The City

Fabulous Nice, capital of the The French Riviera, occupies a prime position on the graceful iridescent curve of the Baie des Anges, or Bay of Angels, which stretches from Cap d’Antibes in the west to Cap Ferrat in the east. Moreover, Nice's Italianate charm, resulting from a long association with its neighbour; its Baroque buildings; near perfect climate; and setting at the foot of the Alps all contribute to its appeal.

The Coast

Nice stretches out beside the Mediterranean Sea along a coast that English speakers often call The French Riviera but which is locally known as the Côte d’Azur. While it was the English who discovered its delights during the mid 19th century, the secret eventually emerged, and the Riviera soon established itself as an international playground.

The Mountains

Inland L'Arrière Pays Niçois, literally "Nice Beyond" is Nice's back-country: a region of craggy mountains and wooded valleys that's largely protected by the Parc National du Mercantour.
