Quite a walk from Nice central to get here, but well worth the walk. The Cathedral seems to rise out of nowhere. They are very strict about no photos inside the Cathedral. And it is free to enter. The gardens around the Cathedral are also...More

No photos allowed inside, but I can tell you it's quite simple, blue and beautiful! But outside it's stunning and set in a quiet, tranquil part of Nice. Definitely worth the walk to view this beauty!

Due to a hospital visit when we were last in Nice, I missed seeing this place. This trip, we made it. A beautiful building and grounds and a place for quiet contemplation. Very picturesque, but, photos are not permitted inside the building.

A lovely Cathedral worth a visit whilst in Nice. Looked very nice inside and out. Ladies be aware you have to have shoulders covered, and definitely no shorts!!

This church is so different than any of the other European churches. It is definitely worth a visit while in Nice! Note: no photos are allowed inside the church

THE most intricate piece of architecture I have ever laid eyes on. It is even more beautiful in the flesh to the point I was actually taken aback. The church is enormous and has a grass park with benches and gravel for you to sit...More

If you visit one place...this has to be it. We were fortunate to be involved in a baptism and it made the visit even better

It's worth walk to see this church which is an unexpected delight! The interior is mostly done in blues and has a impressive display of icons and a nice gift shop. Unfortunately no photos allowed inside.

I have seen many people in a wheel chair around this area so I would say yes it is possible. Be aware of busier times for crowded space throughout the flower market on the earlier part of the day.

The train is much better - you will reach Nice in 30-40 mins I think, there is sometimes quite a lot of traffic on the corniche roads so better to avoid that. If you like walking, the old town can be completely covered on... More
