The city of Nice is situated on the idyllic Mediterranean coast of France, an area more popularly known as the French Riviera. Long-associated with wealth and glamour, it’s where many celebrities choose to holiday.
Crystal blue waters make Nice’s beaches its star attraction. Visitors can choose between public and private beaches, with the latter charging an entry fee but providing a few more amenities. Whichever you choose, a little (or a lot) of time soaking up the sun is not to be missed in Nice.
For travellers who need a break from working on their tan, the city has plenty of culture to enjoy, like MAMAC, Nice’s museum of contemporary art. There’s also the Musee Matisse, a museum devoted entirely to legendary painter Henri Matisse.
Lastly, the Notre-Dame de Nice is well worth seeing. An enormous gothic church in the city centre, it was built in the 19th century and looks every bit as splendid now as it did when it opened over 100 years ago.
