Things to do and places of interest in Nice

With more than 100 museums, rich architecture, an extraordinary art scene, and internationally renowned gastronomy, there is so much to explore in the city of Nice.

  • Visit the works of renowned artists at the Musée Picasso, Musée Mark Chagall and Musée Matisse. More contemporary pieces and pop art can be found in Nice’s modern art gallery, MAMAC.
  • Wander the narrow streets of Vieux Nice, lined with galleries, cafés and greengrocers’ shops as you take a leisurely stroll down the Promenade des Anglais.
  • Take in the scents, colours and lively ambience of the Cours Saleya market where you will find authentic local products from inland Nice apart from flowers, fruits and vegetables.
  • Enjoy the fragrance of a multitude of flowers at the Italian-style garden, Jardin Du Monastère de Cimiez which has old pergolas covered with climbing roses. The garden offers a scenic vista over the city, the sea and the hills.
  • Explore gorgeous views of Baie des Anges, Old Nice and the Port from Parc De La Colline Du Chateau, also called Castle Hill.
  • The Observatoire De La Cote D’Azur, the Saint-Nicolas Cathedral, Musée Bonnard in Le Cannet, La Villa Eilenroc – Juan Les Pins and the Villa Domergue in Cannes make for an interesting itinerary of the Belle Epoque of Cote D’Azur.

Tips and tricks for visiting Nice

A French Riviera Pass gives you free access to all museums and several other attractions and activities. You can opt for a 24-hour pass for €26 EUR, 48-hour pass for €38 EUR or a 72-hour pass for €56 EUR based on your itinerary and duration of stay. If you are visiting in February around Mardi Gras time, enjoy the Nice Carnival where a procession of flowered floats and floral competitions take over the city. It’s usually much cheaper to go out for a meal at lunchtime as restaurants offer good-value plats du jour or two-course menus. Also, order a carafé d’eau (tap water) instead of expensive bottled water. If you are visiting Nice on a strict budget, book a tour with ‘Greeters’ a group of volunteers offering free guided tours around themes such as architecture, food or antiques.
