I just came across some pictures from a trip to the Jardin Exotique in Monaco and wanted to blog my two cents about it!
Honestly, this was definitely an attraction that I could have lived without visiting. I do love visiting botanical gardens and the like, but this didn’t bowl me over. Sure, there are a lot of “exotic” plants there; most of them were of the cacti variety. The nice view over the sea and the Principality of Monaco is great, but there are a lot of those that don’t cost 7.30 euro!
Does anyone really go to Monaco to see cacti or plant life?
Let’s just leave Monaco for what it’s meant for: snapping pics of Rolls Royces, fogging up the windows outside of Cartier and secretly hoping all day that an über-rich inhabitant of Monaco will fall madly in love with us and sweep us off our feet.
