“AWESOME Hidden Palace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This rather large palace is tucked away inside the narrow streets of Old Nice.. and it is FREE! It is definitely worth a visit, absolutely gorgeous and unexpected.

“Get inside those tall buildings in old Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Do not expect a great palace but a luxury great mansion hidden in one of those narrow streets in old town. The furnishings and the scale of decorations does impress, it is FREE and you can take photos (without a flash). Takes about 40 minutes to walk around and has a great collection of musical instruments. Gives you the feel what those great families lived like in 17th century.

“little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

A smart museum in a old palace. A collection of musical instruments and furniture from the golden ages of Nice. Loved the stairs, rooms and the queen bed :)
Free entry.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stuck in the middle of the old town, it's quite hard to find but it is worth it. Properly restored with original items, it's a wonder to see and walk around.

We happened upon this lovely small palais in old town by accident. It was a wonderful, atmospheric building which houses some lovely artefacts. Well worth a visit
