Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Cagnes-sur-Mer / Chateau-Musee Grimaldi
A castle turned into an art museum, Chateau-Musee Grimaldi is one of the finest pieces of architecture you can visit. Occupied first by the Greeks and then the Romans, the château was built by a French admiral. The view from the tower of the chateau is spectacular and moving inside the corridors you will feel that you have entered into that ancient time when this place used to be occupied. The view is great with the Alps standing right all around you and the valley just below the museum. Some great and interesting art works and antiques are displayed here. There is also an elaborate coverage of the treatment of olives during that time which is quite fascinating.

Was a rainy day so ventured out from nice by bus. Free connecting bus up to the old town. Chateau only 4 euro entry, most displays closed when we visited. Art displays interesting. As happens in..... more »
A very small medieval town, but a very beautiful one. It's nice walking around in it, certainly worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood. The square is a nice place to have a drink and / or eat something.
Small and nice museum inside the castle. Great view to Nice and area. Max 1 hour for visit.
