Nice is an amply spaced town with deceptively steep hillside streets and so it is recommended that a car makes sightseeing a lot less of a physical effort. For those who enjoy two wheels over four, Nice is full of energetic sightseeing cyclists. You will encounter the odd cobblestoned road and the hills around town can prove a challenge to the most active and muscular of sporting cyclists but a carefully routed cycle path will bring enjoyable results.
Popular attractions around Nice that are recommended include the Maritime museum. Expect a steep and lengthy climb up some steps and a view at the top to blow you away! As sailing is a significant feature of Nice, this naval museum is a must for getting to the bottom of the city's origins.
Old Nice is home to the seventeenth century Palais Lascaris. Typically generously coloured in traditional warm and soft colours, you can't miss it despite its somewhat discreet situation.
The most stunning of areas and districts in Nice are found in the old town or Vieux Nice. Tiny streets, old pastel coloured houses and lots of shops, markets and cafes greet you at many a turn not to mention the all too delicious aromas of Nice's Mediterranean cuisine. A great way to watch Nice in action is to find a local market, the fish market in the Place Saint-Francois is a good choice!
Other popular attractions include the Marc Chagall Museum and the Matisse Museum for art lovers. Although Chagall was Russian, he made Nice his home and died here as did Matisse. The Matisse Museum is well situated for a number of popular Nice haunts such as the old ampitheatre and the famous Cimiez Monastery.
Art Deco lovers will enjoy a stroll along the Promenade des Anglaise only to discover some impressive architecture from the turn of the last century. The Palais de la Mediterranee continues to be the backdrop of important local events adding an air of the spectacular and decadent, with its art deco facade, to any occasion.
Festivals around town are varied and plentiful. Nice is conveniently placed also for the Formula 1 race meeting at Monaco as well as playing host to one of the most important music festivals in the world, the Nice Jazz Festival (attracting in excess of four thousand revellers each year). One of the best festivals to head for is the Festival of Lemons. Every February, the locals of a nearby town called Sleepy Menton celebrate its claim to fame for producing the greatest amount of lemons in the whole of France. Expect a big celebration with plenty of delicious citrus tastings!
