Oh wow. I come across this cemetery quite by accident. I'd already visited the Jewish graveyard whilst up Castle Hill. But after going back up Castle hill on the small train I spied what appeared to be majestic headstones rising from the skyline. I got...More

This is a recommended place to visit. Take a local bus from center of Nice, about 15 minutes ride. Rose gardens close to the monastery. Bring your own picnic food in May week-ends and join the locals.

The church has some amazing early paintings (some restored we are glad to note) around 14th/15th century?. There’s often concerts there too, worth checking the tourist office or local press for timings. The gardens are best in the spring/summer period as the display of roses...More

I like to visit cemeteries, especially to visit the tombs of artists I admire. In this case, I was interested in seeing the place where Henri Matisse and Raoul Dufy are resting. The cemetery is a calm place, beautiful and flowery, particularly the path towards...More
