  • Very beautiful Palace, the Lascaris Palace stuck in a small street of the old town. If there are no banners to report you'd gladly spend next and it would be a shame because he is amazing for three reasons, the first for its magnificent collection of musical instruments, the second for the beauty of the inside, the third for this great idea of revisited, surprising Palace! Dwell you really on these superb instruments exposed, even if you are not a musician, it's amazing! PS: I do not know where this picture of the Lascaris Palace but it isn't I think the theme of the Palace and on the other hand I've never seen this room, it must be a regrettable mistake!

  • Great little museum/property with some fantastic preserved interior design - not very extensive collection but entry includes 9 other Nice attractions so I think it was a good length of time spent
  • built in 17th century. great place to visit
  • Very interesting old palace in Nice. Largely decorated in the baroque style it is a beautiful example of a noble's home in the south of France. It does show the results of restoration, but it seems to be well done and authentic. It can be visited using the Museums of Nice Pass. Will appeal mostly to fans of baroque musical instruments and architecture.
  • Great place to visit☺
  • You could almost walk by this and not see it. Firstly it's very (very) small. However it's gorgeous. The artwork of the ceilings are what you will probably remember the most. Well worth a visit, albeit a short one.
