After we’ve already visited all the most famous attractions of Paris, we have more time to explore calmly the less known places that also have their charm and tend to be more attended by Frenchmen than by tourists. One of theses places in the French capital is the Parc Monceau. I really love the parks and gardens of Paris and the Parc Monceau is one of my favorites in the city. It was built in the eighteenth century, it was renovated in the next century and the bourgeoisie of the time spent to build mansions around it. The site is still very elitist even today because the properties around the park are quite expensive. The place is great for picnics and has fake Roman ruins inside. People who live nearby usually go to the park for jogging or walking in the morning and late afternoon. It is located in the 8th arrondissement (a district of Paris) in a quite residential area and opens from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. from October to April, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. from May to August and from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in September. The park has four entrances, but the main one is by a golden gate that stands at 35, Boulevard de Courcelles.
