About Nice Attractions
The only major city on the French Riviera, Nice has a fantastic gritty meets cosmopolitan vibe. There is the enchanting Old Town (Vieux Nice) to wander, where the cobbled streets are filled with boutiques, bars and sidewalk cafes. And more than half a dozen museums, including Musee Matisse and Musee National Marc Chagall, to explore. And then their is the beach, which instead of sand is comprised of black pebbles, and comes with a summer scene that's as chic and stylish as they come. Take a stroll down the legendary Promenade des Anglais running parallel to the sea and get your exercise in like the locals do before taking a swim in the beautiful turquoise mets cerulean hued sea in summer.
Once you've finished exploring Nice itself there is so much more to see within 30 minutes of the city by train. To the east there is Monte Carlo, Monaco, seat of the Grimaldi family, and home to its own sparkling beach and fabulously famous casino. To the west you have Cannes (just 10 minutes by train) and finally beautiful Antibes, a favorite of Jazz Age writers and modern day travelers.
