the Monastery is perched above the city of nice and has some great views. The garden is nice to walk through and the site has close proximity to the Matisse museum and the museum of archeology with access to some old Roman ruins.

I really enjoyed my time here at the gardens. They were impeccably managed and it was quiet and peaceful. Here is cathedral next door whose side doors open up into the gardens. Some church goers were coming into the gardens after he service was over....More

Very well organized, beautiful flowers, view over the sea, nice garden. Sometimes you will meet strange folks, but everybody behaves in the garden.

The gardens were absolutely lovely! We had packed our lunch and had a picnic there. All the flowers were blooming and there was such a lovely scent in the air! There was a really good view of the city from the gardens.

Adjacent to the Monastere, the gardens have superb views over much of Nice and have many shady spots for a packed lunch. Take time to inhale and appreciate the many different scents of the plants in bloom. Late May seems to be a particularly good...More

Though this place can be a little difficult to find, it's so worth it when you do. It offers beautiful views of the city and is a great place to unwind and be at one with nature. The gardens are simply stunning.

I was always interested in going to Cimiez. You can take the 15 bus from behind Mangos Avenue Jean Médecin. It costs 1.50 €. Beautiful and peaceful location with a nice view over the city. Take the time to also have a walk around Cimiez....More

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!
