winter time around the holidays is also a pretty time to visit the market to see it decorated for Christmas.  The markets are full of flowers from orchids to roses, but that is not all you will find!  There are also little stalls full of French style home decor pieces from lavender sachets to metal Eiffel Tower sculptures.  This is a great place to find a keepsake to take home as a reminder of Paris.  Just take the metro line 4 to Cité and you will come up from the stairs to find yourself in the middle of the flowers!
