  • Plan to spend some time here, because it's really beautiful. Bring a lunch and go to the washroom before paying entry into the garden. Also, sunblock as most of the garden is in direct sunlight, but t...  more »
  • After walking through the narrow streets of this beautiful village, we drove to the exotic garden and, given my passion for Succulents, we entered. A spectacle of nature! Maintained and kept very well, you walk among wonderful plants with delicate flowers. I can't forget the breathtaking panorama one enjoys from the top of this botanical garden. I absolutely recommend a visit!

  • So glad we ended our visit to Eze with the climb up to the garden. The views are spectacular. And so are some of the cacti.  more »

  • Breathtakingly beautiful gardens, walkways and settings. Many exotic plants imported from around the world. Intertwining stone paths made for a wonderful walk. Be sure you come wearing comfortable shoes. I was there on a very warm day and was pleased to have the misters pushing water out around the lounges. If it's a hot and sunny day, I would advise good headwear, and maybe even an umbrella.
  • Awesome garden at such a high point. It has a wide variety of plants coming from various locations. The view is quite spectacular! The English signs are appreciated!
  • We have to be clear that while the garden is nice, I've come here twice now on two separate trips to see the view. The 6 Euro entry is not going to break the bank and the garden itself is impeccably maintained. Watch for the smoothly worn steps which make it very slippery even when dry. Avoid the hordes of tourists (especially when they are loud teenies on a class outing) if possible by going to the other areas to let the tour groups disperse back to their busses.
  • Beautiful garden filled mainly with succulents, located on top of a hill and surrounded with old town buildings. This setting gives many opportunities for great photos including panoramas. Entry for up to 6 eur/person.
  • Beautifully laid out gardens on many levels. Superb specimens of cacti and other succulents. Walk to the summit for spectacular views.
