Nice, Cimiez

A residential hill just minutes from the center of Nice

Cimiez, located minutes from downtown on the hill of the same name, is exclusively residential. 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.

 One lives in Cimiez for its large apartments and modern Bourgeois luxury residences with terraces and garages, some with magnificent sea views, or in exceptional mansions, most of which are Belle Epoque inspiration and largely restored. The area also houses the National Conservatory, which offers a center for dance, classical music and dramatic arts, as well as the park and castle Valrose, where the University of Sciences of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. The school of Cimiez, meanwhile, offers a profound dissemination of culture in order to perpetuate the rich artistic heritage.
