Towns and villages

Come and discover Nice Côte d’Azur! Starting from the coastal area, go up to the highest mountains and stop off in the towns and villages around Nice.

In Nice, enjoy the “dolce vita” in the Côte d’Azur style. There is no shortage of activities! Discover an exceptional heritage and wander from monument to monument, you will be amazed. First of all, let yourself be tempted by a shopping spree in the city’s Carré d’Or. Between two shops, sit down on the sunny terrace of a bar or restaurant to enjoy the gastronomy of Nice. In addition, organise your holiday to the rhythm of the city’s major festive, sporting and cultural events. For those who prefer a lazy holiday, sit back on your deckchair and soak in the sun with a cocktail in hand. And don’t forget that Nice has recently had the four letters of its name added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Discover the towns and villages around Nice

Criss-cross the other towns along the coast and enjoy the unrivalled proximity to the Mediterranean. Cagnes sur Mer, Vence, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Eze, towns synonymous with holidays… Historical relics, artists’ studios, architecture that crosses the ages, gastronomic experiences, your programme of visits promises to be full. On the way, take the time to marvel at the spectacular panorama that is taking shape around you. On one side the sea as far as the eye can see, on the other the snow-capped mountains.

Discover the numerous perched villages in the middle and high country of Nice Côte d’Azur. The charm of a preserved heritage is there. Height, wonder and escape are the words you will remember from these picturesque cocoons in the heart of nature. Stop off at the authentic chalets and gîtes and let yourself be swept away by the green landscape that surrounds you. Unless you come in winter and the snow has covered everything in immaculate white. Finally, whatever the season, take advantage of your presence on the spot to meet the inhabitants and craftsmen of these atypical communes. The experience will be even more pleasant.
