Nice is the capital of the French Riviera, and there are endless amounts of things to do, especially during the summer season. Taking a stroll down the Promenade you will find numerous different watersports activities to enjoy, and this private beach provides plenty. Why not give yourself a challenge and try jetskiing, parachuting, or banana boating!
For the shopaholics who fancy a day away from the beaches there is Avenue-Jean-Medecin and Nice Étoile. There are hundreds of different shops to cater for all tastes, from designer brands in Galeries Lafayettes to quirky little shops to interest alternative styles. Amongst plenty of well-known shops, there are also some great coffee spots on Avenue Jean-Medecin for you to take a break in.
The Parc du Chateau, which towers above the town, provides stunning views back to the Nice beaches and the whole of the Baie des Anges. There is an old tower at the top of the hill, as well as an attractive artificial waterfall, which appears to cascade down towards the town below. After sunset, the sight of the park illuminated against the night time sky, is a visual treat.
Visitors should take a wander into Vieux Nice, the old part of the town. There are vibrant markets, including the famous Cours Saleya flower market, as well as old churches such as the stunning 18th century Chapelle de la Miséricorde. Meandering through the narrow winding streets, with their quirky bistros and boutiques, is a great way to lose oneself for an afternoon, before stepping into one of the outdoor cafés for a drink. In the evenings, the Old Town becomes the hub of Nice’s animated nightlife, with live music emanating from the concentration of bars around the Cours Saleya. The young English-speaking crowd head to Wayne’s Bar, which is reknowned for its live bands and great music as well as its lively atmosphere.
The coastal walk around the Cap de Nice offers beautiful scenery and access to some attractive secluded coves. It is possible to walk all the way around the Cap to Villefranche sur Mer. Another way to keep fit in Nice is to join the many roller-bladers that take to the Promenade des Anglais to show off their impressive displays of tricks.
One of the other great opportunities available in Nice is to rent a boat for a day and tour the beautiful coastline.
