Jardin Exotique de Monaco

62 Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, 98000 Monaco

Open in 1933, the Exotic Gardens of Monaco have become a tranquil maze of over a thousand species of cacti and succulents that thrive under the Mediterranean sun. In this dramatic landscape, the gardeners artfully cultivate a crucial refuge for endangered plants. Here, in the cliffs 100 meters above the sea, guests can take a guided tour of a hidden cavern with stalagmites, stalactites and traces of prehistoric man.
