Ville de Nice

With its exceptional architectural heritage, its unique climate and remarkable light, its miles of seafront and verdant gardens, its gastronomy and Mediterranean lifestyle, Nice – the capital of the French Riviera - is sure to win you over.

Not far from the Paris-Nice Village, you can explore the old town, the city's bustling heart and a window to another world of irresistible delights, with its magnificent listed market, its narrow, quaint streets, its artisans, its Château perched on the hill offering a stunning view of the city, the Baie des Anges and the port... not to mention the little restaurants bearing the “Cuisine Nissarde" label where you can sample some typical Niçois fare...

There is something to see or do in Nice all year round, from international sporting events to local traditional cultural festivals, the Christmas market, the Nice Jazz Festival and the famous Carnival... In Nice, you’re never short of ways to have fun.

And for thrill seekers and nature lovers, the countryside surrounding Nice offers a wide and varied range of authentic activities: from diving with dolphins or whales to spotting wolves in the Mercantour park, exploring the Vallée des Merveilles and its 40,000 protohistoric rock engravings, visiting cliff-top villages or its skiing area - from November to March the region boasts more than 700 kilometres of snowy but very sunny slopes...

Nice, a dynamic and refreshing destination in more ways than one!
