Things to Do in Nice

Want to know some of the standout things to do in Nice? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. Clamber up to Le Chateau

Though there isn’t much of the castle left, stunning views of Nice make the hike up the hill worth it. Make sure you don’t miss out on the winding streets of the surrounding area, Vieux Nice.

2. Visit the Matisse Museum

Matisse drew inspiration from Nice’s natural beauty. Take advantage of the opportunity to see some of his greatest works in the quality permanent collection.

3. Shop in the Marche aux Fleurs

Open every day, a variety of natural produce, from flowers to chickens, is sold in the Cours Saleya. You can spend hours perusing the wares at this classically beautiful Niçoise market.

4. Saunter down the Promenade des Anglais

Running along the water’s edge, the promenade has a seriously active nightlife. Pull up a chair, order a drink and watch the sun set across the bay before it really gets going.

5. Eat Nice food

Nice’s food is French with an Italian twist. Get a bottle of good, cheap wine to go with some Pissaldière (onion and anchovy pizza) or bouillabaisse (fish stew).
