Nice, France

The refinement of the Côte d'Azur has been passed down by a generation of nobles to visitors of exclusive sites such as Montecarlo, Saint-Tropez, Antibes and Juan-les-Pins.
Nice is just as significant, presenting the immortal panorama of the Promenade des Anglais, the pedestrian by the sea, extending from the airport to the port, 5 km long, accompanied by the palm trees of the famous French Riviera.
Nice is the primary port of entry to the Côte d'Azur, thanks to France's second airport.
Four out of ten visitors who come here are attracted to Nice for a number of reasons: the quality of the infrastructure and hospitality, 7 km of beaches, always accessible thanks to an ideal climate with more than 3,000 hours of sun per year, hundreds of restaurants representing French cuisine, the first port in France for cruise ships, a hotel industry that is second only to Paris and, finally, a series of events, traditional festivals and top rate level exhibitions.
In addition to the Nice Carnival, a must-see event, the numerous traditional festivals are not to be missed, such as la fête des Mais, la fête des Cougourdons, la fête de la vigne and the Niçoise gastronomy festival, in the squares and streets of the old town, surrounded and protected by buildings decorated in trompe-l’oeil.
Tradition is jealously preserved by the Niçoise, who keep their market culture alive, with markets selling flowers, fruits and legumes, as well as fish at Place Saint-Françoise.
The warm colors of Nice's nature have always inspired great fascination in artists, writers, sculptors and musicians. The heritage left behind by great artists such as Matisse, Marc Chagall, Yves Klein and Arman is present in the city's various museums, among which are the Matisse Museum, the Chagall Museum and the MAMAC.
