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.

Old Nice

Old Nice, or Vieux Nice, is the old quarter of Nice at the extreme eastern end of the Promenade des Anglais. It is contained between the rue des Ponchettes, Boulevard Jean Jaures and Château Hill.

The Modern Centre

This refers to the largely 19th-century area of the city that surrounds Old Nice. Bounded by the A8 Autoroute to the North, it stretches from the Airport in the west to Mont Alban and Mont Boron which enclose the City.
