A seat of the Roman city of Cemenelum, whose ruins are still visible today on the Cimiez Arena site - which held for many years the Nice Jazz Festival - the area was home, for almost a whole century, to the European elite in its magnificent palaces as the architect Regina Donohoe, the Winter Palace, the Majestic, the Riviera Palace, the Grand and Petit Palais ... All are now highly sought after residential buildings.

 From a cultural point of view, the hill of Cimiez houses the Cimiez Monastery and cemetery where Matisse is buried, the Chagall Museum and the Matisse Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Nice Cimiez where you have arenas, an early Christian basilica and baths. Many squares, parks and groves are also fun to browse. The gardens of the Monastery of Cimiez are highly appreciated for their rose garden and unique views of the sea and the city of Nice. Meanwhile, the Festival du Cloitre features the finest performances by international soloists in the gardens that surround the cloister works located at the head of the Franciscan church.
