Overview

Sitting peacefully amidst azure Mediterranean seas, Nice has welcomed vacationers and renowned artists for centuries, such as beloved Henri Matisse, who spent his entire life in the city, and French-Russian modernist Marc Chagall. Museums, such as Musée Matisse and Musée Chagall, have been built here in their honor. Vacationers searching for something a bit more modern will enjoy the Musée d’art Moderne et d’art Contemporain (MAMAC).

Or simply admire Nice’s inspirational views.  A ride or stroll along the Promenade des Anglais features grand views of the sparkling Mediterranean. Those more musically inclined should visit the baroque-style Palais Lascaris in Old Nice, built during the early 17th century. A collection of 500 or so rare musical instruments line its halls, adorned with colorful frescoes.

The regional capital of the exquisite French Riviera, Nice displays its charms in a more low-key fashion than neighboring Saint-Tropez or star-studded Cannes. Together, they create the perfect French Riviera holiday.
