Nice is one of the most important cities of the French Riviera
, located on the southern coast of France
, near the border with Italy
The city has always been one of the most attractive tourist resorts in the country, once regarded as a winter resort thanks to its temperate climate, and today considered the third tourist destination in France after Paris
Nice has always attracted many visitors, partly because of its proximity to other important places of the French Riviera such as Monte Carlo
, and also Grasse
, the city of perfumes.
The city is often seen as a luxury destination, but it has many different accomodations, ranging from from family-run hotels to 5-star hotel facilities, thus enabling you to find accommodation at lower prices.
Nice is overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and boasts beautiful beaches; the city has many places of interest to tourists, such as the famous Promenade des Anglais

Another place of great interest is the Old Town
, which is the historic centre of Nice where you can linger at the flower market in Cours Saleya, admire the baroque Cathedral of Sainte Réparate
, and above all the beautiful Chapel of Mercy
, considered to be one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in the world.
Close to the Old Town is the Castle Hill
(on which you can find its ruins), where there is a public park from which you can enjoy magnificent views of Nice and its surroundings.
