With its cobbled streets, pebbly beaches, romantic chateaux and lively seafront promenades, Nice is one of the most popular resorts on the Riviera - an ideal place for short breaks.
- Passing through?
Head for the Promenade des Anglais, the famous walkway that lines the coast and is one of the most enduring images of the Riviera. Check out the Casino Ruhl with its Hollywood-style decor and Le Palais de la Mediterranee - Nice's Venetian-style palace. Don't forget to explore the city's Vieille Ville - the old town, with its maze of winding streets.
- Staying a while?
Go to Eze, a medieval city with a hilltop castle and stunning views. Or head to Monte Carlo and hit the casino.
- The inside track...
Explore the Cours Saleya market at the heart of Nice's old town. The bustling markets have different themes including flowers, arts and crafts and antiques. Have a coffee at one of the sunny cafe terraces and watch the world go by.
