Things to do around Nice

Set off to discover Nice and the surrounding area! Nissa la Bella means dolce vita opposite the Mediterranean with beautiful Belle Epoque facades, the Promenade des Anglais, its old town… but there’s also a unique backcountry with hilltop villages and a magical natural heritage. Nice is unique, that’s for sure !

Head for Nice

Nice is the capital of the Côte d’Azur, and sunshine all year round or nearly! Discover a mythical Promenade which is an invitation to sit down and observe this enormous pebble beach on the Mediterranean, a maze of narrow cobbled streets and colourful facades, and the flower market on Cours Saleya … Nice also means shopping sprees in the famous “Galeries Lafayettes Masséna” and the view from the Colline du Château over the incredibly blue water… So, feel like going there?

Discover the country behind Nice

Leave the towns of the Côte d’Azur behind you to explore the backcountry ? Get a breath of fresh air in the natural areas of the Côte d’Azur! If you’re a hiking enthusiast or you just love breathtaking landscapes, take to the trails of the Mercantour or PréAlpes National Parks. A nature break which will add to the beauty of your experience on the Côte d’Azur! But if you’re more of a sea person, don’t miss the Iles de Lérins, a legendary group of islands opposite Cannes.

Plunge into the land of scents and the cradle of holiday destinations

Nice and the surrounding area are exceptional and have been awarded the precious UNESCO label in several categories: “Nice, the Riviera capital of tourism”, “Nice, winter holiday town on the Riviera” and “Grasse, the skills related to perfume in the Pays de Grasse”. These noble awards confirm the ideas of the people of the Côte d’Azur – that they’re living in a little paradise.
