As the capital of Côte d’Azur, the beautiful city of Nice is the fifth largest city in France. Nice offers a sparkling seaside location, Provencal pleasures, a wealth of fine architecture, and a breezy and relaxing culture.
Nice is a popular tourist destination because of its fantastic location between the Alps and Italy’s Gulf of Genoa. Here you will experience the perfect, temperate weather of a Mediterranean destination. Just about everywhere you go in Nice, you will find interesting ruins, historical museums, stylish boutiques, and cafés.
Most of the buildings where you will find cafés in Nice are from the 17th and 18th century, which creates a uniquely timeless atmosphere. You will usually find the city-streets full of activity as pedestrians go for relaxing strolls along the Promenade des Anglais or shop at the famous outdoor markets in Venetian-style squares.
If you need some help on what to see first, don't hesitate to contact us! We've even created a handy list of things to do in Nice just for our students.
