Images Of Nice

Capital of France's illustrious Côte d'Azur, Nice is, if you'll pardon the expression, nice. The city's best known strip, Promenade des Anglais, boasts amazing views of the city and overlooks Nice's rocky beaches, making it a haven for sun worshippers. But don't worry if lying motionless on your back isn't your thing. Nice has fascinating museums, one of Europe's most charming old towns, while it is also the gateway to the rest of the Côte d'Azur, meaning both Cannes and Monaco are right on your doorstep.

    Nice, France

    Nice is a fun city with plenty to do and see. The water is amazing and has the best colors of blue. Although, true to French stereotypes the city and beach is littered with trash.

    Insider Tip:Spend 2 days max.

    Nice adventure

    Nice was a great city, old town was filled with lots of little shops! It was hot and sunny and perfect for the beach, people were very friendly.

    Great place to relax for a few days

    See title -- there's not tons to do here but if you've been traveling for a while or just want a place to relax and enjoy the beach, this is it. You can also take some day trips to Cannes, Monaco, Monte Carlo, etc. I didn't do these things as I just wanted to relax in Nice but I heard that they were worth checking out but really just full of rich people. Nice is an expensive city so probably wouldn't stay that long.

    Insider Tip:Check out the castle!

    My favourote city

    Nice never fails, from the beautiful clear blue sea to the markets and of course the weather. I've been here a number of Times and love walking around the French streets and such easy access to Italy and beyond.

    Insider Tip:Walk up to the chateaux at sunset, great view. Get the quick trains to Monaco and Italy. (San remo) is a must. The market starts at 6pm until midnight which has some unique buys. You may come by some rude French people...this is normal!
