    The Quintessential French Riveria Town

    Since Queen Victoria made this her favorite vacation destination in the 19th century, everyone has been heading south to discover what is so nice. Nice doesn't disappoint.

    Whether you fly in to the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport or you’re on your way back on a ferry from Corsica or Italy, be sure to stroll along the famous pebble lined beach and enjoy the tantalizing goods on offer from Cours Saleya Market.

    Climb the winding leafy path to the top of Parc de la Colline du Château and gaze down upon the expansive aquamarine dream that is the Côte d'Azur. Just behind this park is the famous Cimetière du Château, a haunting reminder of a bygone era. Masterful art of all eras is proudly hung in the Chagall Museum, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and Palais Lascaris. The cultural experience doesn't end there, with archaeological museums and delightful churches like the Chapelle de la Miséricorde scattered throughout.

    Treat yourself to fine dining and appreciate a glass of local wine in the old town before strolling back to one of hundreds of available hotels from Booking.com. Your vacation is sure to be a “nice” one in any of our accommodations!
