The main historic parts of Cimiez are close together and the photos look great in the guide books. BUT IT IS COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE TO PARK ANYWHERE NEAR THERE. SO WE COULDN'T VISIT. Queen Victoria may have loved Cimiez, but she didn't have to park a...More

The museum is in France, the speakers speak French-this is a complaint of some, but it shouldn't surprise you. Materials are in Italian, French, and English. If you get the day pass..you pay 10Euro and you have a pass to see all city museums for...More

This museum has some great artifacts and nice diagrams showing how the heated floors worked and the layout of what the city would have looked like. The ruins are definitely worth seeing. I didn't like having to buy a 10 Euro ticket to get into...More

Having lived here some time, I never thought the Roman ruins at Cimiez were more than a few little ruins, certainly not the extensive thermal baths, coliseum, market and virtually a whole town! There's a nice little museum and also you are right next to...More

A quaint museum with interesting artifacts for sure. Nice wasn't really billed as a top spot to look at Roman Ruins, but we found the Ruins of Roman Baths accessible through this museum to be very worthwhile.

Nice historical site but completely lacking explanations. You can take a flyer when entering but it is printed in such low quality that it is very hard to follow.

You get a perfect view of the region throughout the centuries - and I even picked a perfect recipe for the sauce for a - oh, how do you say "sanglier" (wild pig) in English?

The museum is nicely done but smallish. What is most interesting is the visit of the ruins outside (included in the price of the ticket) that give you a good idea of what it must have looked like. I particularly like the baths

Ancient ruins and a small museum showing artifacts dating back thousands of years. Their Roman section is especially interesting with one statue of Julius Caesar ( if I have recalled correctly?) which looked like it had just been finished. It is cleverly positioned in front...More

Oui, le plupart de musee est sur le rez-chausee. Il y aussi une salle en bas mais je ne sais pas s'il y un ascenseur. Pour explorer les ruines, ca depend de poussette mais la plupart est avec les chemins assez biens.
