Nice is on the Mediterranean coast, between Cannes and Monaco


The capital of the Côte d’Azur, Nice is the perfect embodiment of the gentle way of life: the blue of the Mediterranean, the wonderful light that can only be found here, breakfast on a sunny terrace, a quiet stroll through the narrow streets of the old town and much more!

The coastal area, natural beauty

The unspoilt coastline is turned towards the Mediterranean and its pleasures: creeks, beaches and sea beds rhyme with sailing, water-skiing or scuba diving.
The towns along the coast are bustling with activity both day and night: gastronomy, shopping, culture, events, everything is there!

Map Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis Mid Country

The mid country, calm and serenity

Not far from the shores of the Mediterranean, this territory offers a haven of calm, coolness and serenity.
The villages, nestled in green spaces or clinging to the cliffs like eagle’s nests, offer visitors the chance to stroll through their charming streets.

Discover the mid country

The high land, magnificent landscapes

The fortress of the metropolitan area, with its mountainous massif culminating at 3,143 metres, has been sculpted by nature over the centuries into grandiose landscapes.
Villages, built on the rock or harmoniously spread out in the valleys, offer the authenticity of a jealously guarded heritage.
