Basking in the sun on the Côte d'Azur, chic Nice is the place to be on the French Riviera. Settled in ancient times by the Greeks of Marseille, Nice was originally called Nikaia, after Nike, the Greek goddess of victory. 21st century Nice evokes elegance and sophistication - à la française of course!
The labyrinthine Old Town (Vieux Nice) is sure to impress as the beauty of the winding ochre back streets competes with mouthy merchants plying their trade at flowery market stalls at the Cours Saleya.
Art lovers’ appetites will surely be whet in the ever-popular museums, Musée Marc Chagall and Musée Matisse, paying homage to the artists that took inspiration from Nice’s leisurely beauty.
Second only to Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, the ornate Russian orthodox cathedral in Nice is one of the more unconventional sites to behold and is the biggest of its kind in Western Europe. Open your spirit to the vivid frescoes that line the inner walls.
La Promenade des Anglais, named after aristocratic British sun-seekers who inspired its construction, is a prime piece of real estate that lines the sandy shore. Be it an ice cream on a summer stroll or a luxurious bottle of French wine in the famed Hotel Negresco, no visit to Nice is complete without giving in to the Mediterranean charms that line the boardwalk.
Nice is also one of our many port destinations. If you plan to come to your guided tour(s) by cruise ship, we would be more than happy to arrange for your transfer and arrival!
