NICE AT A GLIMPSE
Discover “Nice la Belle” - Nice the Beautiful. Situated on the southeast coast of France on the French Riviera, Nice is the second-most-visited destination in the country receiving at least 4 million tourists annually, who are as though magnetically attracted by the city’s exceptional climate, year-round sun, beautiful waterfront and the Mediterranean Sea.

The fifth largest city in France is also a genuine kaleidoscope of history, and as Nice has only been part of France since 1860, its mixed heritage displays the unique blend of French and Italian in architecture, colors, cuisine and lifestyle. The city’s Art Deco buildings amuse people from all over the world with their stunning Belle Epoque style, Baroque houses and mansions. Elegant and simple, the cafe terraces on the famous blooming Promenade des Anglais are always packed with happy travelers who enjoy the views and beaches of Nice.

It is a very lively place to visit - each part of town is filled with colorful markets, unique boutiques and charming cafes. Here are some of the places you don’t want to miss:
  • Promenade des Anglais
  • The Vieux Nice (old town)
  • The Colline du Chateau (spectacular vantage point 90 meters above Nice in the ruins of an old castle)
  • Palais Lascaris
  • Cours Saleya (renowned daily flower and fruit market)
What is more, Nice is also a city of art and culture and has many unsurpassed museums. Check out the famous Matisse Museum located in a 17th century Genoese villa or the Musee de Malacologie museum of seashells. Don’t forget to try the local cuisine: taste the vegetable and tuna sandwiches known as Pan Bagnat, the Salade Nicoise or the renowned Ratatouille made of tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini.
