We were in Nice for 2 months and we walked everywhere. Every corner and building is a master piece. If you love history and beauty you must go there.

This was our favorite in Nice and we visited many of the other major museums and galleries. Gorgeous house and ambience. Time travel back to yesteryear. Very popular with the teenager too. Schedule extra time to sit in the garden and rest.
