If you like beautiful gardens with wonderful views then you will love the monastery gardens.The church and monastery is also worth a visit as well as the cemetery ,the resting Place of the painter Matisse.

This is one of my favourite places in the world, it is so peaceful no matter how many people there are, and the views are great too. The gardens are beautiful and watching the wedding parties being photographed is fun.

One hot, sunny morning spent 2 hours in this oasis of tranquility in the urban bustle of Nice, walking down the Bd. de Cimiez and enjoying the "fin de siecle" atmosphere.

My favourite part of Nice besides old town. Beautiful gardens with amazing views of the city. Very peaceful and quiet. Ruins and Matisse museum nearby. I wouldn't recommend the cemetery, which was a bit creepy.

It is a very special place. The building of the convent gives the sentiment of authenticity; the nicest part of it is the garden of the convent; very well kept, very nice variety of flowers. The view overt the town is marvelous. It is worth...More
