Stylish, elegant Nice

Sitting on the Italian end of the Cote D' Azur in southern France, Nice has all that's best of French and Italian style and cuisine too. With a lot of development around the time of the Belle Epoque at the turn of the 20th Century, Nice is a chic, elegantly built resort, with a long sandy beach and promenade with a legendary sense of flair and style.

Best time to go

Nice has a lovely northern Mediterranean climate, and is great between May and October. However, try a visit in February, as the, "Carnaval de Nice" takes place then. A 14-day Carnival, it has colourful parades and numerous events, especially along the Place Massena and the Promenade d'Anglais. For height of summer fun, try the 1st and 2nd week in July when the "Nice Jazz Festival" takes place. This is a large, highly respected and important jazz festival, which has been held since 1948. There's also the 14th July - "Fête nationale française", which is the French national holiday with parades, concerts and fireworks.
