Discover the niceties of Nice city!

Nice is the jewel in the crown of the Cote d’Azur or as it is more commonly known, the French Riviera. Here you will find a city that has grown to become one of the best destinations for a city break or an extended stay. The clean, crisp pavements that back the soft sanded beaches are decorated with exotic trees and elegantly lit at night.

The bars and restaurants exude luxury and the yachts glisten in the medieval port. Plus you can always enjoy a temperate climate, making city breaks to Nice with Jet2holidays popular all year round. So it comes as no surprise that the area attracts a who’s who of the rich and famous, keen to top up their tan, sip exotic cocktails or relax in the warm azure waters. However, there is so much more to Nice than just this beautiful exterior.

  • Overview

 

Explore the side streets and discover history in Nice

The Promenade Des Anglais is the popular area where you will find couples strolling hand-in-hand, people chattering over coffee in the cafes and where you will find a palette of pastel coloured houses.

 

However, venturing down the side streets could take you to the old town, filled with colour from the daily fruit and flowers market. This, married with the dramatic ancient architecture – best appreciated at the Sainte Reparte Cathedral, gives you a real sense of the local lifestyle. Oh, and don’t forget to sample the ice-cream whilst ambling around this part of the city.

 

Soak up the sunshine

The long bay of soft sand is the best place to relax during your city break in Nice. Hire a parasol, grab your book and kick back in uninterrupted relaxation. Because the Promenade Des Anglais backs the beach, you are never far from refreshment either.

 

When you're tired of the beach, you can swap the sand for a seat in one of the many restaurants and tuck into some of the local cuisine – often inspired by seafood.

 

Take a trip to the movies!

With glorious sunshine beating down on the city, the last thing you’ll want to do on a city break in Nice is watch a film. However, that could all change with a visit to Cannes, especially when the iconic festival is in full-flow.

 

The close proximity of Cannes, and Monaco for that matter, means that you can enjoy plenty of days out from your base in Nice. The annual Cannes Film Festival brings together some of the film industry’s most famous faces and if you're there at the right time, you'll no doubt spot some of them.

 

On the other hand, you could go in the opposite direction and head east to Monte Carlo – just make sure you have plenty of the holiday budget left.

 

Nice is the ultimate laid-back luxury destination, where topping up your tan is as popular as the designer labels on offer and delicious cuisine served up.

 

A city of culture

If you’d prefer to partake in more cultural pursuits while you’re enjoying your time in Nice, you’ll find an ample array of art galleries nearby. That includes the Marc Chagall galleries, an artist intimately associated with Nice, as well as an excellent Museum of Modern Art.

 

There are more than 100 steps to the top of Castle Hill, but you’ll find it’s well worth the effort! There are some seriously astounding views from the top of the summit, as you can see the canary yellow town of Nice, the azure Mediterranean and the polar white Alps in the distance. The mosaic paving and cascading waterfall make a perfectly pretty setting too.

 

A little further inland, Nice’s Old Town is a world away from the glamorous jet-set by the beach and at nearby Monaco. With pastel-coloured townhouses and fragrant fruit and flower markets, the town has managed to retain its traditional character, and it’s all the more atmospheric for it!
