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.

Climb Colline du Château (Castle Hill) for incredible views of Nice’s Old Town and nearby turquoise seas. Go for a cool dip in the glistening waters of the Mediterranean.

Delight yourself or your favorite someone with a bouquet of vividly colored flowers from a quaint shop in Vieille Ville (Old Town). Sip some café au lait at a local café and watch the world stroll by.
