Do you need inspiration as to where to go in Nice? Find here our top 10 places to visit in Nice:
1. Promenade des Anglais
It is difficult to speak about Nice without referencing the famous Promenade des Anglais. Formerly a favorite resort for English people during the winter months, it is now the most famous tourist attraction in the city. Our bus company suggests visit promenade at February then you can take a part in parades for the ebullient Nice Carnival.
2. Musée Matisse
A fascinating building in itself, the Matisse Museum houses hundreds of works by the renowned artist Henri Matisse. Located in the stunning 18th-century Villa des Arènes, this is a wonderful museum for both those already acquainted with Matisse's work and those who wish to deepen their cultural awareness of one of the most prominent artists of the 20th century. There are also a number of temporary exhibits that shed intriguing new insights on the life and work of an outstanding painter. With your own chartered bus you can easily get to this majestic art museum and discover this intriguing renowned art museum.
3. Old Town
Another must-see in Nice is its old town with its dark alleys, colorful facades and traditional Mediterranean shutters. It is difficult to think about Nice Old Town (Le Vieux Nice) without considering the Cours Saleya, where the popular market and flower market takes place almost every morning (except on Monday). The Cours Saleya will be a major open-air flea market on Monday morning! It's also the perfect place to have a beer or have a meal on one of the many terraces.
4. Enjoy some Italian ice cream
While you're in the Old Town of Nice, you should take advantage of it to enjoy real traditional Italian ice cream. Our bus company recommends "Azzurro," which is situated on Rossetti Square, not far from another ice cream shop well known to visitors but less well known, Fenocchio. The consistency of the items used is much better at Azzurro, and their cones are home-made, it has nothing to do with taste!
5. Parc de la Colline du Château
In the park at the top of this steep hill on the east side of the city, some of the best panoramic views of the French Riviera will be offered. You can look out over Nice and the Azure Sea in the Baie des Anges, and it's a sight you'll want to enjoy for as long as you can. You can pick out all the landmarks, such as Hotel Negresco and the port to the east. If you feel up to it, you'll be able to reach the top on foot from the Vieille Ville, but there's also a free elevator, which is recommended in the summer. With our bus company you can easily get there.
6. Parc Phoenix
There's a three euro charge to get into this park, but it's money well spent given how much is packed into those seven hectares on the western end of the Promenade des Anglais. Kids don’t know pay entrance fees and are sure to enjoy the stay at the park. There are 20 theme areas, with 2,500 plant species growing around ponds, in a modern greenhouse (one of the largest in Europe) and in a variety of gardens. There are also animal enclosures and terrariums, with turtles, otters and tropical spiders, while mandarin ducks, Chilean flamingos and iguanas play freely in. Our rental bus will be your support to go there.
7. Notre Dame de Nice
Built in the 19th century, this magnificent neo-Gothic structure is towering over the buildings surrounding it, it is the largest church in Nice. Unlike the Notre Dame of Paris, this basilica is made of beautiful white stone and boasting golden features on its exterior, although its interior is no less impressive. It is especially worth seeing at night when the tasteful use of lights illuminates its famous towers and stained glass windows in a stunning and artistic way. Coach Charter Europe is your travel partner here.
8. Enjoy local Food
This one city has made a lot of contributions to French cuisine, and there are a number of local dishes that you can't leave Nice without having tried those dishes. Salade Niçoise is the obvious one to start with: it's hard-boiled egg, green beans, anchovies, tomatoes and calletier olives, and goes superbly with Bandol's rosé wines or whites from Bellet. A more casual street food is Socca, a kind of cross between flatbread and pancake, made with chickpea flower and sold by vendors in the old quarter. Ratatouille also comes from this part of the world.
9. OGC Nice
From August to May, if you want a break from the intellectual and epicurean attractions of Nice and the French Riviera, you can always watch some live football at the new Allianz Riviera stadium just a few minutes west of the capital. OGC Nice has enjoyed its best season for many years in 2016 and is managed by Swiss coach Lucien Favre, known for his attractive football style. Use our bus company to get to this stadium.
10. Mont Boron
Between the port of Nice and Cap-Ferrat, there is a hill that rises steeply from the sea and reaches a height of almost 200 metres. It's a rare piece of open ground left to olive groves, carob and pine groves. You can walk to the southwest side where Nice rolls out to the distance next to the Baie des Anges, and even the Colline du Château looks low. On the other side there's a large view of Cap-Ferrat, as you walk along the ridge back to the Fort du Mont Alban. This bastion was built in the mid-16th century and is open to tourists.
