Paris is full of beautiful attractions and museums and bustling restaurants to visit, but sometimes the best place to be is quietly sitting on a park bench. It’s my favorite place, anyway… Parc Monceau on the border of the 8th and 17th arrondissements holds a special place in my heart, as it was where I did my daily exercise a few years ago when I lived about 15 minutes away. It has some of the best people-watching in Paris, and is special in its design and neighborhood feel.
