Nice The Essential
Highly recommended
Standing in a magnificent bay, the capital of the Côte d'Azur stretches along the famous Promenade des Anglais facing the Mediterranean. It is laid out around two vast squares, Place Masséna and Place Garibaldi, named after two characters who symbolise the city's French and Italian identity. With its lively old town, elegant Belle Époque district and bustling port area, Nice is a city of many facets. Its museums house the richest collections of French modern and contemporary art outside Paris.
