Wonderful park to walk throughout it seems so out of place smack in the middle of such an exquisite European jewel!

If there is one, I always try to visit Japanese Gardens during my trips. If you'd like spend some time out of the casinos, this garden is an excellent choice. It is relatively small but you can experience a Japanese Garden soul here. It is ideal to sit under a tree and relax while staring at the big fishes swimming... More

What a gem! Away from all the glitz and glamour of the Casino, there is a connection to nature here. It is off the main path a little but definitely worth a detour. For a city that charges an entrance fee to their casino, this is actually a free attraction.

It seems quiet out of place in Monaco a small quiet garden but we were walking along the sea and came across it. Extremely well maintained and a tranquil hide away.

Among all the glitz and glam of Monaco is this little beauty hidden away. If you're a fan of F1 and walking the circuit, this garden is on the left as the turn to head towards the tunnel. The garden isn't too big, but it is very picturesque. A side of feudal japan sitting among the concrete jungle. Plenty of... More

Just beside our hotel the gardens were charming with classic japanese landscaping right beside the Mediterranean. They are small and only require a few minutes to walk through.

Unfortuneately, you cannot bring food in, or it would have been perfect for a picnic...but the Janapanese Gardens are a haven of peace and tranquility. The best way to get to them, is to get on the hop on hop off bus as they are an official stop. They are just so beautiful, it'd be a shame to rush them...try... More

These peaceful gardens are an excellent antidote to the commercial capital that surrounds it - well worth the time to relax and recharge.

The first and only good surprise I had in Monte Carlo... This garden is so "not" Monte Carlo... Quiet (even though you need to go to the sea side to escape the noise of the road on the other side), beautiful, spiritual, sophisticated, deep... Or just beautiful... Only place I really recommend in this city...
