Best at the end of the afternoon , when the light becomes orange. Beautiful gardens overlooking the city. Peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Don't miss the Matisse painting museum, and the Nice archeological museum, and roman arena close to the monastery.

Very pretty church, convent and gardens. Stunning views of Nice and surrounds, lots of steps but leading to some interesting little spots. Not overly friendly attendants on the day we visited but worth a look for sure.

We walked the way up to the monastery coming across some posh villas at the Blvd de Cimiez. Take bus 15 or 17 to go up. €1,50 one way. The gardens of the monastery are simply gorgeous. The view is also breathtaking. Dont forget your...More

The convent and surrounding olive grove is a favorite place for locals to enjoy on a lovely afternoon. Bring a book, perhaps a picnic, and pretend you live in Nice, as well!

We explored the lovely quiet gardens on the old monastery. The tiny Franciscan museum was really atmospheric, and the church interior is completely different to the usual shiny interiors in french churches. The Matisse museum is not for me. I generally hate modern art, but...More
