The gardens are just along a steep path, not a planned space. Pleasant but not a lot more. There are some succulents and a patch of bamboo.

Indeed it is a beautiful town, more for the way it is built against the cliffs than by the tropical vegetation. Everything matches – the river, the color of the cliffs and the buildings – it is in fact a post card. The reason why...More

Well worth a visit, although I'm not sure where the street ends and the gardens start. Banana trees and exotic plants all in a walk way set above and away from the main road.

This was a fun little stop on our 9 mile canoe ride down the Dordogne. Wander up the little tangle of this quaint town and enjoy the cacti and flowers. The best part is it's free, perfect for budget-minded travelers. Stay awhile or just pop...More

Stumbled across this by accident just behind the Main Street and what a great place! This is such a gorgeous well maintained little village and the gardens really set it off. It was quiet and showery when we were there but no less attractive.

Sightseeing in Monaco/Jardin Exotique/Monte Carlo (8 Replies)
Please which is the best order to do the usual 'tourist sights' Monaco's first and then Monte Carlo's or the other way round? We would also like to visit Jardin Exotique but am unsure where that would fit in best to the day and how to get there. Is it walkable and does the sequence make any difference if you arrive by bus or train from Nice. Thanks for any info

We are planning to take the bus to Eze in the morning and go to the garden at the very top, and then go to Monaco after. Once in Monaco, we'll start at the tourism office area next to the Casino, walk down to the casino, behind it, and then make our way to the port, walk around the port to the other side, go behind the cliff, and take the elevators/escalators up to the top where we will be near the Oceanographic museum. We may do that for a few hours, but will also see right there too the...More
