Nissa la Bella (Nice the Beautiful)

Well-known for the beautiful views of its famous Promenade des Anglais waterfront, Nice is an ethnically-diverse coastal port city on the French Riviera and the fifth most populated city in France. Located in the Alpes-Maritimes department, "Nice la Belle" is the second biggest city of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region after Marseille. If you're a history buff, be sure to include Terra Amata on your itinerary; this Niçois archaeological site displays evidence of early human's very early use of fire--proving the long-standing historical context of the city. If you enjoy sightseeing and don't want to miss anything by driving a car, Velo Bleu provides affordable bicycle rentals where you can pick up bikes from any station and return them to any other station. Vieux Nice, or old town, is a maze of streets and alleyways with many picturesque houses, boutiques, and a daily flower and fruit market called Cours Saleya. Take stress off the schedule by using our France tour planner.

Where to stay in Nice
