Nice is quite frankly, very nice indeed! One of the most popular coastal cities in the Mediterranean, it has been drawing in tourists for decades. Back in the day, Britain’s Queen Victoria, not a lady known for being easily pleased, adored the place and returned year after year.
A city full of colour, bursting with flavours and sensations, rich in history and culture. Wonderfully welcoming people, delicious food and the weather is pretty good too
First time visitors are always surprised to find that the city is pretty compact, it’s easy to get around but boasts very distinct areas, each with their own charm. Wide open squares surrounded by cafes and restaurants are the ideal spot from which to indulge in some serious people watching.
Crowded cobbled alleys snaking around the old town, with hidden treasures at every corner. Don’t miss the traditional markets where you can find fresh local produce and quirky crafts and antiques
Outside the maze-like confines of the Old Town, Rue Bonaparte is the new go-to place in the evening. There are some fabulous restaurants and bars and the area is the home of the city’s lively gay scene.
The port area also boasts some great eateries and is a good base for visitors who like a bit of peace and quiet without being too far from the action.
If youwant to live like the Niçois then stay in Carré d’Or, choose an apartment in one of the elegant Belle Epoque buildings in the wide boulevards close to the Opéra and enjoy watching the world go by apéro in hand from your wrought iron balcony, oh la la!
