Where to stay in Nice

  • This is a bright airy, and modern museum. Plenty of modern art on show, with a combination of fixed features and temporary exhibits. A ticket here will get you into the other art museums in Nice for 24 hours so it is really good value. Don't forget to visit the roof garden on the top. You have some great views down towards the sea and up towards the mountains.
  • The permanent exhibits gave a very interesting look into the recent history of art in Nice. This museum is free if you are a student (otherwise €10). The museum also has a terrace where you can get some great views of Milan! Definitely worth the visit, especially if you are a student.
  • Nice museum, free if you're a student. Not too much to look at, but definitely check out the view from the top floor. There are beautiful bridges, too – a good place to take pictures, if you wish.
  • I visited this fantastic museum 2 weeks ago and I can say that's a interesting place to spend a little time. Here you can find everithing about modern arts. I suggest you to go there if you can!
  • Deserve a visit. The summer 2017 exhibition with arman, klein, cesar, ben is just a must!
