A Nice Day

Spend your day discovering Nice, capital of the French Riviera

Fall under the spell of the authentic streets of Vieux-Nice and the Cours Saleya, one of the liveliest areas in Nice. From Tuesday to Sunday, one of the 10 most beautiful markets in France takes place there: local and seasonal fruit, vegetables and flowers from local production compete in shape, scent and colour.

Take the opportunity to taste the pissaladière, a pan bagnat, the socca, a speciality of Nice to be eaten hot, on the go. Then go up to the Castle Hill.
You will appreciate this veritable labyrinth of greenery for the freshness of its undergrowth and its surprising waterfall, especially as this site benefits from a remarkable view of the Baie des Anges, the old town and the port, from dawn to dusk.

Running along the Promenade des Anglais for 7 kilometres, this internationally renowned avenue is a must for all visitors, as well as for the people of Nice. The extraordinary colour of the water and its ideal temperature will invite you to take a swim, without leaving the city!

Just a few meters from Place Masséna, the heart of Nice, stroll along the Promenade du Paillon. With its 2,800m2 water mirror equipped with 128 jets, its mist tray, its play areas for children, its central lawn and its themed botanical areas, this 12-hectare green lung has literally changed the heart of the city. Reflections, sparkles, water droplets, refreshing sprays, local and exotic plants will delight you and, of course, your children!
