The thought of visiting a cemetery is certainly not one that appeals to everybody. However, bathed in light and overlooking the city from the hilltop at Cimiez, this one hardly inspires morbid or lugubrious thoughts. Practically all the graves are very old, the majority being individual miniature white-marble chapels, some of which are adorned with beautiful sculptures. But the true allure of this cemetery lies in two graves in particular: those of painters Raoul Dufy and Henri Matisse, who both ended their days in Nice. Dufy's is a small, discreet grave, and very low, it is almost hidden from view and a little difficult to find. To point you in the right direction, head for the gate that links the Monastery garden to the cemetery.
