Palais Lascaris hotels
If you are smitten by the architectural charm and magnificence of historic monuments, then France’s Palais Lascaris, located in VieuxNice, should top your list of must-see attractions. For sheer external beauty and internal opulence, this Baroque-style palace, built during the 17th century for the Vintimille-Lascaris family, has few equals. Much of the palace’s original grandeur has been restored over the years, as evident from the exquisite frescoed walls, luxurious furnishings, antique furniture, ornate, sculpture-lined staircase, and intricate stucco decorations. Today, the Palais Lascaris is also a museum, and remains a popular landmark of immense historical and cultural value.
- Get an eyeful of over 500 different musical instruments of antique value, including early 18th century amateur musician, Antoine Gautier’s personal collection, at the Palaiz Lascaris Museum, Nice.
- See exactly what 17th century Vieux Nice patients saw in the well-preserved pharmacy, located at the ground floor, which still retains its old-world ambience and charm.
- Visit the “Keyboard Alive” exhibition, which features several rare keyboard instruments, like the lavishly embellished, 17th century German organ, two original Forte-pianos, which Mozart played on, and more, all in playable condition.
Palais Lascaris is located in the heart of the much-visited, historic town of Vieux Nice, making it easily accessible by bus, bicycle, car, motorcycle, and even by foot from the town centre. Just six kilometres away is the city’s international airport, from where Express buses as well as cheaper, local buses connect the city’s main train and bus stations. Although taxi, bus, and car rental services operate across the city, the cheapest and most enjoyable way to get to Palais Lascaris or to explore the city is by scooter or motorcycle, or better still, by the new, ‘Velo-Bleu’ public bicycles.
