  • Worth a short visit - remarkable building in a strange location! Feels like they could do more to help with the history  more »
  • It's worth a visit, even if there's no explanation. We missed the guided tour, it's a pity it looked interesting. A lot of recollection on the part of the faithful. Lots of beautiful icons everywhere, including beautiful ones with tiny beads.

  • Very beautiful. Women wearing shorts grab a sheet to drape around your legs to meet dress code policy. No speaking or photographs inside the church either. We were able to snap one interior photo from behind a pillar. Highly recommend the trip out to see it. Free entry.
  • We walked from the coast. Great way to walk through various parts of Nice. The neighbourhood where it’s located isn’t the most appealing to the eyes however it was worth it. The exterior is very photogenic. Woman cannot be uncovered however they do supply scarfs to cover up properly.
