“A little out of the way, but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

The scenery and gardens of this convent are excellent. From one side one can overlook the harbor and elsewhere one can walk through gardens and see centuries old Italian architecture. Very cool to see and if time permits is a very worthwhile visit.

“Nice place but too far”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

It is a nice place to visit if it is closeby. It is quite a distance from Nice downtown andyou will see the whole place after about 20 minutes. Thus it is only worthwhile if you combine the visit to this place with other places. We signed up for a one day tour with the local travel company. They used a mini-bus to take us to see all the attractions; the tour guide did speak good English so the tour was very good. Highly recommend people to use this one day tour.

“A lovely mountain train ride.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

worth taking a ride on the train into the mountains although in December when we went, nothing open at the villages on route and had to spend time waiting for train to come back in a cafe which only served drinks. Not the only ones to comment on this.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The church is amazingly beautiful inside, if you enjoy architecture, art, or history, this is a must! The church has an unequaled cemetery, and the grave art is amazing. It is located in a complex with a Matisse Museum, Roman ruins, and the grave of Henri Matisse. Parking is a bit difficult.
