Nice: what to do, what to see...

Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean, this city between the sea and the mountains exudes a timeless charm. The summit of the Château’s hill offers a view over the maze of narrow streets in the old town and the Bay of Angels. A stroll along the iconic Promenade des Anglais is a must, as is a visit to Cours Saleya market or a local restaurant to sample Cuisine Nissarde specialities. All this, and the chance to go skiing on the same day!
