Things to do in Nice
Nice is filled with many different fun things to do. Get a taste of local culture at one of the museums in the area like the Musée Matisse or Palais Lascaris.

For shopping, you can visit some of your favorite brands at the Centre Commercial Nicétoile, or shop local at a small boutique like Un Jour en Provence. At night, you can hit the dancefloor Le High Club or catch a movie with the family at the Cinémathèque. Art fans will want to check out galleries like the Galerie de la Marine or the Galerie Depardieu, and adventure seekers will want to try their hand at canoeing or whitewater rafting with the Base Sport Nature center.

Nice Day Trips
While Nice is filled with fun, there are plenty of cities surrounding the area that are great for an adventure-filled day trip. A short train ride away lays Cannes, a beautiful city that is home to the yearly Cannes Film Festival and the beautiful La Croisette beach. Outside of France is the wonderful country of Monaco, where you can visit the Prince’s Palace or explore the French Riviera. For a relaxing beach day, travel a bit of a longer distance out to Marseille—a port city that is a major center for trade. Antibes is another coastal town known for its central Provencal Market. For a fun hiking adventure, travel to Toulon and go hiking up Mont Faron. For a more quiet and serene day trip, head out to Eze and enjoy the scenic view from the Moyenne Corniche.
