About France


Explore picturesque Old Nice and its surroundings. The famous Cours Saleya, the colourful markets, the baroque chapels and churches and the labyrinth of pedestrian streets will offer some unusual discoveries and exciting tastes. watering!
Stroll through the elegant Place Garibaldi, with its building facades rendered with Sardinian ochre, and end your walk with an exploration of the magnificent Promenade du Paillon, a ribbon of greenery stretching from the National Theatre to the sea. Its 12 hectares take you on a botanical journey with the promise of trees in blossom throughout the year. For your children you’ll find a selection of life-size sea animals sculpted in wood on which they can play to their heart’s content.
Our tip: Walk, take the lift or the tourist train to the Parc de la Colline de l’Ancien Château and lose yourself in its maze of greenery. And while you’re up there, admire the stunning views over the Baie des Anges, the roofs of the city and the port.
Nice is like an open-air museum; it’s full of spectacular modern works of art that add to its Belle Epoque, Art Deco and Baroque architecture. Just raise your eyes and marvel at so much diversity and refinement. Then head off to the museums and galleries (many of which are free) to see the Nice School, Matisse, Chagall and Niki de St Phalle collections and the works of many other artists.
