About Nice Tourism
Located in the scenic Baie des Anges and capital of the famous French Riviera, Nice is a popular visitor destination, offering a wealth of history and natural beauty. Must-sees include the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Sainte Reparate Cathedral, Museum of Fine Arts and the Saint-Paul-de-Vence Museum of International Art. February is always a busy time in the city, when the annual 'carnaval' celebrations see an increased demand for Nice villas and hotels. In July, both the Jazz Festival and the moonlit concerts of Les Nuits Musicales are worth looking out for.
The Cote d'Azur Airport (NCE) offers easy access to Monaco, St. Tropez, Antibes and the attractions of the Provence region, as well Nice's very own traditional French charm. Cultural delights and historic architecture in Nice are particularly plentiful along the Promenade des Anglais and around the Old Port, such as the Notre Dame du Port church. However, the family friendly sands, sun loungers and pedalos at Neptune Beach are also not to be missed.
