Nice

Your travel guide for Nice
With its wide promenades in front of the deep blue sea, the picturesque alleys of the old town and its magnificent churches and city palaces, Nice embodies the lifestyle of the Côte d'Azur like hardly any other place. As early as the 19th century, the southern French port city of Nice was a popular resort for the rich and famous - and even today, Hollywood stars still flock to the city. While the yachts bob in the harbor and the Mediterranean Sea surges against the pebble beach, Nice's museums magically attract cultural travelers. After all, works by Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse can be found here. In the old town, it's the baroque church of Saint-Jaques-le-Majeur that catches the eye alongside the colorful markets, while you can delve into the city's past in the Cimiez excavation district.
