Nice lies at the heart of the French Riviera in the Alpes-Maritimes region of France. The Greeks, Romans and leading figures of 19th Century society were all captivated by its climate, fresh seafood, wine, pebbled beaches and turquoise sea, laying many of its cultural foundations.
The city has a great tradition of attracting great artists, with museums dedicated to the classic painters Matisse and Chagall, as well as being a centre for modern art at the Villa Arson and Museum of Contemporary Art. Away from the long sun-drenched beaches of the Promenade Des Anglais are beautiful squares such as the Cours Saleya and Place Rosetti, perfect to soak up the city’s atmosphere at any time of day.
Another picturesque square is the Place Massena with its green space, and lines of fountains cooling off playing children and scenic views toward the hills, and from here you can easily access the maze of bustling streets of the charming Old Town leading to the harbour. Nice is also a great place to use as a base for exploring other parts of the French Riviera, with easy bus and train connections to Cannes, famous for its annual film festival and Monaco, haven for the super-rich.
