You know you're in France when an art-deco elevator transports you into the arms of a waterfall. The site of Parc de la Colline du Château is an opulent feast of greenery rich in history, even if its cascade is an artificial creation. Many significant archeological discoveries have been made on the land, and it was once the site of a medieval castle before it was destroyed in 1706. An endlessly romantic setting with views of the both the Alps and the ocean, it's an integral part of Nice travel.
Once the private residence of a Ukrainian Princess, the peachy mansion now hosting Musee des Beaux-Arts boasts an art collection that span four centuries. The museum first opened in 1928 and was named after Nice native Jules Chéret, who is often called the inventor of the modern poster.
As one would expect from a French museum of modern art, MAMAC offers a sophisticated slice of the contemporary art world. Highlighting Nice's role in important art movements, it displays works of new realists, pop, fluxus, minimal and conceptual art.
The quintessential Nice street-food experience, the chickpea flour variation of a crêpe is a sheer delight. Often served before a meal and enjoyed with a chilled glass of wine, it is served quite simply with a sprinkling of fresh rosemary, sea-salt and course pepper.
