The Beautiful Mediterranean

Nice

There is no doubt whatsoever about the popularity of Nice throughout the world. But, what are the reasons for it? The mildness of the climate, which is said to be sub-tropical? The diversity of the landscapes, the richness of the flora, the beauty of the great Mediterranean Sea?

The Capital of the Côte d'Azur

It is all of these things along with being the capital city of the Côte d'Azur. Along the eight kilometres of coastline that make up Nice you will find beautiful palm-treed streets and walkways, wonderful architecture, some enticing museums and a great nightlife to keep you going till the early hours in the morning.

Nice has a universal appeal, and attracts visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The city is close to other major resorts like Cannes and Monaco, and is surrounded by some beautiful countryside. The world famous Nice Carnival is in February and the King Carnival is just before Lent. Nice reflects the rich and famous atmosphere of the Côte d'Azur and is a great city-break destination.
