"The Gem of the French Riviera"

Nice Tourism

Located on the southeastern coast of France, Nice enjoys a privileged spot within the enchanting region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, on the French Riviera. It's a popular destination known for its stunning coastline, vibrant atmosphere, and rich history. The city highlights charming architecture and urban design, culture and scenery that draws in artists from all over the globe.

Nice is the capital of the Cote d'Azur region, France's favourite stop for beachside fun. The iconic Promenade des Anglais, lined with palm trees, provides a picturesque waterfront promenade where visitors can enjoy leisurely walks, bike rides, or simply soak in the captivating views.

Nice's history stretches back to ancient times, and its cultural heritage is a delightful tapestry of influences from various civilizations. Travelers are drawn to the city's Old Town (Vieux Nice), a labyrinth of narrow streets, vibrant squares, and colorful facades that exude a timeless charm with bustling markets, stunning Baroque churches, and an expressive local life.

Nice, famous for bringing to the world the Salad Nicoise, offers a delightful culinary experience. Try the famous local dish, "Socca," a thin pancake made from chickpea flour, or enjoy a traditional Niçoise salad with fresh vegetables, olives, anchovies, and tuna. Don't miss the chance to savor the delicious local wines, such as the Bellet and the Rosé Côtes de Provence.

Beyond its own charms, Nice serves as a gateway to explore the alluring French Riviera. From here, you can easily access other glamorous destinations like Cannes, Monaco, and Saint-Tropez, each offering its own unique allure and experiences.
