Nice Old Town
0.4 miles from city centre
‘Old Town’ has amazing light in every season. It casts shadows of the baroque Cathédrale de Sainte-Réparate, refracts from the ochre-and-harvest coloured houses along its narrow lanes, and swathes in to Place Rossetti. Once here, buy a gelato in classic or new-fangled flavours at Fenocchio, then fan out for dinky boutiques and gourmet eats.

Vieux Port is a sepia-toned postcard from the past. European aristocracy came here for getaways during the 19th century and today it's like they've permanently relocated here. Spot the million-dollar yachts, exclusive seaside diners in and around Rue Bonaparte, or shop for curios in the Quartier des Antiquaires ('Antiques Quarter').
Places to stay from £43 per night
Palais des Congres Acropolis
0.7 miles from city centre
An elegant strip within shouting distance of Old Town. The quirky Tête Carrée (‘Blockhead’) sculpture-come-house sets the avant-garde tone for the area. Try the MAMAC (Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art) for its Warhol’s, Klein’s and Lichtenstein’s. The Nice Acropolis satiates the commercial appetite with its constant rotation of trade shows.

Nice City Centre
In the city centre
Centre Ville’s magnificence is best seen from the breezy comfort of a Vélo Bleu bike. Arcaded 17th-century buildings, painted in shades of gold and terracotta, border Place Masséna. Cross the square for a trio of commerce, culture and fine dining, or head to Promenade de Anglais to breath in the real-deal – a vibrantly azure Mediterranean Sea.

The biggest draw card of this primarily residential area is the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Fine Arts Museum). Its small but uplifting collection includes the likes of Fragonard, Monet, Degas and more. For the rest, it’s sweet and sleepy – you’re likely to see mothers push their baby buggies gingerly uphill along streets lined with trees.

Everything in Arenas circles around Park Phoenix’s gravitational pull.

Gambetta is a sleepy suburb of Nice. Locally referred to as the ‘Russian District’ after the shops here that cater to the community, it’s also home to a handsome Russian Cathedral on Rue Tsarewitch.

Riquier is slightly grittier than the suburbs that surround it. However, a recent revitalisation project has injected the area around Palais de L'Esplanade with new life. Sushi shops, no-frills eateries and low-key cafes cater to the large student population. It’s also within easy reach of the centre and the coast.

Located on the scenic shores of the French Riviera, Nice offers something for everyone, thanks to its endless sunshine, sandy beaches and wonderful landscapes. A stroll down the famous Promenade des Anglais is a great way to soak up the best seafront sights, and you can even rent bikes, skates or scooters to explore the four-kilometre stretch.
However, the city's real essence is found in the old town of Vieux Nice. This narrow network of meandering alleyways remains largely unchanged since the 1700s and is full of boutiques, brasseries and bars. The undeniable highlight is the daily flower and food markets of the Cours Saleya, where you can sample local specialities such as pissaladière (onion tarts) and pan bagnat (a bread roll packed with a Nicoise salad filling). On Mondays, a flea market selling furniture and trinkets is held in the square.
Although Nice's coast is mostly made up of pebble beaches, the turquoise waters are still perfect for a swim. If you do prefer a sandy beach, take a jaunt to the nearby towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer, Antibes or Cannes. Offering soaring views over the Baie des Anges and the rest of the city, the Colline du Chateau makes for a great vantage point.
Nice is also renowned for its museums, including Musée Matisse, Musée Masséna and the Museum of Modern Art. For those wishing to experience the glamour of nearby Monte Carlo, you can catch an express train from Nice to Monaco in around 20 minutes.

Very beautiful plage, from the castle breathtaking view for the coast. Pleasant atmosphere, happiness, sunshine, I was able to bath in the sea even in May. Good opportunity for long walks and to travel to cities, villages nearby fast.
As well as being a beautiful, fun, interesting city, it is such a good base for exploring the French Riviera, cheaply and easily. The beach is pebbly but there are some lovely beaches a very short distance away either by cheap public transport or by driving.
The Police are crooks - I purchase a ticket to Ride the bus from the airport and the Police ask to see my bus ticket then ask for my passport then pull me off the bus. Then told me I had to PAY them 40 euros or They will take my passport and take me to JAIL !! This was enough to make me go back Home -I was Tramatrize and Afraid - It is a bad look for Framce.
The city of Nice is very beautiful, the Arte Deco architecture everywhere is so French, with interesting decorations and details. The French Riviera is just like a paradise! But the weather is not as warm and sunny as Granada and Seville in Southern Spain and the food not as good.
So much to see and do - as well as spend hours people watching on the beach and Promenade des Anglais! The Hop On Hop Off bust tour was a great way to see the major sites - would definitely recommend a few hours in Villefranche. We also did a walking food a tour, a fabulous way of learning some of the history of Old Nice and trying some local delicacies. We ate at a traditional restaurant, Lu Fran Calin, couldn't recommend it highly enough. In all, a brilliant way to spend 4 days.
The city has a pretty center (Nice Ville). Here you can spend one or two days visiting all the places and add a few days for the pebble beach (no sand) You can feel you are in the South of France. Just remember that public transport is only running until 21:00, there are a few lines that continue to midnight, but those are only a handful. The city does go to "sleep" quickly.
