 Nice, Capital of the French Riviera

5th largest town all over France with half a million inhabitants, suburbs included, Nice has a 25 centuries old history, a rich and varied both civil and religious architecture (from the Antiquity to the Turn of the Century) and great museums (Chagall, Matisse, Chéret… to name but a few). Nice is a crossroad between East, West, Africa and Northern Europe, a location at the origin of an extraordinary cultural blending.

A good tour of Nice starts generally with a panoramic stop at Mt Boron Hill (one of residential sections of Nice), which will give a good idea of the size of the town and of its beautiful location by the Bay of Angels ; it would also include a walking tour in the Old town, famous with its flower market and some of the finest Baroque churches in the region.

If time is left, a visit of the Russian Church, that was built in 1865 by order of Tsar Nicolas 1st and a walk through the olive grove gardens at Cimiez Hill (it shelters also the ruins of the Roman town of Nicea) can eventually be included in the tour.

Although a half-day tour is long enough to have a good sightseeing of the town, Nice is such a rich place in itself, that it will provide matter for a very interesting full-day tour, including or not museums.

As a full-day tour, Nice can be combined as well with almost all the other interesting spots within a distance of about 30 km around  the town ; wether going east (Villefranche, Eze, Monaco…) or  west (Cannes, Vallauris, Antibes, Biot, St Paul…), that's plenty of interesting places to visit (see descriptions in the corresponding pages).
