“Matisse museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Another small museum that is worth the trip. Matisse's works displayed in a small house is just the right size for anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of time in a museum but who enjoys the artist's work.

loved seeing all of his art at his house. Public bus can seem challenging but it's not too hard to reach. Well worth a visit.

“A beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

Take bus no. 17 from Nice Ville train station to go up to this beautiful villa that houses an important collection of Matisse's works. The exhibition takes you through the development of his life and art, making it easy to understand.

“Olive Grove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Quite a walk from the centre of Nice but very interesting to walk through the beautiful residential areas. After the museum sit in the Olive Grove and watch a game of bouls or people taking a stroll, or just relax before you head back down the hill.
