“nice park, breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

There is a nice park in the monastery in Cimiez. It is easy to get to by 2 buses. The open top bus also takes you to Cimiez as a stop. You can hop off and hop back on after you visited the park. There is an observation patio where you can see part of Nice. Nice garden with many different types of roses and flowers. It was my father in law most favourite place to visit every morning!

“On your way up!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

You can include the Chagall museum. Then bus (15 or 22) it to Matisse museum set in olive tree garden and then conclude with the wonderfull monastery church. You can catch the bus 17 just round the corner from the church that takes you back down and you can stop at the modern arts museum. Or you can walk back down on a series of stairways that ends up at the old port.

“Really neat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Free, worth it, historic, and the gardens are great. You'll feel like a local with all the neighbours relaxing in the garden.

“Interesting visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Very interesting visit to the old Franciscan monastery at Cimiez, and beautiful gardens with views back down across Nice to the sea.

Combined with a visit to the Matisse museum, and a stroll through the olive grove and Roman ruins, it is well worth the No. 15 bus ride up the hill from Nice.

“Another little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Once again one of those not so well known tourist attractions but well worth the visit.Regretably not much information in English which seems quite typical in most places in France but I really enjoyed it
