“Lovely place to wander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

These are very pleasant gardens with some welcome shade in the summer. Unfortunately some of the gardens were closed for maintenance when I visited but overall they were lovely. I would certainly include a visit as you walk around Montpellier.

“nice place to laze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

nice place to laze and cool in the shade.
Don't forget to put your head in the college of Pharmacy.
1 hour is enough to do the circle but it's very beautiful

“The oldest botannical gardens in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Still well maintained these botannical gardens were the first in Europe established by the faculty of medicine in Montpellier. I have grown a Ginko Biloba from a (stolen) fruit from the first Ginko ever grown in France!!

“too warm!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We hope to walk around but it was too hot. We sat and had a rest so did not see as much as we had hoped.
