Avenue du Monastère de Cimiez
+33 8 9270 7407 (Tourist Information)
The parkland extends over the hill of the chic residential Cimiez district, presenting a different panorama at every turn. It includes a charming olive grove, Roman amphitheaters and a monastery garden, which together make up a rambling paradise. The olive grove and amphitheaters provide the perfect setting for hosting the annual Nice Jazz Festival
and folk fairs. The archaeological museum is also worth visiting, especially in view of the fact that Cimiez, formerly Cemenelum, was the heart of Nice in antiquity. Admission is free, except for special events.
