Well worth the admission fee for the spectacular views and great plants and descriptions. No toilet inside the garden grounds.

Lets make it clear : you can't go to Eze and not visit the garden. The view up there is simply stunning and the garden is worth your time as well !

Lindo jardim, a subida é cansativa mas a vista de cima vale tudo. É legal ir dia de semana ou sabado para pegar as lojinhas abertas.
