Nice

Nice ©
Well-known for the beautiful views of its famous Promenade des Anglais waterfront, Nice is an ethnically-diverse coastal port city on the French Riviera and the fifth most populated city in France.
Let the collections at Musée Marc Chagall and Musee d'Art Moderne Et d'Art Contemporain capture your imagination. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Vieille Ville and Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild. Venture out of the city with trips to Promenade Le Corbusier (in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin), La Croisette (in Cannes) and Forteresse Medievale De Gourdon (in Gourdon). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Sainte-Reparate, steep yourself in history at Monastère de Cimiez, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Promenade du Soleil.
