Why you should visit Nice, France

Activities around the Hotel

Nice evokes images of wealth and glamour, yet the fifth largest city in France is also a place of enduring traditions, authentic heritage and natural beauty. Experience the many facets of Nice with our list of discoveries and excursions. Between visits to the beach and the pool, wander the city’s alleys and byways to fully immerse yourself in the region’s incomparable art de vivre.


When is the best time to visit Nice? Lovers of sunbathing and watersports will want to come in the hotter summer months. However, the city, designated “Winter Resort Town of the Riviera” upon its inclusion in UNESCO’s World Heritage List in July 2021, has much to offer for off-season travelers too thanks to its exceptionally mild and sunny climate. The period between late autumn and early spring also means better deals and fewer crowds – unless you’re here during February, when one of the world’s largest Carnivals takes place!
