Nice resides on the southern French coast between Monaco and Cannes, and forms part of the stunning French Riviera. Whether you want to stick to the city or explore the surrounding coastline, take a look at our holidays to Nice.
If you like going to the casino then head to the delightfully named Casino du Palais de la méditerranée de Nice. It has a lovely waterfront setting and you can while away the hours playing the tables or sipping cocktails in one of the bars.
The casino is unmissable from the Promenade des Anglais, which is a great feature of Nice that sweeps all along the pretty bay. The locals call it La Prom and it’s ideal for a leisurely wander among the palm trees. Stop for a drink or bite to eat at one of the bars or restaurants along the way, and keep an eye out for skateboarders and roller skaters as they pass by.
Go for a stroll around the Old Port area too, which has an array of shiny modern yachts moored alongside a large number of traditional fishing boats. It’s a great spot for having an al fresco meal with a view, especially as the sun goes down.
If you’re looking to introduce some culture into your trip then try the Musee d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (Museum of modern and contemporary art), the Basilique-Cathédrale Sainte-Marie et Sainte-Réparate de Nice (Nice Cathedral) or the Musée Matisse, which is a museum dedicated solely to French artist Henri Matisse.
Explore the coastline around the city or stay nice and central with holidays in Nice.
