Jardin Exotique de Monaco, La Condamine

#2 of 7 in Parks in Monaco
Cave Garden Must See
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.

  • The "Jardin Exotique de Monaco is located" above Monte Carlo with a fantastic view over the city and the bay. The garden is beautifully landscaped and houses a plethora of cacti in a wide variety of sizes. The garden is easily accessible from the harbour by bus number 2 to the terminus, which is located right in front of the entrance of the "Jardin Exotique." We had the garden almost to ourselves, few tourists had found the way up here. The visit is absolutely worthwhile and we spent the whole morning there. In the garden there is a stalactite cave and a small anthropological museum. The entrance fee is moderate: €7.20 per adult

  • Impressive collection of plants with a great view of the city. Inexpensive admission, includes guided tour of the stalactite cave and archaeological exhibit. Spent two hours here, well worth the visit.
  • Usually i'm not a big fan of those botanic gardens but this place is absolutely awesome. It is a very relaxed and calm area in the heart of the city. 👍🏻 Take a seat and enjoy the view...
