If you need an excuse to visit Nice, the Chagall Museum alone justifies a trip. Marc Chagall donated the art to the museum and actually was involved in determining where his work should be placed in it. His most memorable paintings, illustrating the first two books of the Old Testament—Genesis and Exodus—are part of the museum’s permanent collection. These are stunning large-size paintings that capture Chagall’s genius.
Admission to the Chagall Museum is free on the 1st Sunday of every month and for EU residents under 26 years old. It is located on Avenue Docteur Ménard- (Angle Bd. de Cimiez). To reach the museum, take bus No. 15 Rimiez behind Galeries Lafayette, and get off at the Chagall Museum stop. It’s a very lovely walk downhill of about 2 kilometers on your return to downtown Nice.
All the best,
