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. Located in the Alpes-Maritimes department, "Nice la Belle" is the second biggest city of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region after Marseille. If you're a history buff, be sure to include Terra Amata on your itinerary; this Niçois archaeological site displays evidence of early human's very early use of fire--proving the long-standing historical context of the city. If you enjoy sightseeing and don't want to miss anything by driving a car, Velo Bleu provides affordable bicycle rentals where you can pick up bikes from any station and return them to any other station. Vieux Nice, or old town, is a maze of streets and alleyways with many picturesque houses, boutiques, and a daily flower and fruit market called Cours Saleya. Our France trip planning website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
