Fodor's Review

To fully experience the Riviera's heady hothouse exoticism, visit the glorious Jardin Thuret, established by botanist Gustave Thuret in 1856 as a testing ground for subtropical plants and trees. Thuret was responsible for the introduction of the palm tree, forever changing the profile of the French Riviera. On his death the property was left to the Ministry of Agriculture, which continues to dabble in the introduction of exotic species. The garden is in the middle of the

Cap; from the Port Gallice, head up Chemin du Croûton, turn right on the Boulevard du Cap, then right again on Chemin Raymond.

Monaco Au Naturelle- C'est La Vie!

I strolled through the gardens while listening to the ocean surf just a few yards away. As the garden is on a bluff overlooking the ocean, I was absolutely breathless at the view of land meeting sea in perfect harmony.
