Nice is famous for belle époque architecture, beachfront promenades and landmark hotels. This beautiful, lively city offers so much more than a beach holiday. Nice is the perfect holiday to France and a great place to stay if you want to explore the coast.
Food and drink
New' Nice serves typical tourist meals with good value 'plat du jour' from €15 per person. Visit the Old Town close to the port to find tranquil restaurants serving perfectly cooked fish with home-grown olives and stuffed vegetables. The Provence region is home to famous, beautiful wines that are full bodied, fruity and complement any meal.
The Old Town is full of olive oil vendors but make sure you find Alziari. You can buy this in New York but you can purchase here for a third of the price, an amazing french holiday. Find time to hit the Côte d'Azur's largest department store and shopping streets. They are located in the heart of the pedestrian centre so you cannot miss it.
