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.
