Planning your Visit to Nice

About Nice

The refined capital of the French Riviera has fast become one of Europe’s favorite Mediterranean playgrounds. Sun-drenched Nice offers visitors everything from seaside strolls to baroque architecture - all the elements you need for a classy French vacation.

Formerly a key stopping point for elite Europeans doing the classic “Grand Tour”, Nice now attracts tourists from across the world. People come here for the coastal vibe, and to visit iconic places along the French Riviera. Monaco and Cannes are both within easy reach.

The social scene in Nice is buzzing too, with high-end restaurants and upmarket art galleries all vying for your attention.

Good to know before arriving

Most of Nice’s attractions are within walking distance, so exploring on foot is the way to get about. Trams and buses are available for longer journeys.

Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, Nice is a year-round vacation destination. It gets busy in summer, so spring and fall are often a better bet.

First-timers love staying in Vieux Nice (the Old Town) which is where you’ll find the atmospheric cobblestone streets and historic attractions. Prefer to be based near the beach? Then choose a hotel in the Promenade des Anglais area. Note that the beaches have pebbles rather than sand, so don’t come expecting to build any castles.

Places and experiences that cannot be missed

Guided bike rides and boat tours are fun ways to discover a different side of Nice. You’ll be treated to some spectacular views and will get to explore places that are often missed off standard excursion itineraries.
