Exotic Garden - Jardin Exotique, Monaco: 12 reviews and 34 photos
This place is amazing. A hanging garden in an off-the-beaten path location of Monaco. It's a bit of a slog to find it, but the discovery is well worth the hard work.
Cacti from all over the world are exhibited here, with some cool, funky animal sculptures thrown in for good measure - donkeys, a rhino, etc.
The cute girl holding a flower basket is so welcoming, greeting you at the entrance, beside the souvenir shop.
The pathway leads down, either via a gentle sloping tarmac, or the steps & ladders. There are various places to sit in the shade, admiring the grand views over Monaco & the ocean around. You'll also find several ponds of varying sizes, with real fish ;)
Another treat awaits you at the bottom of the gardens - the warm grotto, with stalactities, stalagmites, and colons! Descend from 110m to 40m via the 300 steps to marvel at the colours, formations - all natural - dating back millions of years!
(I've made more tips on the Garden to accommodate several photos)
Directions: Walk, and walk, and walk, climb some stairs, walk more, through a tunnel, use an elevator here and there, and voila!
