Views of Nice

One of the my favorite travel activities is finding viewpoints where I can take panorama shots of sprawling cities.  In addition to the popular Colline du Chateau, a vista point that I visited on my last trip to Nice, I have explored two more spots that are great for observing Nice from above.

 

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is a large, circular building with a rooftop garden.  From the top of the museum, you can look out to sea or up into the hills of Provence.

Cimiez Monastery Gardens

The Cimiez Monastery Gardens belong to the Cimiez Monastery, which serves as a Catholic church today.  The view from the gardens can be enjoyed all year, though I will be returning to the site when the weather warms to see the plants in full bloom.
