  • Not far from the famous and stylish Monte Carlo there is nothing short of delicious, it's called Eze, we discovered quite by accident ... but well worth a view. It's because I took pictures ... that if I were to print them on postcards I'd do a lot of money, and that in itself should be enough, but if that wasn't enough there is a place where they make the crepes ... now unfortunately I don't remember the name but if you find you're lucky, try the crepes with lemon ... I am sure d I have never eaten a lemon crepes more good than that. I don't know if that's their specialty if it isn't ... it's supposed to be ... as for the garden, there is a decent variety of plants ... cmq ... reiterate views

  • Exotic garden in Eze-one of the youngest in the country, it was founded in 1949 year. One of the initiators of its creation was the Mayor of Eze, René Zhianto and the very idea of embodied Jean Gastaud, created the Botanical Garden in the Principality of Monaco. Paths and alleys garden surrounded by the ruins of a fortress, which was destroyed in the early 18th century, and built this strengthening was still in the era of Saracen raids. In the garden were planted various species of thermophilic plants-palms, agaves, but it the most exotic Succulents are gigantic, as well as very unusual garden looks during flowering cacti. In total, there are more than three thousand species of these prickly plants, some already reached 20 meters high and more than half a meter in diameter. A few years ago in the Botanical Garden of Eze was reconstructed, after which he gained another observation deck, elegant benches and fountains. In different parts of the garden were installed sculpture work Jean-Philippe Richard, depicting the young women. It is believed that their installation is a kind of reverence toward the Egyptian goddess ISIS, from which the name Pe. With viewing platforms, upper and lower (new)-opened just gorgeous views of the Cote d'Azur. So cozy here and love those who love the narrow winding paths and game of hide-and-seek:)

  • View in Nice weather. €4 entrance (low season) enjoy view with a cappuccino, very expensive (€8) but it's worth. We took off the bus (€1.50) directly in the village, Nice. Back we have migrated down to the railway station (45 min), also a stunning backdrop. Only to recommend!

  • Lovely place. Recommended. There are some chairs where u can lie down and enjoy the afternoon- the relaxation area. It has a lot to see and walk around- I believed it to be much smaller than it was
  • Best view of Monaco (both old and new town). The grotto is very fun and great for kids and the gardens have a great array of cacti and other exotic plants. The entire garden is on the edge of a cliff which gives a stunning back drop. You can get to the garden by foot or taking the number two bus from Monte Carlo or from the aquarium. This was one my top things to do in Monaco
  • Nice place to view the beautiful sea in the afternoon. But to me, spend €12 for that view is not worth. I recommended you to walk 2 minutes to the next 112 bus stop to capture that view for free, rather than spend €12.
  • I waschen very sceptical at the first, but it's worth it. Magnificent views! Cute, neat garden. Lots of succulents 🌵
  • Was here in february, looked nice but was not easy to find. Also there were constructors everywhere building stuff in and around the garden.
