Nice is a destination that attracts many visitors. Located between the sea and the mountains, the city enjoys sunshine 300 days a year. Strolling through the small shady streets of the old town, alone or with a guide, admire the baroque-style buildings, with their red and yellow facades, which follow one another. Go to one of the port’s bistros to savor local dishes prepared with local produce: pissaladière, petits farcis, socca, zucchini flower fritters, etc.
The famous Promenade des Anglais is an 8 km long avenue that runs the length of the Baie des Anges. It was financed by the British who stayed there during the winter. Nowadays, children ride their bikes and roller blades, sportsmen and women practice running, and lovers walk along it, hand in hand, while enjoying the view. You can observe it from the park of the Castle Hill, a major tourist site in Nice. During your stay, let the transparent water come and tickle your toes on the small gray shingle beaches of Nice, after a stroll along the promenade.
In February the Nice carnival is held. Colorful floats and dancers parade through the streets day and night during this magnificent festival that celebrates the arrival of spring.
