Nice, capital of the French Riviera, is nestled between Cannes and Antibes to the West, and Monaco and Italy to the East. The city has flourished over the last few centuries, from the Greeks to Europe’s elite, to become one of the most popular tourist destinations in France. It balances old-world decadence with modern urban energy. Having the busiest airport in France, second only to Paris, with one of the most impressive plane landings in the world, and boasting three hundred days of sunshine a year, Nice continues to offer a wonderful quality of life all year round. In fact, such has been the attraction of many artists past and present, whose works can be browsed in its museums.

Living on the French Riviera increasingly appeals to all nationalities from all over the world. Some of the most notable places in Nice are the Promenade des Anglais, the most famous walkway along the Mediterranean Sea where people jog, cycle or casually meander; the Negresco Hotel, Nice’s most famous hotel; the Excelsior Regina Palace, initially a royal residence with its private garden built to match Queen Victoria’s reputation, now a luxury apartment building; the Cours Saleya in the Old Town with its vibrant flower markets and restaurants; the Place Masséna, a buzzing, open space between the Old Town and the City Centre; the avenue Jean Médecin, one of Nice’s busiest streets full of shops and life; the Place Garibaldi, a grand square full of cafés with outdoor seating; the “Coulée Verte”, a beautiful park in the heart of Nice; and so many more.
