Nice has an azure sea, a kind climate, unbeatable wine and food, exciting nightlife, art, views and ice cream the flavour of flowers. Whether you want history, fashion, fun, beaches, day trips or culture, Nice is more than nice.
Nice bursts at the seams with cultural riches. Begin at the striking Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain, home to Warhol, Christo and many French artists. The Musée des Beaux-Arts boasts names like Rodin, Dufy and Sisley. Other must-sees include Marc Chagall Museum and the Musée Matisse in the Cimiez district. Nearby lie ancient Roman ruins at the Musée et Site Archéologigues. Matisse's magnificent Rosaire Chapel is located near Nice in Vence, and the Musée Picasso, in Antibes, is in a wonderful small castle overlooking the sea.
Take in the French Riviera by driving the stunning coastal road known as the Corniche. Visit the tiny principality of Monaco and the casinos and yachts of Monte Carlo.
