Named after Nike, the goddess of victory, who was believe to have helped resist an attack by the Ligures, Nice is located close to Italy and has a lot of Italian influences. Italian is taught in the schools alongside English, and is spoken all round the city. Nice cuisine also offers a number of Italian dishes.

Things to do in Nice

Nice has the highest number of museums in all of France. The Musée Matisse has a collection of paintings spanning the career of former resident, Henri Matisse. This is the same with the Musée Marc Chagall and the major religious works of its namesake.

 

If art is not especially your thing, and you enjoy the uniqueness of a pebbly beach, then perhaps you will enjoy the beaches to the side of the Baie des Anges or a walk along the bay of the famous Promenade des Anglais.

 

With centres such as Sophia Antipolis and Acropolis, Nice has also become a hub for research in advanced technology, science and industry. Visitors are also attracted to the city’s architecture of Baroque influenced mansions and houses located on the hills of Mont Boron and numerous other buildings of the Belle Epoque style.

 

A visit to the city is incomplete without a stop at the parks and floral gardens of the Espace Massena or Chambrun park. Nice is known by many for its exceptional beauty, charm and wonderful climate.

Nice Castle Hill

Located on a hill overlooking the city’s Old Town, the Castle Hill park also known as le parc de la Colline du Château, offers stunning views of the city below. The five best view points from this location are a view of the airport and mountains, a view of the Bay of Angels from the Bellanda Tower. The castle also gives you a view of Belvedere, another of the pretty Cascade du Château, an artificial waterfall and a view of the hill of Mont Boron and the harbour.

 

The castle can be explored by elevator but it is recommended to take the stairs for the best experience. Visitors can also end their tour with a walk through the castle cemetery for a beautiful sunset and a most unique view of the city.

Discover the Old Town of Nice

A visit to Nice would be incomplete without a walk through its Old Town. An area with buildings of colourful facades and Mediterranean shutters, and shady alleyways to enhance the comfort of your stroll. Old Town is also home to Cours Saleya, the famous open-air flea market where there is always something to eat or drink on one of its many terraces.

 

You could also explore the Rossetti Square for its home made ice cream shops or the Saint Francis Square for its little fish market. There is also the Courthouse Square also known as Place du Palais de Justice.

Nice beach Nice beach
Going to the beach in Nice

While it might not be the most comfortable beach in the world, it is definitely a picturesque one. And with the right foot ware and beach mats you might be able to enjoy the Nice beach. It is however also not great for swimming or snorkelling, as the water gets deep very quickly. Due to these factors, visitors much prefer to try Castel beach at the foot of Castle Hill, or Villefranche sur Mer and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat where numerous nautical activities are possible.

Nice walking tour

If you enjoy a nice, long walk, then a Nice walking tour would be a great way to discover the city on foot. A walk from the Nice Old Town and the Cours Saleya and then on to the Promenade des Anglaisto and Massena Museum in the Villa Massena, not forgetting the Negresco Hotel. Then back to Congrès street where you can find a pedestrian area; a great place to stop for lunch or a snack and drinks.

 

The tour continues along the Promenade du Paillon where visitors can see the Nice water mirror, and then on to Garibaldi Square, all the way to Parc Vigier and Coco Beach.

Nice Cuisine​

The rich and delicious cuisine Niçoise is enjoyed by guests to the city. From Salade niçoise, the great classic salad of the city, to the culinary specialty that is Socca, a slighty creamy creation made from chickpea flour. There’s also the Pan Bagnat, a sandwich version of the niçoise salad, and the daube niçoise, which is beef stew.

 

It would be a sin to visit this city without trying its cuisine, the pride of the niçois.
