The city of Nice is located on the French Riviera in Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur. Blessed by a sunny, temperate climate, Nice attracts visitors from around the world. Among its many attractions are its beautiful beaches, lovely seaside promenade, interesting museums, and famous city landmarks. As soon as you arrive, you'll enjoy the exotic charm of the celebrated, palm tree-lined "Promenade des Anglais." During your free time, you can sample local specialties (pissaladière, socca, farcis niçois...) and admire the warm, ochre façades of the Vieux Nice (the old town). The city is also the ideal departure point for exploring the French Riviera and the stunning hilltop villages that dot the surrounding countryside. Easy day excursions are available from Nice to Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Monte Carlo, Cannes and to other nearby towns.
