The glamorous city of Nice has the cosmopolitan vibe of French Riviera that beckons the beachgoers to bask on the shores. However, there’s lot more to explore than the pebbly waterfronts, the palm trees swaying in the breeze, and the pastel-colored buildings. With the remarkable mix of old-world opulence, real-city grit, exceptional location, and year-round sunshine, Nice has a universal appeal.
Promenade des Anglais, running along the pebbly beaches, provides you with the luxurious and comfortable hotels that include hessian carpets for protecting the swimmer’s bare feet, watersports, dining, and waiter service at the edge of the water. Although most of the Colline du Chateau has crumbled away, the hilltop offers a sweeping view of the Baie des Anges along with the entire city. The place is suitable for children as there are plenty of spaces for picnics.
You can visit Musee d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain and appreciate the contemporary side of fine art. The permanent collection of this art museum features a showing from Pop Art, New Realism, and the Nice School. You should also make Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall a part of the itinerary because it has an impressive collection of biblical paintings. Both the Musee Matisse and the Chagall Museum are located in Cimiez.
If you are in the shopping mood and want to have an aromatic and colorful experience, then visit Cours Saleya, situated in Vieille Ville or Old Nice. You may choose to walk along Avenue Jean Medecin at Place Massena. This place has lots of international chains, French boutiques, cafes, and shopping malls.

Therefore, with the best eating options, thriving art scene, and buzzing nightlife, Nice is the perfect place for romance-seeking couples as well as globetrotters to spend a week or two.
