This city is the capital of the Côte d’Azur and the fifth biggest city of entire France, making it a real tourist cosmopolitan. As it is a big city, it has something to offer for everyone; from miles of sandy beaches, to shopping and from excellent food and drinks to a vivid nightlife. The promenade of Nice is called the Promenade des Anglais, where you can take a nice stroll or sit down at one of the many terraces which offer a great view of the sea. Close by you can find the old part of Nice, called Vieux Nice or Vieille Ville, where you can look around in the narrow streets, in the artisanal, traditional shops or have a delicious Niçoise salad for lunch in one of the café’s. The Cours Saleya square hosts a market every day, where you can buy traditional products or ingredients to prepare a lovely meal at your villa. This square is also nice to visit in the evening, since it is very cosy and full of people sitting on the terraces. One of the main attractions of Nice is the 16th century Fort du Mont Alban, showing French military architecture, but also offers a wonderful view. The old port is also worth visiting, as it is home to many beautiful yachts and surrounded by a lot of 18th century buildings. If you’re into historic buildings, it’s also a good tip to visit the Basilique Notre Dame, Palais Lascaris and the Cathedrale Orthodoxe Russe St. Nicolas. Art can also be found in abundance with museums such as the Musée des Beaux Arts (Museum of Fine Arts), Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (Museum of Contemporary arts) and Musée Départemental des Arts Asiatiques (regional museum of Asian Arts). As Nice has its own airport, it is very easy accessible from any direction.
