Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique), La Condamine
(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Tour the terraced Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) 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. A visit to Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our La Condamine holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • From our hotel next to the rose garden would be 650 metres, but they all say. As the crow flies maybe, but they say nothing of the slope. In Monaco everything goes vertical and luckily there are public elevators and escalators, but it remains a tough fitness training to get there. Once arrived, it turns out to be more than worth it. The accenr is mainly on the cacti. There are many they they come in all shapes and sizes. In the park you will walk mainly down. If you are looking for the combine with the anthropology museum and the nearby new museum, then you do not top. Best sign up things when you pick up the tickets at the entrance.

  • Beautiful gardens with great views over Monaco and the sea combined this with a walk around the palace and the old town which was a pleasant surprise all perched together on a large rock 
  • Exotic garden (cactus and succulent plants) with a Museum of Anthropology (part of Prehistory with a complete skeleton of woolly mammoth and part antique) and a rather deep discovery cave during the construction of the garden. With a single ticket we can do three activities. The panorama of the city is superb! What a shame (!) that the garden offers more information and entertainment: edible cactus fruit tasting, cuttings of plants... Beware there are plenty of market to go down and up to the Park him even who is on the side of mountain or to the cave.

  • Nice garden with lots of cactus on top of a hill. Because it is a steep place you will have to climb. There are interesting caves and a small museum, but were closed when we visited. There are wonderful views of Monaco.
  • Very nice garden. Too hot the day we visited and the garden format required us to walk the entire garden which was too long.
  • You must visit the cave, this is a very interesting experience. Don't expect much in terms of service, energy from the staff or a decent cafe, I would love to say there was a fantastic spot to have a fantastic coffee and admire the view. But I can't. There isn't. However the view really is spectacular - much like the views above Dubrovnik.
  • Nice garden, great views and the tour through the cave was great too!
  • Absolutely stunning views of Monaco, the cacti garden is magnificent. Must do!!!
