Situated in the Bay of Angels, Nice holds the title as the cultural capital of the Côte d’Azur. The nobility of the Old Town and the hustle and bustle of the Promenade make Nice a unique place to visit and one you won’t ever forget.
Cultural tour of Nice
Get your visit to Nice under way by wandering lazily down the shop-lined streets of the Old Town. Stop and smell the aromas of fresh fruits and flowers wafting toward you from the colorful market in Cours Saleya. Fancy an authentic meal? Stop for a break at Acchiardo, a restaurant offering traditional dishes like socca, a Nice specialty you won’t want to miss.
Cross the city on foot and discover its true character by visiting some of Nice’s many museums, second only to Paris in number among French cities. Consider a few options: the Chagall Museum, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, or the Matisse Museum, which will be exhibiting some of this master’s rarer works this summer showcasing his intimate connection with the city. The International Museum of Naïve Art is also worth a stop. The museum occupies Château Sainte-Hélène, the former residence of French perfumer François Coty, and harbours gardens containing all sorts of rare plants.
Finish up your cultural tour at the Cassini and Floréal exhibition halls at Parc Phœnix, where the artwork of Alexandra Allard will be on display through the end of August. Her Incipit exhibition takes its inspiration from the flight of birds and their behavior, which harmonizes perfectly with the surrounding botanical gardens and zoo.
Radisson Blu Nice is located on the Promenade des Anglais, on Nice’s sunny seafront. Close to the train station, airport, and the city’s main attractions it would be difficult to find a hotel with more to offer!
