Bring coins for the toilet, grounds were not well maintained, view was lovely. Olive grove disappointing and grounds need attention.

This garden in the upper part of Nice offers its visitors unique look-out points. The Port as well as the surrounding hills are to be seen from this garden

Unfortunately I don't remember the bus-number anymore, but it won't be difficult to ask any bus driver. You simply ask for a bus to monastère de Cimiez. Good luck and enjoy!
