These gardens are compact, well laid out and a delight to stroll through. Their design includes bonsai trees and makes good use of the water features.

We visited Monte Carlo as a part of an excursion from a cruise so we were limited on time. Visiting the Japanese gardens is a must as they are simply stunning and nothing like I've ever experienced. Considering they are situated above a large car park, because we were too busy admiring the beauty that surrounded us, you wouldn't have... More

This is a small, very well maintained Japanese Garden in the heart of Monte Carlo. Located just a short walk from our hotel, we disovered the gardens by accident. The day we visited was very warm so the gardens were a lovely spot to sit and relax in the shade for a few minutes.

These gardens are close by to the casino square and the Fairmont hotel and are a lovely peaceful area where you can sit and enjoy the tranquillity

OK so its not huge, but if you like gardens this delightful garden is a welcome place to relax or rest a while. It is near to the coach park and we strolled around but would have spent longer if we had the time. If you are nearby it is worth a look in.

I was so excited to learn that there was a Japanese garden in Monte Carlo, but was very disappointed. It is no bigger than our garden at home and there is absolutely nothing of any significance to see in this garden.

Peaceful and serene oasis in an otherwise busy city. Offers a shady seat and is free to visit. Good for a breather after climbing the hilly streets. Would not go out of my way to visit and would not rate as a top attraction of Monaco either.

Nothing absolutely beautiful they really maintain the garden really well. There were even a few people who took wedding photos there and the bus to the gardens is a good journey.

It's just a small cute garden. Nothing exceptional, but nice to walk through. I liked the views, I thought it would be larger.

Small but cleverly designed for maximum effect and a peaceful oasis which is good for photo ops. If going from further away in town, the bus stops almost at the entrance.
