The ‘Queen of the Côte d'Azur’

Mediterranean maritime climate

16 degrees

1 hour and 50 minutes

The 'Queen of the Côte d'Azur' is sheltered by hills that are filled with vineyards, while the Mediterranean Sea lies at her feet. It is centuries old but still majestically beautiful. A hospitable lady who will do anything to make your visit as pleasant as possible... What other place could offer that but Nice.

Places to visit in Nice

Nice was “discovered” as a seaside resort very early on. Influenced by the many affluent English tourists, construction started back in 1822 on the long boulevard: the Promenade des Anglais. But this Mediterranean jewel has much more to offer, of course. The many narrow alleys in the city centre are an invitation to explore the historical heart of the city. Traffic isn't allowed, so there is plenty of room to enjoy the baroque churches and many museums. The MAMAC (Museum of Modern Art) is particularly popular among visitors, but the Regional History Museum is also a must-see on your trip to Nice. The museum is located in Palais Lascaris, a Baroque palace built in 1648 and famous for its monumental staircase. Cours Saleya is a bustling square in the old centre of Nice. Every morning, the market for flowers and other fresh produce opens for locals and tourists. On Mondays the Cours Saleya turns into a flea market.

Discover Nice

Nice is in itself a beautiful destination, nestled on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea with hills of vineyards and orchards in the background. For those who fancy a bite to eat after a day of shopping, strolling up and down the promenade and sunbathing, there is plenty of choice. Italian influences have enriched the Mediterranean cuisine in this region. They serve Socca, a pancake made of chickpea flour and olive oil that's the perfect tasty and cheap snack between meals. Or go for the famous Salade Niçoise, which originated right here in Nice.
