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 - pretty seaside city

    Nice is a good base for exploring the french riviera. It's waterfront makes for a pleasant walk. The old port and the old town are also worth visiting.

    Insider Tip:Get the train to Monaco or anhother resort on the riviera such as Cannes or Ventimiglia in Italy.

    New Year's Eve

    The old city is very pretty and it was really organised well: ice skating ring, Ferris wheel.. What was disappointing is that there weren't any fireworks and not even a count down to midnight.

    Nice, a beautiful city for life-lovers

    Nice is beautiful - that is the first thought that goes through my mind thinking about Nice. A pretty city with a beach with the bluest water and a green park on top of a hill - which gives a beautiful sight over beautiful Nice. If you love great food, a dip in the ocean or a stroll around the city getting amazed by churches, government buildings or just houses - you will love Nice. I'm coming back.

    Insider Tip:It's not an insider tip, but a recommendation - you have to climb the stairs to the park on top of the hill. The park is relaxing but the view is breathtaking (so are the stairs!)

    Cobblestone streets and historic architecture

    I loved the narrow cobblestone streets of Old Nice. I also liked the Cours Selaya daily markets and its historic architecture and botique shopping places.

    Insider Tip:none
