Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Nice / Massena Museum
The neoclassical Italianate architecture of Massena Museum was inspired by the Rothschild villa in Cannes. A very skillful restoration of the historic gardens was conducted in 2006-2007, which restored the original luster of the aristocratic mansion. The villa is surrounded by a courtyard, a French garden, and a great lawn. Wander past remarkable plants, such as the Magnolia grandiflora, Araucaria excelsa, Melaleuca, and Brachychiton populneum. Plan a trip to Nice easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Impressive museum with loads of portraits of famous French historical figures and old posters of various kinds in amazingly furnished baroque rooms. The view from the outside is stunning. I will never get tired of palm trees and bright green grass around beautiful old buildings.
