Things to do around Nice

Nice is the departure point for theme tours and a multitude of fun, exciting opportunities.

Located in the heart of a region of timeless beauty, Nice, a maritime city near the international reserve for marine mammals, offers a multitude of original refreshing escapades.

Nice is in the heart of a fascinating world combining magic and picturesque, legend and authenticity. The fantasy of Cannes stands in contrast to the pristine grandeur of the Esterel Massif or the region serenity of the Isles of Lérins.

In contrast to the splendours of Monte Carlo there is the quiet luxury of Cap-Ferrat, the appeasement of Beaulieu-sur-Mer and the majesty of the Bay of Villefranche.

Move away from the coast to travel back in time along the Route of Old Villages. The narrow streets of Biot and Valbonne and the ramparts of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin or Eze-Village take you back to the heart of the Middle Ages. Haut-de-Cagnes, Old Vence, Mougins and Vallauris offer up the light and colours of Renoir, Soutine, Matisse and Picasso.

Nice is the ideal starting point for visiting this legendary territory where all outdoor activities are accessible and easily practicable: diving with dolphins, floating over the void on a 'via ferrata', bungee jumping at Pont de la Mariée, meeting wolves in the Mercantour, observing protected species, exploring the hinterland's rich heritage.

Greater Nice offers a chance for everyone to go from dreams to reality...
