Nice – city of azure skies and vibrant life

Meet Nice, the radiant gem of France’s Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region! Where the refined glamour of the French Riviera casually merges with a vibrant, laid-back atmosphere. Picture this: a leisurely amble along the iconic Promenade des Anglais, palm trees rustling above, the azure Mediterranean sea by your side. Then, a delightful plunge into the labyrinthine streets of Vieux Nice, the old town, vibrant markets like the Cours Saleya teasing your senses with fresh local fare. In Nice, art is in the air – it was Matisse’s haven, and his influence resonates in the city’s rich museum culture. Now, prepare for the true Niçois experience: every local has a unique spin on the famed Salade Niçoise, and discussing the ’correct’ ingredients could well turn into an impassioned debate.
