The first thing I did on entering the museum of modern art, apart from a brief spirited dialogue with the officious person on the desk, was to head up to the roof terraces from where I took these photos.
The building itself is in the shape of a hollow hexagon so there are lots of terraces, objets d'art and views to see. I was quite lucky because there were only a few of us up there possibly because it was hot or maybe because it was lunchtime. The paths are fairly narrow and I don't think I would have been comfortable up so high in a crowd.
The photos show the Acropolis, a modern conference centre, to the north: the museum entrance which, I thought, looked scruffy: the view south east(ish) over the old town and a glimpse of the plaza in front of the Theatre of Nice and MAMAC. You can just catch a glimpse of one of the installations there on the left.
I must have been up there for 45 minutes until the midday sun drove me back inside...
