Create an itinerary including Jardin Exotique de Monaco
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.

  • This place was incredibly hard to find. A lot of walking and navigation required. Saw some nice farm animals along the way. Not clear signs directly leading there. I would recommend taking a bus if...

  • The garden is exotic, for sure. Exotic for such purposes that it is exotically ill-maintained. It is close to cathedral.

  • It is very interesting for visiting place with a lot of different types of plants. Some of them are exotic and you can’t see them in many places. There is a historical museum in the garden. I liked it a lot because in my opinion it was more children oriented and information that you can receive there is presented in a very attractive and easy way. The view from the garden is also breathtaking because the garden is located on a cliffside and you can see the whole Monaco from it. The only thing that I regret for is that we weren’t able to visit the cave because it was closed that time of the year.
  • The gardens are superb. The price (7.50€ per adult) includes the gardens, the cave (really nice) and a small prehistoric museum. The view is fantastic and cacti are beautiful. There are small paths, romantic spots with benches and cute stop overs. The cave is very interesting, a little adventure, it's very warm and humid inside, I recommend to visit it (guided tours are every full hour, last one starts at 17). The museum gives a bit more history behind the cave and olden times in Monaco.
