Where Is Nice, France?

The capital of the Alpes-Maritimes département, Nice sits in the scenic Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur région in southeastern France. The city is situated on the Baie des Anges, approximately 32 kilometers from the Italian border.

What Is Nice, France Known For?

A playground for the rich, famous, and beautiful for centuries, Nice has been one of the French Riviera's most opulent gems. With its blend of real-city grit, Mediterranean charm, old-world extravagance, vibrant street life, year-round sunny weather, and paradisal location, no city in France can dare overshadow Nice. With its sapphire-hued seas and Mediterranean climate, Nice still manages to exude its centuries-long appeal that once drew Europe's belle-époque aristocrats to stroll along the waterfront. Even to this day, the balmy beach days attract lovers of French and Italian culture, who want to bathe in the rich atmosphere, stunning scenery, and plenty of opportunities to either kayak, swim, skate, or simply sprawl on a beach chair with a cocktail or two.

A Quick Guide to Nice in France

  • Promenade des Anglais: There are seaside walks, and then there’s the Promenade des Anglais. More than just a pretty Mediterranean promenade, this grand waterfront walkway has been a focal point in Nice city life. Lined with palm trees and equipped with benches, this promenade is dotted with elegant beachfront bars and restaurants, as well as crowds of strollers, skateboarders, cyclers, and joggers. Bending for seven kilometers and skirted by regal 19th-century palaces, the “Walkway of the English” certainly embodies the virtues of its namesake – polished, posh, and pretty.
  • Cours Saleya: A retail hub, Cours Saleya presents all the seductive charm of commercial shopping complexes without the leveling influences of large-scale tourism. Keeping true to its pleasant European roots, Cours Saleya is famed for its colorful and diverse markets, which invite keen shoppers to surrender to the temptation of purchasing a vast array of items, ranging from works of art to bouquets of flowers.
  • Nice Old Town: The historic heart of Nice, the Old Town is all cobblestoned streets, terracotta-tiled houses, and elegantly opulent buildings. Drenched in old-world charm and sophisticated exclusivity, the Old Town is widely known for its quaint restaurants and lively nightspots. The beating heart of both olden-day and modern-day Nice, the Old Town is where you’re as likely to find the older generation having a chat over a cup of café-du-lait as you are to find young people drinking in the trendy new bars.

Popular Destinations Near Nice

  • Monaco: The second smallest country in the world, the principality of Monaco is the embodiment of a particular brand of mystique. Synonymous with affluence, exclusivity, and sophistication, Monaco is where the rich and famous congregate for their summer breaks, while Formula One drivers race around the streets in a whizz of Ferrari red. Resplendent in its majesty — being the home of the Monegasque royal family — Monaco is as enchanting as it was in its early years. A magnet for high-rollers and hedonists since the early 20th century, what Monaco lacks in size more than makes up in attitude.
  • Cannes: An attractive waterfront, elegant palm-fringed boulevards, and graceful Belle Epoque architecture give Cannes its special allure. Every summer, camera bulbs flash, and photographers scream encouragements as movie stars pose in tuxes and gowns on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. Exemplifying the glamour of the French Riviera, Cannes is where the beau monde comes to indulge in the good life. But the glitz doesn't end there. Throughout the year, as you walk among the designer bars, couture shops, and palaces of La Croisette, the wealth and glamour of this city cannot fail to impress. Well-heeled visitors frequent the exclusive private beaches, take sailing expeditions from the yacht club, shop at designer boutiques, dine at upscale restaurants, and pamper themselves at luxury hotels. Whether Cannes' soul has managed to survive its celebrity-playground status is another question, but there's still enough natural beauty to make a trip worthwhile.

Best Neighborhoods in Nice, France

  • New Town: The New Town, as you would expect, is aplomb with grand tree-lined boulevards housing upscale shops, state-of-the-art chocolatiers, and fine restaurants that are synonymous with Nice. Built for a rich aristocrat and bequeathed to the city on his death, the New Town remains true to its origins as an objectification of hedonistic affluence. For any die-hard shopaholics, this neighborhood is heaven on earth.
