Nice is one of the most important destinations and cities on the French Riviera thanks to the sea and its mild, year-round climate.
The city offers really picturesque corners and many museums and attractions to visit, but you should choose your area well according to your travel needs.
Old Nice is the heart of the city, the old town with a style reminiscent of Liguria: narrow streets, colourful palaces, markets and truly picturesque corners. It is the area to choose if you want to experience the city in close contact with the locals and have every attraction at your fingertips.
Those who love the charm of yesteryear and prefer to admire the more authentic life of a city should stay here: wandering around rue Segurane and rue de Foresta you can breathe in the Nice of poets such as Nietzsche who lived here along with numerous poets, writers, painters and philosophers, in place Arson watch the game of Petanque, in rue Cassini eat the best couscous in town and in place Garibaldi wander among the stalls of the antiques market.
Another very central area is the one that gravitates around this busy square in the most business and shopping district. Ideal for shoppers.
This is the right (and quiet) place to eat authentically and genuinely, trying out the various little touristy restaurants that abound in the areas most frequented by travellers. Ideal for those who don’t stay out late at night but still want to enjoy Nice at night.
Those who shy away from the mundane and the crowds can take refuge in this elegant and quiet neighbourhood characterised by magnificent buildings dating back to the Belle Époque period.
