The Princess Grace rose garden has undergone recent renovations and is now even better than ever. There is such a variety and profusion of colour, scent and blooms that there is something to see even after the peak blooming period. The new waterfeature is lovely as well and perfectly complements the structure. Go for a short break, a scented break... More

This garden underwent a major renovation and it shows. The roses and the garden is amazing to walk through. The garden is divided into six sections depending on the roses. Worth planning to see it in full bloom in June.

Princess Grace Rose Garden was one of the main places I was looking forward to visiting while spending a day in Monaco. What a dissapointment! Only until i got there, I saw a big notice at the gates stating that it will be closed until June 2014. There was no word about it when talking to a staff member at... More

Princess Grace liked roses & flowers in general & the thought of a memorial garden is a nice idea. But the size & scope of the idea could be improved. All Monaco features suffer from over kill & tourism. The statue is worthy of discussions

This garden was created by Prince Rainier as a homage to Princess Grace after her death. The huge variety of roses is stunning and the best time to visit is May or June, depending on how early summer arrives. There are also sculptures. The gardens are kept immaculate and it's a lovely place to rest for a while.

This garden has a few roses and is a very quiet place. As others have said, it won't take you long to visit it, but if you follow the sign posts and walk there from Monte-Carlo, you will see many beautiful sculptures along the way, which were one of the highlights of our trip.

Peaceful refuge from the often noisy traffic of Monaco. Much smaller than I expected.

A lovely small rose garden to walk round - will take you about 4mins unless you look at every rose - but a relaxing little quiet spot
