Reasons to Visit
Guided Sightseeing tour of Nice
Experience the sights and sounds of the capital of the French Riviera. A great way to get to know the city at a glance with a professional, experienced, English-speaking guide to give you an insight into the history and culture of the city as well as answer any questions you may have.
Parc du Chateau
This park, on a rocky outcrop above the old town, rewards with a cinematic panorama of Nice, the Baie des Anges and the port. Only the 16th-century Tour Bellanda remains of the 12th-century castle, razed by Louis XIV in 1706. The Cascade Donjon , an 18th-century artificial waterfall with viewing platform is a popular picnic spot. Hike up the steps from the seafront or ride the art deco lift to the top.
The Matisse Museum is situated on the hill of Cimiez, not far from the Franciscan monastery with its Italianate gardens, the Hotel Regina where Matisse lived, and the Gallo-Roman ruins. Since the 5th of January 1963 the Museum has been welcoming visitors to its collection of works left by the artist (and his heirs) to the city of Nice where he lived from 1918 until 1954.
The Domaine des Collettes and it's park adorned with olive-trees so beloved by the artist, was the last home of Auguste Renoir. Preserved with the original furniture and decoration, the house also features the painter's two studios, 11 original paintings, virtually all his sculpture, as well as many old photographs and personal possessions.
Day trip to Antibes
The historic old town within the ramparts has retained much of its original character with quaint cobbled streets, a Provencal market, lots of restaurants and street cafes. The Chateau, bastion and towers have today been transformed into a magnificent Modern Art Museum, History and Archeology Museum and museum of traditional crafts and local culture.
Day trip to St Tropez
St Tropez on the Cote D'Azur was once home to painters and artists who valued the fact that it was the most inaccessible village on the coast. The town attracted the international "jet set" in the 1960s, and remains known for its beaches and nightlife. The cobblestoned La Ponche quarter recalls its past as a fishing village, although yachts now outnumber fishing boats in the Vieux Port.
Marc Chagall Museum
Contained within the strict geometry of this bunker-like building is the complete set of biblical paintings by long-time Riviera resident Marc Chagall. Arresting, colourful and otherworldly, these imposing paintings are complemented by the various preparatory sketches made by the artist at the inception of this series, which was designed to transmit, in his own words, 'a certain peace, a certain sense of religion and a sense of life's meaning'.
Nice Flower Market
Every day, except on Monday, there is a colourful food and flower market at Cours Saleya, the famous promenade in the South-West part of Vieux Nice. Considered one of France's special markets, it is a great place to immerse yourself in the sights and smells of this essential part of French life which attracts both tourists and locals alike.
Walking Tour of Nice Old Town
Nice’s old town, an atmospheric mellow-hued rabbit warren, has scarcely changed since the 1700s, and getting lost in it is a highlight. The thriving market square hosts a well-known flower market and a food market, a staple of local life. A flea market takes over on Monday, and the overflow from bars and restaurants seems to be a permanent fixture.
Greek Villa Kerylos
Between Nice and Monaco, the Grecian Villa Kerylos is one of the most extraordinary sites on the French Riviera. It was built in the early 1900s, in the period the French call the “Belle Epoque”, and is a quite unique and extremely luxurious re-creation of an ancient Grecian dwelling, complete with wall decorations and furniture.
Villa and Gardens Ephrussi de Rothschild
Built on the narrowest part of the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat promontory, this sumptuous palazzo, is one of the finest listed buildings on the French Riviera. Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild turned her villa into a true collector’s paradise, where porcelains, paintings by the masters and furniture sat side by side.
