  • Discover such an architecture in a "Palace" located in a small street is a real delight. It is not mandatory, but I advise to do the tour

  • During a return visit to the Lascaris Palace we note with pleasure the return of fish argentes entrusted by the Prud'homme of the fishermen of Nice to the city and shamefully stored in reserves for several years.

  • 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.
