With a view of Parc Monceau, the Museum Nissim de Camondo (designed after the Petit Trianon in Versailles), is one of the most elegant houses in Paris. Built during la Belle Epoque for Moïse de Camondo, a famous Parisian banker, it houses a magnificent range of eighteenth-century furnishings and objets d’art.

Following the tour of the Museum, our guide will explain the history of the elegant Parc Monceau built in the 18th century and redesigned by Baron Haussmann during the Second Empire. This garden presents a collection of amazing pieces of architecture such as an Egyptian Pyramid, a colonnade, and a rotunda which was part of the late 18th century Paris Walls.

Don’t miss this superb museum and walk through Parc Monceau with our experienced guide.
