Nice on France’s south coast is a beautiful city located in the heart of the French Riviera. It’s time to discover picturesque Nice.
Nice is very pedestrian-friendly so getting around on foot is easy. If you don’t like walking there’s also trams and buses.
Start your exploration of Nice along the Promenade des Anglais, a promenade along the Mediterranean Sea. It extends about 7 kilometres and offers gorgeous views out to sea. Here you’ll be able to stop for coffee or do some serious shopping.
If you love food, head to Cours Saleya, a market selling fresh produce and flowers. One of the most beautiful spots in the city is at Parc Phœnix, a seven-hectare botanical garden and zoo. Stroll through the flowers and along the lake.
The furthest attraction from the water is Notre-Dame de Nice, a Roman Catholic basilica built in traditional Neo-Gothic architecture. Its beautiful white exterior shines in the sunlight by day and is illuminated by artificial lights at night.
Take a day trip to Monaco where the rich and famous go to holiday. The small sea-side city is gorgeous and offers something even more luxurious than Nice.
Spend time exploring the Riviera’s history and cultural scene by visiting museums and galleries. David and I didn’t have the time to do that but it would have been nice to.
