Who would have thought a bunch of rose bushes along a hillside could be so beautiful? Incredible, beautiful and makes you want to grow a bunch of your own! The landscaping is so simple and yet it is majestic and spectacular. We visited in early July a little past their prime but there were so many blooms it was incredible.... More

I honestly thought the garden was a closed building containing the roses, but still the effect is impressive, even in the open air. Thousands of roses from all around the world, donated by famous florists and brands in order to celebrate princess Grace Kelly memory. I honestly found the statue not to be that similar to her, but that's a... More

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.
