With the Mediterranean lapping at its shores, Nice's prime position on the Cote d Azur is its biggest draw for tourists. Don't expect miles of golden sand- the beach is stony and rugged, though invariably packed with bronzed sunbathers.
Yet there's still much to recommend beyond sun and sea in France's fifth biggest city. Nice has museums and galleries aplenty, as well as decadent nightlife and the distinct Nicoise culture to gorge on.
The best way of getting to know the city is by wandering its network of alleys and lanes in the historic Old Town. There, you can shake off the hordes of less adventurous tourists and discover the clty's finer bars ond restaurants. Be sure to try socca, a dish like a crepe but made from chickpea flour, and a glass or two of the local rose. Meanwhile, Le Chateau, or Castle Hill, is a must- see for its lush vegetation, crumbling ruins, and splendid views of the below.
In the handsome city centre, spend some time in Nice's largest civic space, Place Massena, whose redevelopment presaged a drive to refashion the city. Nowadays, traffic-clogged roads have given way to parks, gardens and tram lines. The ugly bus station was demolished to make way for the new Promenade du Paillon, a 12km-long (0.75 mile)green corridor connecting the Notional Theatre to the seaside. The new Allianz Riviera stadium is a similarly stunning feat of ecological architecture, producing more energy than it consumes.
