  • Just costs a couple of Euros, or included if you have a museum pass, worth a quick look, to see what used to be there years ago.  more »

  • The crypt opened for visitors in 2012. I read about it prior to our visit to Nice and looked forward to seeing it. A nice lady at the Tourist Office told me there would be tours in english. And It was to be expected, since the crypte is to be found on several lists of touristattractions in Nice. How surprising, when I called the center to make reservations and was dismissed by the lady on the other end of the line. Not only couldn't I make reservations, because there are no tours in english (or italian or any other language for that matter), she wasn't very polite about it either. There is not even a brochure in another language, in order to make it possible to follow a frenchspeaking guide. To my knowledge, many visitors in Nice doesn't necessarely speak french fluently. And I suppose the lady who took my call never travels outside of France. My point is that the crypt doesn't deserve to be on lists over what to visit in Nice. On those lists you should find attractions worth visiting for visitors.
  • Interesting tour. There are layers from middle ages, back to 11 hundreds, and further back all there. The guide was very good, and seemed to know a lot. Tour is in french, but the guide kindly gave us an English summary at each step in the tour. Not very interesting for younger kids, especially if they don't speak French . But good for adults.
  • It was closed. Couldn't find information about it.
  • Tour only French-speaking. Very nice to see and well worth visiting.

  • The guide explains the luminous scenography has taken water twice in one year and will not be replaced. Result, we are left with a guide that asks us to imagine what it was beautiful with the lights. This place gives a picture of the establishment of the city of Nice from the beginning but disappointed by its ridiculously small course. This isn't really a must visit.
