Along the leafy avenues and boulevards that characterise this area, you’ll find numerous Belle Époque villas and ornate apartment buildings surrounded by lush and exuberant gardens. The hill is crowned by Le Régina completed in 1897 and built to satisfy the demands of Her Majesty who honoured Nice with her presence for the next three springs. Matisse also enjoyed the open vistas and a museum in his memory is located close to the Roman amphitheater and Franciscan monastery close to the park Arènes des Cimiez. Don’t miss the breath-taking views out over the Bay of Angels from the lovingly tended gardens.

Public transport

The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.70 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.

Please be aware that at the airport the ticket machines only allow you to buy round trip tickets for 10€. To buy regular tickets (1.70€) you have to take the tramway from the airport to the next stop (grand Arenas) for free, get off the tram, buy the tickets (a card you can top up) at the machine and get on the next tram (be prepared for a line of people trying to understand how it works and up to 30 minutes waiting time).

Old and antique objects that feel like family heirlooms are embraced and rural paintings decorate the walls. Patterns are floral and colours of olive, terracotta, lavender and sunflower yellow are deep and bright, but look faded.
