These well-manicured gardens contain a variety of beautiful plants, trees and flowers as well as being home to the wonderful Princess Grace rose garden.
Laid out over an area of almost four hectares, this park contains a small lake bordered by palms and olive trees and offers a charming space full of serenity in the Fontvieille area. The footpath leads you around to discover many contemporary sculptures.
The Rose Garden first opened on 18 June 1984. Prince Rainier III wanted to create a place in memory of his wife Princess Grace. More than 30 years later, the new Rose Garden is much larger, but retains the charm of the original garden and has 8,000 rose bushes in some 300 different varieties.
Here you can discover roses such as the rose of the Grimaldi Royal Family and those roses named after Princes, Princesses and celebrities. There is are modern interactive terminals on each rose variety so you can find out more about them.
