Nice sits on the Mediterranean coast in the South east of France. A place for the young and older generations with so much to offer. A gem of a city on the French Riviera coastline that attracts many a visitor all year round. Those needing a summer break or those seeking some winter sun.
In the 18th Century the British aristocracy made it a number one winter spot to travel to, and the great walkway along the seafront was made and has gathered its name from these times, "Promenade des anglais". Beaches, seating spots and the sun all combined with the sea has made this walkway a special place to be.
Away from the gorgeous blue of the sea at the front you can take in "Old Nice" and the romantically delightful medieval part of town. Cobbled and narrow streets with local shops, restaurants and small open air markets.
Seeking fresh air around the city is never a problem. The sea air by the front or you can escape just a short way to the hilltops and take in views and vistas that make you fall in love with the whole area. Art lovers have much to choose from in the city. The French Mediterranean views and sea air has inspired famous artists down the ages and the local museums have some great options to see from archaeology of the Roman Empire right up to Modern Art.
For culinary tastes there is so much to choose from. There is the restaurant diversity you would expect from a tourist destination but you cannot go wrong with local specialities. The markets in Nice are famous for food lovers. Fish, olive oil and vegetables all very local and unique. Gorgeous food taken of course with a local Rose Wine. Special.
Nice is a gorgeous spot in a gorgeous climate. It is no wonder people have been discovering and coming back for so long.
