Travel Tips for our Clients
Nice is the capital of the Riviera and the largest city along the coast with a population of 400,000. The city is a mix of modern and old world charm.
The Promenade des Anglais is the Riviera's best beach front boardwalk. The promenade follows the Baie de Anges and features 15 different beaches. Many beaches are private and there is a charge to use them with additional charges for chairs or umbrellas. On the opposite side of the boardwalk you find many famous hotels and cafes.
At the eastern end of the promenade you come to the Vielle Ville, or old town, where the streets are lined with cafes, bars and shops. Follow Cours Selaya and, depending on the day and time you pass, a market of vegetables, flowers or antiques. This street will lead you to Marché aux Fleurs, one of the best flower markets in France.
After passing the old town you come to Le Chateau. This hill is where Nice was born in 100 BC. There was once a large castle on the hill, but now the highlight is the magnificent view of the Mediterranean and city. You can reach the top of the hill by elevator, a tourist train or by vehicle.
In addition to the street and beach life, Nice is a city of art, featuring 19 museums and galleries.
