Nice Old Town
0.4 miles from downtown
‘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 $45 a night
Palais des Congres Acropolis
0.7 miles from downtown
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
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. The parkland has fabulous manicured gardens, zoological and botanical gardens, containing rare blooms that will enchant even the most seasoned gardener. The Kenzo Tange-designed Museum of Asian Art - filled with treasures from the far east - lies within the park.

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. Lemon-coloured lo-rise apartment blocks, palms swaying in the breeze, and cheerful mums with kids are ubiquitous sights.

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.

Nice has something for everyone, thanks to the French Riviera's warm sun, pristine beaches, and beautiful landscapes. Walking down the famous Promenade des Anglais is a great way to check out the best coastal sights. You can even rent bikes, skates or scooters to explore the 2.5-mile stretch even quicker.
The city's true essence is in the old town of Vieux Nice. This network of narrow alleyways has remained largely unchanged since the 18th century, and is full of boutiques, brasseries, and bars. The highlight is the daily flower and food markets of the Cours Saleya, where you can try local specialities like pissaladière (onion tarts) and pan bagnat (a bread roll packed with Nicoise salad). On Mondays, the square turns into a flea market selling furniture and unique sourvenirs.
Although Nice's coast consists mostly of pebble beaches, the turquoise waters are perfect for a swim. If you're looking for a sandy beach, head to the nearby towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer, Antibes, or Cannes. The Colline du Chateau is a great vantage point for panoramic views over the Baie des Anges and the rest of the city.
Nice is also famous for its museums like the Musée Matisse, Musée Masséna, and Museum of Modern Art. And for visitors who want a touch of some Monte Carlo glamor, there's an express train from Nice to Monaco that takes about 20 minutes.

“Amazing place for walking in an evening, beautiful views and walkers. Great to swim in a morning”
“fantastic lively place which something is always going on. You cannot miss it.”
“The other plaza of Nice, this one feels real, where you see the locals and the students and the tourists intertwine effortlessly. It is also the gateway to the wonderful Bonaparte are of town with its great Bistros and little shops, much better value and more charm than the touristy old town! LOVE IT”
“Galleries Lafayette is the place to shop. It's like Selfridges or House of Fraser in the UK. There are also lovely independent shops. ”
“What a beautiful historic building. BUT don't ever book seats in the 5th tier. I paid €100 for two seats (5th tier) to see Mozart's Magic Flute - a dream come true. BUT the seats were appalling - they were far too small (for full blown adults) - only suitable for children under 10 years old - hard - too close together - too erect. It ruined the whole experience and many others - at least 50% - had to stand up - and we had to leave at the first interval - impossibke to stay ! It's the worst seating I've ever suffered any where in the world. I complained to the Director, but was rebuffed arrogantly, contemptuoudly, dismissively. We were not warned that the 5th tier seating was so appalling - and the Director just responded contemptuously - no hint of an apology. SO UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCED SHOULD ANY ADULT BOOK SEATS IN THE 5th TIER. DONT DO IT !!!!!”
“Go to the flower market - the smells are wonderful. There are lovely cafes and restaurants and you are very near the Opera and Maison Auer, a must for confectionary fans!”
“Yves Klein , Nikki de st Phalle and Ben great local artists The museum,s own architecture us amazing as is its souvenir shop ”
Nice is the "capital city" of the French Riviera, from where you can easily get to so many towns (including Monaco and Cannes) in a single day.The promenade is so beautiful to walk along. Very memorable and romantic.
Nice is a wonderful city with many different areas to visit and stroll. It's by the sea, lots of restaurants, beautiful gardens, sculpture and architecture. The train is convenient and will take you to most towns on the riviera in 20 minutes. A wonderful place to base yourself and explore the French Riviera.
Gorgeous views of Mediterranean. Castle Hill was so worth it! Elevator is free if unable to do climb. Much to see. Restaurants fabulous with very friendly people. I could have stayed here for weeks, just love the French Rivera. We took 20min train to Monoco, and crowded there but interesting. Do the climb to the Castle.
The promenade and the many beach clubs along the shore, watching the planes come and go from one of the most unique airport landing spots in the world, touring the bustling streets seeing the many different restaurants, the early morning markets and the ice cream.
One of the most wonderful places on earth. Excellent shopping with much variety. People are very friendly. Fabolous Promenade des Anglais for walking, relaxing, people watching. Great variety of restaurants but some can be pricey. City is clean. Airport very adequate, no hassle . Easy to get around. Public transportation modern , Efficient, cost Euro 1:50. Visit the Fragonard Perfume store. It is great. Take the Big Red Bus for a great tour. Visit the Massena Palace and the Memorial to the Victims of the terrorist attack a few years ago.
Great Ciry to be right on the sea & visit nearby Cannes, Eze, Monte Carlo, Antibies. The French food is delicious! Enjoy! Visit the cute hilltop town of Eze, shopping in St Tropez, & relaxing on a sandy beach in Cannes at a beach club. The beaches are rocky in Nice, but the beach clubs there ( typically 20 Euro each for the day ) are quite nice with restaurants on site. Champagne in the grocery stores is as low as 5 Euro a bottle which tastes great! Prices generally quite good for restaurants, hotels. We rented a car for 8 days & the deisel was only 40 Euro for driving everyday to all the cities along the coast & hills.
