Make Nice part of your tour of France

From the cosmopolitan culture of Paris to the beautiful scenery in the Alps, France tours have something for everyone. Some cities in particular offer a little bit of everything, and that is certainly the case with Nice. Nestled along the Mediterranean coast in the southeast corner of the country, Nice is home to some of the most appealing destinations in France, and whether you're looking to experience its legendary nightlife, tour one of its many museums or admire its picturesque landscape, there are several spots that simply cannot be missed.

Nice is perhaps most famous for its breathtaking coastal vistas, and nowhere is that more true than along the Promenade des Anglais. Often shortened simply to" La Prom," this stretch of coastline offers some of the most unfettered looks at the azure Mediterranean in the world. Depending on when you walk through this section of Nice, it can be a bustling hub of activity. There's plenty to do along the La Prom. You can have a bite to eat at one of its many cafes or relax on the pristine sand of Nice's beaches.

While La Prom is the perfect representation of Nice's natural appeal, the city is also home to many museums, with Musée Matisse standing out as one of the best. The museum, opened in 1963, is dedicated to the legendary French painter Henri Matisse and houses nearly 700 of his pieces, which include drawings, paintings and sculptures.

Before leaving Nice, you should make your way up Castle Hill. Perfect if you're looking to add a hike to your tour of France, Castle Hill offers you a bird's eye view of the city below and the chance to reflect on your travels.
