This place is definately worth a visit. Although badly ruined, it makes your mind run wild about how it must have been in Roman times!

Nice parc to escape the heat and crowd in the center of Nice; It is worth the bus trip because there are not many tourists. Combine this with the small Roman museum and Musee Matisse

Not worth a trip on its own but combine it with the nearby museums and it's worth it. A cool area of arena ruins.
