Well-known for the beautiful views of its famous Promenade des Anglais waterfront, Nice is an ethnically-diverse coastal port city on the French Riviera and the fifth most populated city in France.
Explore Nice's surroundings by going to La Croisette (in Cannes) and Easy Dive (in Juan-les-Pins). Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Marineland. And it doesn't end there: get great views at Colline du Chateau overlook, visit Vieille Ville, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and get outside with Nikaia Glisse.
