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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Promenade du Paillon and Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Change things up with a short trip to La Petite Cave de Saint Paul in St-Paul-de-Vence (about 30 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Vieille Ville, hike along Saint Jean-Cap-Ferrat Hike, make a trip to Promenade des Anglais, and take some stellar pictures from Colline du Chateau overlook.
