By using some 300 photos and 20,000 words NICE’S BEST is a travel guide that helps you make the most of your city break. In it you’ll find detailed and practical information on key SIGHTS, ACTIVITIES and INTERESTS and be pointed in the right direction by several key ITINERARIES. Then there are suggestions of where you might EAT, DRINK and look for ENTERTAINMENT; and since it is fully-independent the recommendations are not ads!

INTRODUCING NICE

Located in the extreme south east corner of France between the Mediterranean and the Alps, fabulous Nice, occupies a prime position on the graceful iridescent curve of the Baie des Anges, or Bay of Angels. It’s at the heart of the French Riviera, known locally as the Côte d’Azur: a stretch of coast famed as a ritzy seaside playground for the rich and famous.

Nice’s key features are its Italianate charm, thanks to a long association with its neighbour; its Baroque buildings and a near perfect climate. Meanwhile, inland L'Arrière Pays Niçois, literally "Nice Beyond" stretches into a region of craggy mountains and wooded valleys that's largely protected by the Parc National du Mercantour.
