This weekend throughout France, you can visit many monuments, museums and places of interest for free or at reduced cost as part of the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine (European Heritage Days).
For families, it’s a great way to introduce your children to history, art and culture with lots of activities on offer and guided tours, seminars or workshops.
As well as well-known tourist attractions such as the Matisse Museum in Nice, many of the locations are only open on these special European Heritage Days so you can visit historic villas or places that don’t often have public access.
Some of the participating locations on the Côte d’Azur include:
Musée Picasso in Antibes
Musée Renoir at Cagnes-sur-Mer
Moulin Forville – Musée Victor Tuby in Cannes
Musée de la Castre in Le Suquet in Cannes
Abbey de Lérins on Isle Saint-Honorat
Musée Bonnard in Le Cannet
