The gardens are small but perfectly planted, with great attention to authentic detail. There are pretty water features, winding paths & picturesque bridges, as well as serene Koi carp. It feels like a peaceful haven despite being in the middle of Monte Carlo. The gardens are especially attractive at this time of year when the blossoms are in bloom, &... More

Like everything else in Monaco, these gardens are immaculately groomed with winding paths, well trimmed trees and breathtaking views onto the Monaco harbor. But make sure you don't put off your visit till evening as they close at 5 PM.

Pretty gardens and as they are free major bonus. Probably takes about half an hour to have a good look around w. When you finish walk down the steps outside and have a drink in the beach !

It's a lovely place to visit when the sun is shining. So pretty and quaint. Lots to look at and lots of romantic photograph opportunities. Could happily go here every week as each time I go there's something new I spot. Fantastic

Fabulous, this is a must. Not expensive and fabulous views. This is definite visit, the views from the top are amazing. You can see both Harbours from the top and from one side you can see the Monaco Football Stadium. You can also go down into the Caves which is approx 300 steps down and then 300 steps back up....

Very pretty, but don't buy an ice cream and walk in...the guard will order you to leave! An amazing collection of plants to see, but don't touch!

Stumbled across this beautiful little garden as we wandered around Monaco. This was so pretty and unbelievably, free! Only downside was no cafe! However well worth wandering through as part of a Monaco visit. Good location by the beach......

The Japanese Gardens in Monte Carlo are a pure delight! Very well kept and an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Monte Carlo. Don't miss!

It is easy to find and access. Then again it is rather small. However, take a few minutes to appreciate the beauty of it.
