Petit Futé's opinion on CEMENT ARENAS

Plate millesim 2022

Located on Cimiez hill, these arenas are classified Historical Monument. Real open-air archaeological museum, they form an enclosure of 67 by 56 meters and is one of the smallest known Roman amphitheaters in France. Built by the Romans in the first century BC the "Cemelenum arenas" were the scene of many events: gladiator fights, games and other great shows held there regularly in the pure traditions of the Roman Empire. Today, with a capacity that is estimated around 5,000 spectators, they have a beautiful setting to host some Nice cultural and folkloric events. Just next door, the park with the same name is an ideal place for a picnic in the middle of olive trees, close to the Matisse Museum and the Archaeological Museum.

Belles arênes bien conservées. Les musees d archeologie et Matisse sont à 2 pas, le monastère de Cimiez à 200m. Le bus 5 vous y emmène règulièrement, en passant par le musée Chagall.

Situees au coeur de Cimiez, les arenes sont un vestige du passé de Nice. Il n'en reste plus grand chose, mais il est agreable d'en profiter quand vous passez par le parc pour vous promener ou visiter le musée Matisse. Autant les combiner pour doubler le plaisir !
