An active monastery overlooking Nice. Take your time slowly wandering about the gardens that are kept up by the monks and other volunteers. There are great viewpoints that overlook Nice.

Small monastary that is free to visit in Cimiez. It is nice to escape the heat during the day in Nice. Would recommend to combine this visit with the garden and the little Roman museum.

The church was very beautiful. We walked around the cemetery for a while - very interesting. And the views from the garden were breathtaking.

With Parc de la Colline du Château, Monastère de Cimiez are the best places in Nice: silent, serene, green. There are no crowds, no crazy motorbikes – just trees and grass, flowers, birds singing, the air is fresh. It was such a pleasure to walk...More
