Nice's Top Five

Hit the Beach!

Soak up the sun, go for a swim, or just sit and gaze at the beautiful blue of the Mediterranean Sea. You’ll see why so many artists (Picasso, Dufy, Matisse, Renoir, Chagall) found inspiration here.

Appreciate the Art

Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse, two iconic 20th-century artists, both have museums dedicated to their works here.

Climb Castle Hill

Take an easy hike up Castle Hill for stunning views of the majestic coastline and the port. Pack a picnic or enjoy a sandwich and a perfect cappuccino at the charming café.

Enjoy Socca

Try this savory pancake made of chick peas in Cours Saleya, a market in the heart of the Old Town, amidst stands of colorful fresh flowers and produce.

Cycle the Cote D'Azur

Rent a Vélo Bleu (Blue Bike) and pedal down on the promenade to the adjoining fishing village of Villefranche-Sur-Mer, one of the most beautiful places on the French Riviera.

While there is undeniable knowledge and pride in being a local, the marvel of being a tourist cannot be replicated.

It may have been your first time leaving home, attending a new school, or going to a place where you knew no one. Trying to adjust resulted in some mistakes.

Bon Appetit: Eating, Buying, and Cooking Food in Nice

by Emma

I have been living in France for one month and have not come into contact with escargot. As a kid, I believed that this was all the French ate, perplexed by their ways. As I grew older, I began to understand that this dish was not something the French ate every day, or even at all. In my class last week, my professor asked if the French students ate the dish and they responded with a resounding "no" amid one "on occasion". The cuisine of the French is complex, but I learn more each day.
