Nice is believed to be amongst the oldest human settlements in Europe and remains one of the most popular cosmopolitan tourist resorts in Europe. A hub for arts and culture enthusiasts, those interested in visiting this beautiful region will find plenty to keep them entertained.
Opéra de Nice
Throughout history, Nice has changed hands many times leaving it as culturally rich and architecturally stimulating as any other European city. Home to some of the most beautiful squares France has to offer, the Opéra de Nice which was built in the 19th Century still provides locals and tourists with regular performances and plenty of fantastic attractions.
A remarkable building dating back to the 17th Century with an ornate frontage and beautiful bell tower, relics retained from Saint Reparata make this one place you can’t afford to omit from your itinerary. The city also offers botanical gardens, monuments, theatres, observatories and an impressive waterfall on the Colline du Chateau.
The Collection of the Museum of Modern Arty and Contemporary Art
No trip to Nice would be complete without paying a visit to The Collection of the Museum of Modern Art and Contemporary Art (Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain or ‘MAMAC’), situated by Place Garibaldi.
Just a short drive from the station, hiring a car can easily connect you with this fantastic attraction which boasts nine showrooms bursting with displays of artistic excellence.
