Nice, an authentic and booming city... is currently under- going a real economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution. To make the most of its exceptional setting, the city has set up a development strategy primarily focussed on the preservation of its natural assets, heritage and culture. A sustainable development policy now applies across the board, from transportation to new facilities.
Nice, this cosmopolitan, dynamic city, overflowing with creative energy, sets the standard for facilities to hold congresses and conventions, business meetings, product launches, incentive activities...The city's attractions lie in its geographical location and in its cultural heritage, as well as in its infrastructure and its ergonomics, such that visitors have access to a comprehensive range of facilities.
At a time when the planet demands special and attentive care, the City of Nice has conceived a highly committed policy in terms of sustainable development and environmental protection. For this purpose, a vast programme for the redevelopment of the parks and gardens is underway.
Today, Nice wants to be the "Green City of the Mediterranean" and makes every effort so that sustainable development is at the heart of its policy in all the sectors of the city.
The incredible plant diversity, introduced by the landscape gardeners of past and present provides the opportunity to discover the city from a different angle. The same applies to strategies implemented to render life in the city "cleaner" in all senses of the term.
After 200 years of touristic excellence, Nice has embarked on a new cycle, a new strategy, in which sport plays a leading role.
In order to develop its actions in favour of a targeted tourism offer of quality, the Nice Convention and Visitors Bureau has relaunched the ‘Cuisine Nissarde' label to put forward restaurants which:
- respect traditional recipes,
- are attached to the heritage and the history of Nice cuisine,
- propose a cuisine and a welcome of quality.
The aim is to save, promote and perpetuate Nice cuisine, which is world-renowned. The ‘Niçoise' cuisine reflects the notion of well-being and the respect for regional products, always accompanied by the famous olive oil.
