Located in the French Riviera, Nice rests along the pebbled shores of the Mediterranean Sea and is the second largest city in the region.

Whether you’re enjoying a plate of ratatouille, marveling at a Matisse masterpiece or taking a leisurely stroll through the Vieille Ville, your day is sure to be full of culture, exquisite food, and natural beauty. With over 4 million tourists visiting the city every year, it’s obvious that Nice is a city that has something for everyone.


1. Stroll along the Promenade des Anglais

Named after the city’s countless number of British expats, the Promenade des Anglais is a large walkway along the Nice seafront. A world-renowned stretch of coastline, and arguably the most famous in France, this idyllic walkway is surrounded by the crisp, blue Mediterranean Sea on one side and picturesque galleries, shops and bistros and the other. The Promenade was built in the 1820s, and it has since become an important place where locals and tourists alike socialize, celebrate local festivals and enjoy the sea air.
