The Greeks from Marseille discovered the location of Nice back in 350 B.C. and they named it Nice, after Nike, the Greek goddess of triumph. Traces of habitation though date back to the Pre-historic times.
Nice is situated in southeast France and, with a population of 340,000, it forms a part of the famous French Riviera.
Nice is the ultimate travel destination in Europe, attracting an estimated number of 4 million visitors annually; second only to Paris!
Nice’s beauty never went unnoticed. From as early as the 18th century, the English aristocracy used to spend their winters there and take advantage of the city’s warm Mediterranean climate.
The following years, Nice became a place of holidays, relaxation and inspiration, forever bounding its name to Matisse, Chagall, Rossini and Nietzsche, all of whom sought their lost inspiration in Nice.
Modern Nice is more popular than ever and is the top luxurious summer resort for the Europeans. Find the luxury you always secretly wanted; visit Nice!
Nice’s airport (Nice Côte d'Azur Airport) is located 7 kilometres west of Nice and can be reached by the bus network.

In Nice you will have the chance to explore more than 30 magnificent beaches; the Mediterranean blue all over the horizon!
Across the coastline, the English Promenade (Promenade des Anglais) dates back to the 18th century and was built to serve the English aristocrats that used to spend their days in Nice.
Take a stroll across the Promenade and stop for lunch, coffee or just people-watching!
When (or If, to be honest) you manage to escape the majestic beaches, take a moment or two and visit these two interesting museums:
- The Museum of Modern Art (MAMAC - Musée d'art moderne et d'art contemporain), boasting excellent collections of contemporary art with masterpieces by Picasso, Warhol and other modern artists
- The Matisse Museum, dedicated to the great French artist and presenting a thorough collection of paintings, personal items and memorabilia
Continue your walk in Nice’s streets and you’ll soon reach the baroque cathedral Notre-Dame de Nice; this is Nice’s largest church and you will immediately recognise it by the neo-gothic elements and the coloured dome.
Go for a relaxing stroll around the cours Saleya market with people selling flowers, antics, porcelains and textiles and stop at No. 1: This is the home of Matisse and the view opposite the house will probably remind you of some of his works. After all, this exact view of the blue see, the palms and the green-roofed houses is depicted in them!
Heading to the city centre, you couldn’t ignore the grand Nice Opera. If you are lucky to catch a concert, a ballet or theatre performance, don’t miss the chance to attend it!
