  • We visited here one afternoon after lunch on a trip to Eze. Entrance is only 3 euros which is good value for money as you’ll spend at least an hour here exploring. Be aware there is little shade...  more »
  • Wonderful view, beautiful garden. A must see place in Eze. Well organized pathways, all is good! Very romantic for couples as well.  more »
  • If you are in Eze this is worth a visit. Incredible views surrounded by beautiful gardens and sculptures. With small plaques and boards dotted around telling stories about the medieval villages...  more »
  • This is the best 6 euros you can spend ever. The view is stunning, the amount of flora species is crazy. Don’t miss the Mediterranean part of the garden, it is cozy and shady. Try to come here either early in the morning or after 5pm so you can have some personal space.
  • After visiting it entirely, one can seat on the refreshing shadow of a stone made terrace and just contemplate the sea. I read a book there for more than an hour and it was totally relaxing seeing people passing by from time to time... Totally recommend it!
  • Absolutely breathtaking views and an easy walk for anybody. The sheer amount on flora packed into such a small area is amazing also. When we visited it was €8 per person. Not bad for the experience.
  • This place is very deceptive , from town level it is difficult to imagine that there is so much hidden up there. Well worth a visit and if you use the parking +shuttle, which costs 6 euros, you get free entree for one person into the garden , value 6 euros. Nice little supermarket in the town /village of Eze
  • Such a gem! Definitely worth the climb up. As a lover of anything cactus and succulent, I was in heaven. This place has everything - plants, waterfalls, statues, little pathways and most of all, VIEWS!!
