This is a good free attraction for adults who like to view exotic trees. It is a sloping site and many of the paths are unsuitable for the disabled or elderly infirm. There are no facilities except for a clean but basis WC mainly used...More

This botanical garden is not exceptional in itself. But it is really an historical place. The villa was bought by a rich diplomat in 1856, G.A. Thuret who decided to convert the place in an English countryside. The place was for a long time a...More

We always visit this special garden which is near where we stay on Cap d'Antibes. It dates back to the 19th century and now, as then, is devoted to the growing and conservation of species from around the world. It has an excellent position and...More

I walked here from the Old Town area of Antibes. It is in a residential area and easy to find, although you have to go past what appears to be the main entrance and enter from a side street. In late March there were no...More

After a long walk from old town Antibes, I was disappointed with Jardin Thuret. The garden was very dry and there was no colours. There were some big trees with scrubby undergrowth. All in all disappointing visit.

If you know your trees and their latin names you will enjoy this garden a lot, and its heritage. Otherwise it has the air of a pleasant but slightly neglected garden, which you can wander around in about twenty minutes. It is free to get...More
