Musee Matisse Approx. Time: 3 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

The vibrant red walls of this 17th century Itallian villa sits triumphantly on a hill, just above the center of Nice, just steps away from the Hotel Regina where Matisse lived. The museum was modernized in 1993, creating additional space. Matisse, who lived in Nice from 1917-1954 donated a majority of the museum's collection. The art now takes up 18 rooms and two floors. The museum chronicles the talented artist's work from student to master.
