Palais Lascaris review Rate it

Construction of this magnificent if rather sombre villa was begun in 1628 by the Lascaris-Ventimiglia family, from whom it was taken during the Revolution. A century and a half of neglect saw it reach a dilapidated state until the City of Nice acquired it in the 1940s and converted it into what it is today, a historical monument. Working upwards, you'll find on the ground floor an 18th-century pharmacy, while the broad Baroque staircase leads through a series of rooms and landings decked out with frescoes, tapestries and some assorted statuary. A captivating collection of antique musical instruments on the third floor is, however, the most likely thing to detain visitors.
