The neoclassical Italianate architecture of Massena Museum was inspired by the Rothschild villa in Cannes. A very skillful restoration of the historic gardens was conducted in 2006-2007, which restored the original luster of the aristocratic mansion. The villa is surrounded by a courtyard, a French garden, and a great lawn. Wander past remarkable plants, such as the Magnolia grandiflora, Araucaria excelsa, Melaleuca, and Brachychiton populneum.

  • Surprisingly more interesting than I expected. Much more than the Residential Villa in golden finishing that I thought it was. It's a great trip through history. A storyteller of the City development into a holiday winter destination of North European aristocracy. Includes excellent examples of fashion jewellery, outfits and memorabilia. Highly recommended. The garden is also worth a stroll.
  • Small museum - lovely pieces but no English translation or handbook so didn't really understand much. Rating 3 stars as we felt as though we were being chased through the villa by the security guards! A bit unwelcoming. However till staff were lovely!
