2- Monastère de Cimiez
This monastery on a hill, north of the center, was founded by the Benedictines in the 19th century. It arrives along the Boulevard de Cimiez, one of the most impressive streets of Nice, with extraordinary hotels and palaces of the 19th century. The Gothic buildings of the monastery date back to the 14th and 15th centuries, with delicate frescoes from the 1500s. But most visitors make the climb for a single purpose: to see the gardens, with flowerbeds, topiaries, geometric lawns, pergolas and a terrace with an incredible view of the city. These gardens are the oldest on the French Riviera, designed in 1546.
