The Ultimate bespoke language trip to Nice.
Some visitors only come to Vence to see Matisse’s otherworldly Chapelle du Rosaire at the edge of town. It's well worth lingering a while to explore the city's charming and well-preserved medieval centre, much of which dates back to the 13th century. Stroll through the place du Frêne with its 500-year-old ash tree, or take time to appreciate the Marc Chagall mosaic in Vieux Vence's cathedral. A fruit-and-veg market fills place du Jardin several mornings a week, with antiques on Wednesday.
While the French Riviera is, for most of its visitors, the sum of all beaches and of all its shopping and nightlife opportunities, the right thing to point out is the region is, in fact, more than that. The Riviera is a place of tremendous cultural, historical and, gastronomic richness, Nice itself being virtually complete from this point of view. However, certain destinations on Cote d’Azur, such as Vence, have managed to keep a striking traditional dash, while nestling in landlocked areas, far from the glitzy buzz of reputed destinations like Cannes or Monaco.
School trips to Nice: Let Ardmore Educational Travel take the strain.
For any lover of French and Italian culture, Nice is the perfect hybrid. Long affiliated with Piedmont and Liguria to the east, Savoy to the north and Sardinia to the south, this city only joined France in 1860 and has always kept one foot in Italy. The Italian influence remains palpable everywhere, in Vieux Nice's tall-shuttered, ochre-hued buildings
Art museums abound throughout the region, but Nice's three superstars – the Musées Matisse, Chagall and d’Art Moderne – are the main attractions for art lovers.
Getting lost among the dark, narrow, winding alleyways of Nice’s old town is a highlight. The layout has barely changed since the 1700s, and it’s now packed with delis, restaurants, boutiques and bars, but the centrepiece remains cours Saleya: a massive market square that’s permanently thronging in summer. The food market is perfect for fresh produce and foodie souvenirs, while the flower market is worth visiting just for the colours and fragrances. A flea market is held on Mondays.
The most famous stretch of seafront in Nice – if not France – is this vast paved promenade, which gets its name from the English expat patrons who paid for it in 1822. It runs for the whole 4km sweep of the Baie des Anges.
