Your holiday in Nice will present you a lot of activities that can make your experience more worthwhile. Here are some of the things to do when you get there:    

  • Visit the famous Promenade des Anglais that stretches along the coast to the old town and the quai des Etats-Unis to the east. Here, you will see the sparkling blue seas of the baie des Anges or the Bay of Angels.
  • Explore the Old Town, where the local Niçois worked and lived. You can wander through its streets to have a glimpse of one of the woeld’s most beautiful Baroque churches and the Palais Lascaris.
  • Test your shopping skills at the gorgeous Cour Saleya market that is filled with colors and scent of fresh vegetables. You will also find restaurants, bars and cafes lining the square.

The world-famous beach is just the tip of the iceberg, as Nice also boasts many museums, churches and ruins to keep you happy for days in your vacation. Among these attractions, there are those that you should prioritize on your itinerary.

  • Promenade des Anglais - This runs along the pebbly shore of the city’s beach, which tourists say that it is not only a lovely place for a stroll, but is also a good place to get used to the directions.
  • Castle Hill - Locally known as Colline du Château, this more of a hill than a castle. From the ruins, you can climb its nearly 300 feet of stairs to the top to get a sweeping panorama of the city and the Bay of Angels. It also has a playground and ample ground for picnics.
  • Chagall Museum - This is a national museum dedicated to the works of famous painter Marc Chagall, whose works were inspired by religion.
