Destination Guide: Nice

Chic clothing, nouvelle cuisine and outstanding art
Navigate Nice's pastel-coloured streets for old-style elegance and inexpensive eateries or watch the waves ripple over the Promenade des Anglais' pebbled beaches.

Food and Drink

Sample local produce in bustling markets and contemporary restaurants. Savour the aroma of hot Socca crêpes and fresh garlic in the Cours Saleya market. The New Town is full of smart, modern eateries with nouvelle cuisine to match. Relish fruity local wines in the Old Town's cosy cellars and bistros.

Sightseeing and relaxation

Discover the Riviera's artistic heritage in world-class museums. The Musée Matisse and its plush olive grove beckon in hilly Cimiez. See the vast Chagall collection at the Musée National Marc Chagall in the New Town or admire today's trailblazers at the Contemporary Art Museum. Soak up the sunlight that inspired the artists along the 19th-century seafront promenade.

Shopping

Splash out in fashion ateliers and one-off boutiques. Meander around the Old Town's alleys for artisan shops packed with virgin olive oil and hand-made soaps. The sleek boutique of chic Nicois label Façonnable is just one of the gems that make the rue de Paradis such a draw for the city's fashionistas.

Nightlife and Entertainment

Dress up for classical concerts or go beachside bar-hopping. International symphony orchestras thrill a smart crowd under the crystal chandeliers of the Opera House. Sip a Pastis to the sound of the waves from one of the Promenade des Anglais' elegant hotel bars or dance till dawn in one of the Quai des Etats-Unis' bars and clubs - locals leave as the sun rises over the beach.
