From March 30 to April 28, 2019, the city of Nice and the Alpes-Maritimes department will celebrate spring during the second edition of the French Riviera’s Festival des Jardins. This will be another opportunity for residents and visitors of the region to discover beautiful gardens and exceptional landscaping, whether permanent or ephemeral.
For this new edition, the organisers of the Festival des Jardins have decided to bring together the Riviera Residents under the theme 'Dreams of the Mediterranean'. The exceptional gardens invite us to a total immersion into the immense plant heritage of the region and, by extension, the Mediterranean rim. It includes Provençal gardens, of course, but also landscapes imbued with the spirit of the Renaissance or Ancient Greece. Some oases of greenery will inevitably evoke the lost paradises of the Maghreb.
The Festival des Jardins is not just only about the competition. Outside of that, several ephemeral and majestic gardens were created along the coastline, in the major cities of the Alpes-Maritimes and in the Principality of Monaco. Moreover, more than 350 animations will be organised during the month to entertain and educate children and adults.
