With a rich cultural and historical heritage, Nice is a town on the French Riviera with many faces. Just 30 km from the Italian border, it stretches along the Bay of Angels, between mountain and sea. Renowned for its stunning Promenade des Anglais and beach front filled with luxury hotels, Nice’s warm climate draws visitors from around the world. From the backstreets of Old Nice to the Azur beach front and woody parks, you are bound to fall in love with Nice’s warm and colourful atmosphere. Discover the old town and a maze of streets filled with interesting shops and picturesque houses. A tour of Old Nice and Cour Saleya wouldn’t be complete without trying the world-famous local dishes, like “socca”, a flatbread made from chickpeas; Pan Bagna fish soup; the classic Nicoise salad; or the pissaladière, a pizza-like dish native to the town. Nice is also a lively town with lots of festive events such as the Nice Carnival, with its “big heads” and chariots, and the Nice Jazz Festival. You can also explore Baroque châteaus and palaces, as well as art galleries and museums. The Asian Art Museum on the Promenade des Anglais, the Marc Chagall Museum, the Henri Matisse Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Cimiez by the ruins of the eponymous Gallo-Roman village are all must-see destinations! Surrounded by hilltop villages, Nice is an authentic Mediterranean stop on the way to the Mercantour national park and ski resorts.
