“Nice views and good place to stroll. Maybe even grab a bite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We found these gardens more beautiful and worthwhile than the interior of Palais des Papes. Pretty views of the surrounding area, including across the Rhone. They also have a little sandwich shop at the top. There are a lot of stairs so it was a decent walk.

“Pretty park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Beautiful park next to the Palais de Papes, worth a walk thru and a great spot to watch the sunset. There is a restaurant in the middle, but it was closed when we were there on a Tuesday.

“The garden is not so fabulous as you are expecting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

As a garden next to Pope Palace, it was not so elegant and beautiful as I was expecting. But the view at top is quite nice and good for relaxing.

“Perfect in the evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We visited the gardens most evenings to make use of the busy little children's playground that is there suitable for under 8's. It was really pleasant walking up to the gardens in the evenings when the worst of the heat was leaving the day. The views are fantastic from the gardens and there are ducks to watch and a fish pond too. We didn't try out the little horses that can be hired and taken around the park, but they are there for 1-8 yr olds, with pedals and reins so a choice of how to move them.

“A great place for a picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

A nice and relaxing place to visit if you need a break from your busy trip. Here you can find a nice bench for a relaxing picnic lunch (french style) with a great view of Rhône and watching people. If you need a place to relax and enjoy your vacation, this is one of them.
