The 14th edition of the Rendez-vous aux jardins will be held this year on 3, 4 and 5 June. Among the many cities to participate in this event, the PACA region is very well represented by the gardens of Menton! For the occasion, the city has decided to honour the gardens throughout the month of June

Every year the Rendez-vous aux jardins is a great success. In 2015 more than 1.8 million visitors were won over by visiting the almost 2300 public and private gardens accessible for the occasion. This year the different participating cities have worked hard to propose exquisite gardens and to fit in with this year's theme "the colours of the garden"

The city of Menton, known for its lemons, had no trouble bringing out this year's theme through its sumptuous colourful gardens. From the Hotel d'Adhémar to the Riviera Palace, via the Maria Serena Garden or the Fontana Rosa Garden, Menton opens to the public nearly ten exceptional gardens. For a month, visitors will be able to discover ephemeral exhibitions on the theme of the garden and colours, guided tours, award ceremonies... Over the course of a weekend, young and old alike will be made aware and informed about the protection, conservation, creation and maintenance of the most beautiful gardens in France.
