Soak up the Riviera vibe in Nice

With streets full of colorful buildings, palm-lined boulevards and a turquoise blue Mediterranean sea, you may feel like you’ve somehow stepped into a living painting when you arrive in Nice.

And in fact, the clear air and soft light of the city has inspired some of the great artists  like Chagall and Matisee — both of whom have museums dedicated to their works here.

With year-round sunshine and a stunning long beach, Nice is the unofficial capital of the Côte d’Azur, and a must-see place to visit.

Wander along fabulous markets, a charming old town, view the glorious architecture and visit one of many super nice restaurants.
From Nice you can easily explore the rest of the Rivera, Provence, Monaco and Italy.
