  In the midst of renewal

Nice is an authentic, bustling city … Creative, dynamic, cosmopolitan and young, it’s bursting with development projects worthy of the great capital cities. With the inauguration of the Allianz Riviera, a large stadium in the “Eco-Vallée” district, a real feat in terms of architectural achievement, particularly in ecological terms, and the imminent delivery of the Promenade du Paillon, a new 12-hectare urban park with strips of lawn and giant water mirrors offering cooling mist sprays, stone paving and convivial outdoor lounges, Nice is clearly in the midst of renewal!

Original, authentic or avant-garde, marks of its culture can be found in its streets and squares. Autumn is a particularly good time for discovering these masterpieces. Facades of monuments, churches, museums and galleries, parks and gardens, the Old Town, authentic markets … Nice offers you countless opportunities for visits! (+)
