Highlights

  • Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain Discovering the 'new realism' of homegrown Nice artists such as Yves Klein, Niki de St-Phalle, Cesar and Arman.
  • Trans Côte d'Azur Exploring France's most legendary stretch of coastline on a cruise to Villefranche-sur-Mer, Monaco or Cannes.
  • Port Lympia Even if you don't have a ferry to catch, Nice's port is well worth a visit; it's especially photogenic in late afternoon, when sunlight plays on the red-ochre buildings surrounding the harbour.
  • Café Paulette Part cafe, part wine bar and part tapas joint, this new kid on the block is yet another great reason to plan a night out on rue Bonaparte.
  • Galerie Lympia Catching cutting-edge art exhibits in the port's recently converted prison.
