About Nice

One of the most popular vacation destinations in Europe, Nice is located on the French Riviera, bordering the Mediterranean Sea. This cosmopolitan port city attracts millions of visitors every year, offering beautiful pebbly beaches, astonishing views, excellent food and wine, and world-class museums. Nice has a distinctive Mediterranean mystique, a warm climate, and towering palms that are more reminiscent of California than Europe.
