Nice pleasant walk through. Better scene in summer than in winter. Quiet place for relaxing time close to the Grimaldi Forum

Not a very long garden and will be through it quickly but is well laid out and has plenty of places to sit and reflect.

Surprisingly peaceful and quite. Even in December the garden is pretty. In the morning, there are people doing Tai Chi. The koi are varied and relaxing to watch. The rock garden is neatly raked in interesting patterns.

A great place to escape from the concrete walls of Monaco. From Spring to Autumn it is a wonderful place to visit.

Had a really nice walk around some immaculately kept gardens along the sea front, not your average flower garden and just how I imagine it to be like in Japan

Probably not everyone's cup of tea but it's free and is a nice calming garden next to the beach. Loads of Koi Carp in the ponds that are quite friendly

This garden was near our hotel and it had a lovely layout. They really take pride in their gardens in Monaco, and this one was just lovely. It is located by the Grimaldi Forum near the beach.

On the way out to Larvotto Beach, by the Grimaldi Forum and art galeries, thisi s a beautiful little garden. Free access, benches on which to sit and admire some lovely planting or admire the koi gently circling in the pool- (helpfully they even placed a board for people to identify and name the fish by their different patterns.
