When you have Côte d’Azur in mind, the city of Nice – one of its gems, comes up instantly!
A city of flowers and Carnival, sun-soaked promenades on the Baie des Anges, great palaces and business hubs. Nice has a buzz about it that could be compared to Los Angeles!
The rolling hills in the uplands thrive among the olive and fruit trees to form Nice’s hinterland. You’re just a stone’s throw from the coastline in amongst little hilltop villages like Eze, Sospel, Peillon and La Turbie that still exude age-old charm.
Bask in the sun in the heart of the city on the 7km long Promenade des Anglais and take a break on the beach or on a bench with sea views after grabbing a slice of socca and pissaladière, two local specialities that you HAVE to try.
Stroll into Nice old town, a village in a city, and Cours Saleya famous for its markets, restaurants and bars whose brightly coloured buildings will warm your heart all year round. The narrow little lanes will bring you a breath of fresh air when summer is at its peak.
Lose yourself in the maze of traditional lanes in this Mediterranean gem packed with quaint boutiques, bars and restaurants that couldn’t be more “nissart” in style or in the conversations that you catch as you walk along.
At the end of the day, you enjoy the Nice coastline and its Baie des Anges (Angel’s Bay), whose colour varies with the weather and as the day goes on, can turn into exceptional shades of turquoise.
Magic takes hold and you won’t be able to get “Nissa la Bella” out of your head. Its incredible light and living standard has enthralled artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Renoir before you.
Nice is exciting, Nice is dazzling, Nice is your chance for a great adventure and experience of its very own lifestyle.
