An entire city at your feet
Get to know a typical French provincial town. As the fifth largest city in France, Nice stays lively and busy all year round. Explore the old city center by foot: there are large pedestrian areas boasting a variety of hotels, shops, cafés and great restaurants.
Don’t miss, of course, beautiful historical monuments such as the Notre- Dame-de- Cimiez Monastry, the Russian cathedral Cathédrale Orthodoxe Russe Saint-Nicolas as well as the Nice Cathedral.
Save some room in your luggage, for Nice is also a good shopping destination, with a range of boutiques and shopping centres at your disposal. You’ll also find one of the best flower and food markets in southern Europe: the Cours Saleya.
