Many consider the city of Nice to be the capital of the French Riviera. From year-round sun and famous blue chairs to Art Deco architecture, museums and evolving restaurant scene, Nice, unlike its glitzier coastal rivals, has something to offer for every budget. The city is a popular destination for vacationers of all ages.
Castle Hill (Colline du Château) lets you enjoy a beautiful panorama of the Bay of Angels with the dramatic backdrop of deep blue waters of the Cote d’Azur. Fringed by the famous Promenade des Anglais it offers miles of the loveliest urban sea-front in Europe. Many events take place there including the annual Carnival and the Battle of Flowers. One can spend an entire vacation hanging out at the Prom (as the locals call it).
Museumgoers will enjoy the choice of over twenty museums and municipal galleries in addition to a large number of private contemporary art galleries and artists’ workshops. The most popular ones include the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art, the Matisse and Chagall Museums.
Nice’s center is easily walkable. Enjoy the architecture of old city quarters, main square Place Massena, food and flower market Cours Saleya and the main shopping street Avenue Jean Medecin all within walking proximity. However, don’t fret if walking is not your thing – the city has a great public transport system or you can explore by bicycle.
