Don't miss this beautiful cloister garden when you are visiting the Matisse museum. It's just nearby and very well worth that few extra steps. From here you'll have a 360 degrees view over Nice and the "Baie des Anges". Spectacular!

Interesting history, beautiful chapel, gardens are small but makes a nice walk around and the views overlooking nice are lovely, need to combine this with museums next door otherwise its a bit of a trek and may not be for everyone.

Peaceful gardens with a lovely view over the city. Serviced by the hop-on hop-off tourist bus. Beautiful plants, folk playing boules, and a wee cafe for a spot of lunch. Perfect.

The gardens of the monastery were worth the uphill walk! Lots of beautiful flowers and trees, spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Panoramic views across Nice...a tranquil space.

This garden is a paradise for everyone who likes to spend some time amidst the smell of blossoms, who likes to enjoy some time in peace far away from the noise of the town...

Our trip was organised by the department of shore excursions with everything included and our French guide took care of us. I am very sorry, I do not want to give a false information
