Sightseeing in Nice offers as much variety and wonder as anywhere in southern Europe. Clearly, the baie des anges and its beaches seem to define the city as a Mediterranean resort but Nice is so much more!
With a history that stretches back several hundred thousand years and includes everything from prehistoric hunter-gatherers to the most prestigious artists of the last few centuries, Nice's cultural treasures are every bit as worthy as its hedonistic delights.Events like the Nice Jazz Festival in July or the Carnival in February epitomize Nice's festive, musical soul.In fine weather, stroll along the Promenade des Anglais, take a swim in the sparkling blue water and dry off on the galets. The Mediterranean at its finest! But don't forget to check out one of Nice's fine museums, explore the flower market on the Cours Saleya, enjoy the rocky coastal path along the Cap de Nice. From the Colline du Chateau, you get an unrivalled view of the entire bay and at Nice Port you are reminded of the days when Nice was a fishing village. And at night, feast in one of Nice's fine restaurants followed by some sizzling nightlife.
