Tour the terraced Jardin Exotique de Monaco atop the town's steep hill on a clear day to see a large collection of succulents and cacti. With extensive views over Monaco that can be seen from many vantage points, the garden offers more than botanical attractions. Broken up into smaller gardens, each terrace contains plantings that group similar plants together. Key attractions include the giant flowering succulents--spectacular even when not in flower--a shady area with a pond and waterfall, and the underground "cathedral"--a large, underground cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites. When you visit the garden, wear comfortable shoes, as there are many steep steps. Plan my trip to La Condamine with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
Jardin Exotique de Monaco reviews
From this high vantage point you can see most of the Monaco people visualise when they anticipate a visit here. The gardens are beautiful however you will need to be aware that it is a lot easier... more »
Had quite a quick visit here on our last morning in Monaco before having to catch flight back home. We had free tickets courtesy of an amazing British Airways/Principality of Monaco 3 day package... more »
Even if plants and flowers are not your thing, I still highly recommend buying a ticket and touring this garden! Wonderful trails that zigzag down the hillside, affording you wonderful views of the coastline. Many different types of cactus which are so intriguing. You will not regret your time spent here. You can get here easily by local buses.
One of my favourite places in Monaco. These gardens are beautifully done up and if you are lucky, you can also visit the cave. Unfortunately on my two visits they were closed due to high water as the previous day was very wet and windy. We visited in December and we were nearly the only people there.
