Ever since the Victorian upper classes and Tsarist aristocrats fell in love with Nice in the 19th century, it has been an ever increasingly popular destination. Now, much less expensive than Cannes (the least expensive of the resort cities) it is the destination of not just the rich and famous! It's also the best excursion centre on the Riviera, especially if you're dependent on public transportation.
For example, you can go to San Remo, "the queen of the Italian Riviera," and return to Nice by nightfall. Fly from the Nice airport to Paris, Rome, Dublin or London, or you can travel by bus or train along the entire coast to resorts like Juan-les-Pins and Cannes.
Nestled in southeastern France on the Mediterranean coast, Nice is the capital - and chief resort - of the Riviera. Although it's sometimes overshadowed by its more glamorous neighbour Cannes, Nice is a charming port city blessed with a number of cultural and recreational attractions. Visitors from around the world are drawn to its pebbly beaches and narrow, cobblestone streets. Cars are forbidden in the old town, which sits up against the romantic hill, Colline du Chateau. Tourists can stroll past quaint little cafés, outdoor markets, and Latin-flavoured squares.
Further south, the Promenade des Anglais offers an enchanting walk along the sea front. Like most of the Riviera, the nightlife in Nice is lively, with trendy clubs and restaurants to suit everyone. For the culturally minded, Nice is home to one university and a number of fine museums, including Musée Matisse and Musée Chagall.
Nice is the capital of the Riviera, the largest city between Genoa and Marseille. It's also one of the most ancient, having been founded by the Greeks, who called it "Nike," or Victory.
Because of its brilliant sunshine and relaxed living, it has attracted artists and writers. Among them were Dumas, Nietzsche, Flaubert, Victor Hugo, George Sand, Stendhal, Chateaubriand, and Mistral. Henri Matisse, who made his home in Nice, said, "Though the light is intense, it's also soft and tender." The city has, on the average, 300 days of sunshine a year.
