Gardens

Quite a climb to get to the tower but worth it. Temple of Diana was more accessible. Its more park like rather than garden as very few flowers

We were walking the old city, and needed a place with a shed to relax a bit and rest. And Jardin des Plantes provided that. It is nice for a walk around, does have some nice plants and greenery, but not that much of a garden feeling with flowers. Many youngsters were having a picnic on the grounds, so seems... More

Such a romantic and peaceful place! It was founded by Henri IV, a French king, to grow medicinal herbs and plants for use by the Medical School nearby in Montpellier. But it so pretty! A great place to take lots and lots of photos.

If you like nature you should definitely go there. It is not very big and also it looks like it hasn't been taken care of for a while. The entrance is a little hard to find - it is on the side.

Visited twice and both times. A lovely park a d appeared well kept - enjoyed the walk around in the heat wave ! Free entry and worth a visit - a nice pond with loads of wildlife evident.

It is very interesting garden.....beautiful. The only problem can be some misbehaviour of students! I dont like what they do to all the parks here in Montpellier. But the place could be just heaven!

Oh, the potential in this nice old urban garden! And the neglect! If it wasn't so hot in this part of the world (and if we didn't love where we live) I would have moved to Montpelier to help them work on this garden! Full of frogs and other little water critters, and nice old shade trees, the garden is... More

The herb garden of Montpellier University is famous for being the oldest and most extensive in Europe alongside its even more famous medical school. Tram lines are being inserted into the road that cuts the gardens from the medical school, which at the present is unfortunate, but temporary. However, the garden was a real disappointment with what seemed like about... More

The Jardin des Plantes is a lovely place to chill out particularly in the Spring or summer where the flowers are in bloom. Its peaceful most of the time but obviously gets quite busy in peak tourist season.
