  • Nice Cathedral, was closed when we went there even though it was during opening hours? Impressive from outside though
  • Well worth a visit but not a life-changing experience.
  • Beautiful, peaceful, and nice. Only 3€ to get in
  • Excellent day very interesting I loved the whole experience walking around the area's its must if you are in town
  • Mustsee including the 'museo' (3 euro's). The tower visit will cost you 1,5 euro extra.
