It is a wonderful and very easy walk up and down the gardens. We went down to the caves with a 2 1/2 year old. Loved seeing it but would not recommend with kids. Too slippery at times. Three hundred steps down. Loved the gardens...More

Serine place in the center of town and worth the 10 minutes it takes to walk through. One of the stops on the tourist bus.

Visitors to Monaco should not miss the Japanese Gardens; a gift of the people of Japan IHO the late Princess Grace, who was adored in that country. It is an oasis in the midst of a busy city.

Well set out with seating a quiet place to relax and enjoy the scene. Would be better if it had a small coffee shop as a stopping point.

I think there will be no fall and winter in there and it is always going to be always green and lovely.

Lovely small garden and worth the walk down the hill to see it. Water features, plants and just nice to chill out there

These gardens are just average with nothing really special. The same can be seen in most Japanese gardens around the world. Ok for a short break but that is all.

great spot for some peace and quiet- take a book - walk a bit further round to the beach for little cafes
