Discover the tourist routes and itineraries of Nice Côte d’Azur

Take advantage of your stay in Nice Côte d’Azur to take one of the tourist routes that cross the region. The perched villages, in the footsteps of Matisse, the Salt Route or the Great Alps or the Eurovélo, itineraries to be explored to make the most of your discoveries.

The Baroque Route

First of all, take a stroll along the routes that have marked the history of the entire destination. What do you know about Baroque art? This iconic artistic movement is present in all four corners of Nice Côte d’Azur. Take the “Route du Baroque Nisso-Ligure” and wander through the most impressive monuments. Churches, chapels, citadels, castles, monasteries… You will be amazed by their imposing façades and their meticulous architectural details.

Long distance hiking

In a completely different register, let yourself be tempted by a hike in the high mountains on a section of the GR5. This programme of more than 1200 km crosses the Vogues, Jura and Alps massifs. A spectacular journey along the entire route, which ends in beauty in front of the sea of Nice.

Immerse yourself in culture and heritage

On the road to Henri Matisse

What if you walked in the footsteps of Matisse? The artist who made his home in Nice Côte d’Azur has left his mark on the art world. For 27 years, he travelled around the area, drawing inspiration from its beauty to create his most famous works. Today, it is up to you to follow the same path and let yourself be guided on a journey through exceptional monuments, spectacular architecture, iconic hotels and lush flora. All of this is punctuated by unique and breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Perched villages

Finally, get some height and explore the perched villages of the area. Eze, Falicon, Colomars, Castagniers, Levens, Coaraze, Utelle, Bairols (pictured on the cover) and so many others with picturesque settings. Discover the charm and authenticity at an altitude of hundreds of metres and immerse yourself in settings frozen in time. A magical escapade that will not leave you indifferent…
