The Festival Des Jardins is currently happening across the South of France. The Festival is actually a competition between the Riviera Towns and Cities. Each Location enters a collection of bespoke gardens for judging.
In Nice, these were at the Promenade du Paillon in the Centre of Town.
I was hoping this competition would let us see wonderful Riviera style homes and gardens but instead it was more like a collection of Chelsea Flower Show style gardens for judging.
Entry was free and I enjoyed seeing the Nicoise entries.
It wasn’t far from our stay at the Negresco, so it wasn’t a hardship to visit.
