Stroll the Promenade des Anglais to experience the epitome of the riviera, then take a mini-tram to the chateau gardens high above Nice for astounding views over the ‘Bay of Angels’. Head to Old Town for an atmospheric stroll down narrow streets that will offer a glimpse into the city’s cultural past, rent a bike to explore further, or take a bus to nearby Monaco (see below for more) for a flutter on the roulette wheels.
Tip: Nice has miles of beach to explore, but bring your flip-flops as it is quite pebbly! If you’re after find sand, head to nearby Menton.
If you can’t decide what kind of holiday you want, Nice is the answer. With heavy influences from nearby Italy, this French city is an atmospheric and authentic delight, combining the best of a beach and city break into one perfect package.
