I think this is a good value for money excursion if you are in Menton or surrounding areas. It is a short walk from the town - someone suggested 30-40 minutes but it took us 27 minutes by going through the tunnel under the old...More

The visit of the garden isn't worth in this season. Waist of time and money! It was recommended by the "office du tourisme". The visit was really disappointed. Every other garden n the town and the flowers along the streets in Menton are much better...More
