With Le Chateau being close to where I am staying in Vieux Nice, I took another walk. This walk took me to The Israelite cemetery with some views overlooking Nice and a few sunsets.

Cimiez is about. 35 minute walk from Centre Nice. You must be in good physical condition. An alternative is to take the bus from Centre Nice. Along the walk you will pass beautiful residences in the Belle Epoch architecture and some very nice views over the city.
Cimiez is a very pleasant area with breathtaking views across Nice toward the sea.
Matisse Museum is located here and is devoted to Matisse's work. It is known to have one of the largest collections of his work. Open daily except Tuesday and the entry is free.
The museum is surrounded by Olive Gardens.
On the grounds, is located the archeological museum and roman ruins. The roman ruins are from 3rd and 4th centuries BC and subsequently chosen by Augustus as the site for the Capital City of the ALPS Maritimes province.
About a 5 minute walk to the Franciscan monastery and Cimiez cemetery where Matisse is buried. The grounds contain a magnificent Rose Garden.

I ended at Villa Keryles which according to the guidebooks is the main attraction before reaching Villa and Jardind Eohrusdi de Rothschild and Cap Ferret but will save for another day.
This is a stunning home and garden.

Many of NIce's delightful attractions are on or close to the waterfront. I am renting an apartment in OLd Town about a 5 minute walk from the waterfront and the Cours Selaya market. There are also restaurants, small grocery stores and everything you need within a short walk.
Framed by the Chateau, the Old Town of NIce is the best place to capture the city's historic feeling.
It is easy to get lost in the narrow streets. I began my walk at the Cours Selaya in the morning when the market is in full swing
Today I was on a photographic adventure to capture the essence of Old Nice.
