Standing in a magnificent bay, the capital of the French Riviera stretches along the famousPromenade 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 festive old town, elegant Belle Époque bourgeois district and bustling working-class port area, Nice is a city of many faces. Its museums house some of the richest collections of modern and contemporary art outside Paris.
