What you will see and do in Nice:🏖️ Beach 🏖️ Ocean 🏖️ Sailing 🏘️ Town 🏨 Resort 🗼 Landmark
A must: the Niçoise salad, a fresh mix of lettuce, tomato, egg, and tuna.
To be enjoyed on the sunny terrace of a brasserie, preferably with sunglasses...
Lavender, herbs from Provence, and some typical embroideries.
Beware of counterfeits, however, so as not to end up with "made in China".
1) Stroll along the Promenade des Anglais
Stroll without restraint on this magnificent maritime passage offering an incredible view of the turquoise sea and the Baie des Anges.
2) Have a drink on the port of Nice
Located on one end of the Promenade des Anglais, the port of Nice is a very friendly place. It's the perfect place to have a drink while watching the great diversity of boats: small fishing boats, yachts, ferries, etc.
3) Take beautiful pictures on the castle hill
Almost a hundred meters above the old town and the harbor is the rocky castle hill. The hill is covered with holm oaks, pines, and cypresses... and it's the ideal place during your vacation in Nice to enjoy an exceptional panorama of the city, the port, and the Baie des Anges.
4) Get lost in the narrow streets of the old town
Near the Promenade des Anglais, you'll find the old town of Nice, the ideal place to discover numerous artisan stores, markets, ... and enjoy a lively and warm atmosphere.
5) Awaken your senses on the Cours Saleya
Welcome to the main pedestrian street of the old town! The Cours Saleya is a place not to be missed during your vacation in Nice to live a real culinary experience. Cheeses, spicy smells, roasted chickens, local products, fougasses,... enough to fill your eyes (or rather your mouth). You will also discover a charming flower market, full of colors. Take the time to drink a coffee, and observe the incredible life and animation around you.
6) Savor a delicious Nice specialty: the Socca
This kind of thin pancake made of chickpea flour, cooked in olive oil, will be a delight for your taste buds, to be eaten without moderation during your vacations in Nice!
7) Contemplate the Roman ruins in the Cimiez district
In the Cimiez district, you will have the opportunity to discover the ruins of the ancient Roman colony: the arenas, the thermal baths, etc. Then head towards the Cimiez monastery which has a beautiful garden, ideal for a relaxing walk!
8) Visit the Saint-Nicolas cathedral
Another place not to be missed during your vacation in Nice: the Saint-Nicolas cathedral. Built by the Russians in 1912, this cathedral is one of the most important Orthodox cathedrals (outside Russia). Its visit is really worth it so don't hesitate!
9) Sunbathing on the beaches of Nice
After having eaten the Socca, it's your turn to make the crepe on one of the sandy beaches of Nice. You can of course sunbathe and swim but also opt for water activities such as canoeing or jet skiing.
10) Admire exceptional works of art
For those who have a thirst for art and culture, Nice also offers different museums to discover, among others, the Marc Chagall museum (Cimiez district), the Matisse Museum or the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
