The area and getting around

Discover the jewel of the French Riviera

The seaport city of Nice is the capital of the Côte d’Azur, a spectacular stretch of coastline washed by the sun-kissed waters of the Mediterranean Sea in the Alpes-Maritimes department of France. Nestled between the mountains and the sea, it offers a mild Mediterranean climate and over 300 sunny days a year. The city boasts many natural and cultural attractions, all within walking distance or well connected by public transport. The Old Town is home to art galleries, souvenir shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, which you can discover on your own or with free guided walking tours. The off-season peace and quiet in November sharply contrasts with the crowded streets in the summer months. Or maybe you would prefer to immerse your senses in the flower market and take home a bouquet. Nice is also a perfect base for visiting other jewels of the French Riviera, such as Marseille, Antibes, St. Paul-de-Vence, Cannes and Monte Carlo. It is also located just 20 kilometres from the Italian border, so you can enjoy a day-trip to San Remo, Turin or Genoa by car or train.

Travellers and related activities

Nice, a perfect seaside getaway

Nice’s beautiful beaches, connected by a 15-minute bus ride along the coast, are gently washed by the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Looking for fun in the sun? Your best bet is Òpera, Voilier or Sporting. Looking for peace and quiet? Carras or Castel are your best options. Soak up the sun, take a cool dip, enjoy a drink in a chic beach bar or take a leisurely stroll along the spectacular Promenade des Anglais, whose 4 kilometres span the entire Nice coastline. It takes its name from the upper-class English tourists who used to promenade with their parasols. Famous visitors include Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill and dancer Isadora Duncan.

Nice, a destination for history lovers

But beyond its picture-perfect beaches and stunning landscapes, Nice boasts a rich history that you can discover in its ancient archaeological ruins. Did you know that Nice was named after the Greek goddess Nike? Nike (or Nicé) personified victory when the city formed part of the Greek empire in 500 BC. Also, the ancient Roman city of Cemeneleum -the current chic residential quarter of Cimiez- was the capital of the Riviera for over 400 years and similar in size to Pompeii. If you head up to the Gardens of Cimiez you can still visit the ancient Roman coliseum and a 500-year-old olive grove!

The people of Nice are called Niçoise, like the famous salad, and have their own dialect called Nissart!

Top 5 travel tips

1. Picturesque historic quarter

Nice’s charming historic quarter is well worth a visit, so dedicate some time to explore its many art galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. Or how about taking a trip back in time visiting historical monuments such as the Croix de Marbre, a white marble cross built in 1568, Bellet castle, Lascaris palace or the historic Massèna square? These and many other hidden treasures await you around every corner!

2. St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral

The French Riviera was a very popular tourist destination for Russian noble families in the 19th century. So finding a spectacular Russian church in the city centre should come as no surprise! Currently recognized as a national monument of France, it was consecrated in December 1912 in memory of Nicholas Alexandrovich, Tsarevich of Russia, who died in Nice.

3. A history in art

If you’re into art, the Matisse Museum is a must-see. Just a short bus ride away, the building was once home to Henri Matisse and houses one of the world’s largest collections of his works. Matisse was just one of the many artists attracted to Nice because of its unusual light. Other famous names include Picasso, Renoir, Cocteau, Modigliani and Chagall.

4. Sidewalk cafes

Need a break? Have an aperitif at one of Nice’s many charming 19th century cafes, many of which are over a hundred years old. Take a seat and marvel at the unique décor. The Café Turín or Trappa, open since 1886, are a must. If it’s time for afternoon tea, they’re the perfect spot to eat some sweet pastries or chocolates.

5. Flower market

Nice’s flower market is a real treat for the senses. An incredibly picturesque market full of vibrantly coloured flowers whose wonderful fragrance fills the air. It is located in the narrow streets of the Old Town and is open every day of the week except Monday. Here you’ll find the best local and organic seasonal produce, fresh seafood and locally produced olive oils.
