Located in the VIII arrondissement, on the right bank of the Seine, Parc Monceau is a truly Parisian experience. Less frequented by tourists than its bigger, more famous cousins, it’s a spot favoured by the locals for picnics, jogging and relaxing on the laws. It’s a romantic and quiet location for wedding ceremonies in all seasons.
Designed and built in the 18th century, with “folies” such as a Roman colonnade, a small scale Egyptian pyramid, a Venetian bridge and other exotic features it was conceived by its architect to be a “fantasy” and to amuse and surprise the visitor at every step.

Avoid school days (4.30 to 6.00 pm) as there is a primary school just off the gardens and it can get noisy.
