Monte Carlo is awash with colour from the bright, wealthy hotels, blinding super yachts down to the blue harbour which shines in the sun like cut glass. Walking in the sun amongst the amazing array of exotics and succulents which line the cliff top in the Jardin Exotique feels like being on holidays.

Some of these cacti have thrived into mammoth sizes, some of the garden having had eighty years to grow, creating an almost otherworldly garden of strange shapes, textures and fleshy green colours. These plants come from all over the world to this plant heaven of plenty of sunshine and rain (plants can’t appreciate the view or that they’re in such fine company but they’re on display as if they can.). Grounds keepers say that there is always colour to the garden, the plants flower in different cycles. Naturally the cliff top view over the entire principality is worth it on its own.
