Musee et site archeologiques de Cimiez
Situated on one of the city's most prominent hills, far from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, Nice's archaeological museum is renowned for its remarkably well-preserved Roman baths dating back to the 2nd & 3rd centuries C.E. Objects on display, such as vases and jewellery, have either been found during excavations or brought in from other archaeological sites. A small store offers a range of books on the Cemenelum (Cimiez) site and Nice in general, as well as reproductions of some museum pieces.
