About the sights in Nice
There are a wealth of places to visit in Nice, from top class art museums to the remains of ancient chapels and of course the famous vineyards. Many of the highlights are in Nice itself, but to see the best a car, bike or moped is recommended.
Thanks to the varied history of Nice, you will find reminders of the English aristocracy throughout the city, from expensive villas and amazing architecture to the art and glamour they brought with them. But it is not just man-made artefacts that are worth seeking out. Nice is also blessed with fabulous scenery, from the coastline of the French Riviera and the clear waters of the Mediterranean to the rolling hills inland. A number of Natural Parks have been created, which provide not only protection to the land but informative guides and trails to follow, a popular place for walking and biking.
Nice is home to a vibrant arts scene as evidenced by the number of excellent art galleries and museums found throughout. Historical art collections as well as contemporary can be seen across the region, and not forgetting of course those artists who were resident in the area such as Picasso, Signac, Matisse and Renoir.
