An absolutely beautiful setting with gardens that have not been altered since they were established in the 1500s. The views over Nice as just as spectacular. We didn't visit inside the Monastery but we understand there is a small museum there as well.

Not long is needed in the church itself. The paintings on the walls appear to be in the process of renovation. Where they have been taken down, copies are in place. Would have appreciated some more information about them. Not much natural light in the...More
