Galleries and cultural activities

Nice is an exceptional city, featuring a rich cultural and artistic heritage.

The pace of cultural life is regulated by the exhibitions in the museums and galleries, the programme of events in the theatres and at the Nice Opera House.

Nice's way of life is also a cultural environment: concerts, a film library, debates and conferences.
