This Genoese-style palace was built in the middle of the 17th century for the Lascaris de Vintimille (a small Italian town near Nice); it was their family home until 1802. Tucked away in a narrow street, the richly coloured and decorated façade of this palace is flanked by old red and ochre buildings typical of Nice's old quarter. The interior is in sumptuous baroque style, the vaulted ceilings are decorated with frescoes above huge sweeping staircases. There are also 12th century furnishings, Flemish tapestries, a recreation of an 18th century pharmacy (and the gift shop). Admission is free.
