Take a walk at the heart of magnificent Parc Monceau and discover the Cernuschi and Nissim de Camondo museums and their splendid city mansions.

Nature


It's enchanting every morning when I go jogging: overflowing nature, trees, Asian plane trees and sycamore maples, jays and mallard ducks with their ducklings in the springtime. I often see incognito show biz stars, traders and the armada of gardeners busying themselves around flower arrangements.

Baroque


It's a living park where you see prams and a few Russians on their way to the Alexander Nevsky orthodox cathedral (1861) which is close by. It's easy to imagine the time when Marcel Proust strolled around the park because it hasn't changed since Napoleon III. The high wrought-iron fences and their gilt points still protect this little island from the tumult of the city surrounding it.

A splendid neighbourhood


At that time, the financier Pereire built a number of city mansions along the sides of the park, including the Cernuschi (Asian art) and Nissim de Camondo (18th century) museums. Spend some time in the late morning and discover the splendour and wealth of the Parisian homes of bygone times. Parc Monceau is a pleasant bit of time travel.

Steve, 49 ENTREPRENEUR

Comfortable in working-class neighbourhoods and the tonier areas of Paris, I never get tired of rediscovering this timeless city. The Sex Pistols set the pace when I was younger. New technologies fill my working days now. My little extra: discovering fine eating spots around the capital for romantic dinners!
