Just a 30 minute bus ride from Nice, France. Forego overpriced tours and use local bus. Suggest taking time off and visit this often missed jewel

We were stunned by this chapel the first time we visited when there was some repair work going on to the floor. This time we were able to sit and absorb the peace and serenity of the chapel and marvel at the mosaics, the stained...More

There's not much to say. It's a pretty open chapel with some interesting art and sculpture. Interesting and free to see with the Cote d'Azur card. Only takes a few minutes to glance at. Not something I'd consider a must-see in St-Paul-de-Vence.
