Parc Monceau is one of the most beautiful parcs in Paris. Once it was the sight of the first silk parachute jump; nowadays it is a perfect place to walk, lie in the sun or jog. It’s entrances are marked by large gates, topped with gold. From one of them, you have a straight look at the Arc de Triomphe. Fortunately it is also very near to where we live, so I get to come there quite often.
