Parks of Paris: Parc Monceau

It’s time to visit another beautiful park in Paris!  This time, we’ll travel to Parc Monceau in the 8th arrondissement.  While not as extravagant as the Jardin du Luxembourg, Parc Monceau is still a large and lovely park, with unique elements that make it worthwhile to visit.

The park is quite easy to get to, just take the Metro to the Monceau stop and the entrance to the park is just though the elaborate gates on your left.
