About Nice

If you are looking to soak up the french Riviera vibe, there is no better place to do it than the city of Nice. Pronounced as the word “ Niece” rather than the much expected “ Nice”, it is the unofficial capital of the Côte d’Azur and the fifth largest city of France . It is a place where on can tap into the unlimited reserves of affluence of the old world charm. Nice experiences round the year sunshine like no other french city and offers a stunning seaside location boasting of the best sceneries. This combination makes it a hard to miss destination and a major tourist hub. Nice is a big port city which appeases to the vacation choices of people of all age groups. The ethnically diverse Nice is known for the beautiful view on the Promenade des Anglais, which is its famous waterfront and one of the best places in France for strolls. Some of the most noteworthy attractions of Nice include the Colline du Chateau which overlooks the Baie des Anges and harbour. This place is the ideal vantage point overlooking the city and offers mesmerising views. Even though the castle is pretty much in ruins with bits left in crumbles, that 90 metre climb up to the top is still worth it. There are several important museums that Nice is famous for, including the likes of Museum of Asian Art, Parc Phoenix and Musee Chagall. The old town known as Vieux Nice, is beneath the hill and is a maze of streets and alleys with many picturesque houses and boutiques. The cliff walk in the old port area offers a wonderful walking experience surrounded by beautiful surroundings. The beaches are scenic but infamous for prickly pebbles dotting the sands. The public beaches make for a stony yet unforgettably pretty experience. Head for the heights of Mont Boron to experience some of the most exquisite views of Nice from the vantage points. Baroque influences are hard to miss on the housed lined on the way to the top of this hill. Nice has an astounding architecture finely preserved over time. Basilica Notre Dame is the finest example of Nice’s architectural feats and is located in the heart of the city. The most inviting aspect of of city is its unique climate perfect for those summer tans.

Lap up your visit to one of the romantic spots to gaze at the gorgeous sunset.

Local Culture - Thanks to the rich history of the region, Nice enjoys a distinct cultural identity with Corsican and Italian influences. The cultural highlights of the city include the annual Nice Jazz Festival and The Carnival in February, both of which among other such fests and events, attract hoards of tourists from around the globe. The best way to explore the local culture is by treading on the ochre drenched streets and alleyways of Nice

Dining - The food culture of Nice is a unique affair. Nicoise cuisine has its own set of specialities. Olive oil is a necessary ingredient and many dishes are garnished with the special Nice olives. Famous dishes include Petits Pissaladieres, Pan Bagnat, Salade Nicoise and the Ratatouille. Socca, a chickpea flat bread, is another a local specialty. Seafood is a prominent feature in most food items.

Things to Keep in Mind - The beaches in Nice are a visual treat but a painful one if experienced closely. The shores are full of pointy pebbles and walking barefoot is a bad idea. Make sure to carry along essentials like sandals and a easy to move chair if you plan on sitting. The traffic in Nice can be terrible and walking might be one of the better options.
