Nice, entry point to the French Riviera
Reserving your airline ticket to Nice opens the door to a metropolis with the maximum sunshine! The capital of the Riviera stands out with its colourful architecture and its intense cultural life.
Viewed from the front, in profile or from up high, the city shines from every angle. A journey to Nice is to befriend the incredible blue of the Mediterranean, the orange and ochre of the narrow streets but also the white summits of the Alps, which are not far away. Bordered by the Bay of Angels and the English Promenade, the city is a mythical destination – the French Riviera – the source of so many dreams. Tourists come from around the world to contemplate it and discover its impressive architectural heritage. The Arcades of Massena Square, the double row of houses on Saleya Avenue or Castle Hill, which overlooks the roofs and Piazzettas of the old town reminding us that Nice deserves a detour before rushing off to the areas behind it or just indulging in its seafront.
A travel guide of Nice will allow you to appreciate the local, authentic and traditional culture. A vibrant and overflowing atmosphere, where terraced restaurants proliferate and the gastronomy takes centre stage with delicious culinary specialities, such as troucha, pissaladière, panisses or socca.
During your stay in Nice, don't miss out on the famous Carnival, which takes place every year in February. Come with your family to enjoy this international event at its best: it offers a vibrant spectacle of musicians and dancers, immense floral floats and festival goers intent on sharing their joyous energy for 15 days in the most emblematic areas of the city.
On a final note, Nice is a place of high culture with a National Theatre and around 20 museums, dedicated notably to the paintings of Matisse and Chagall, two geniuses who one day fell madly in love with Nice and its surroundings.
