Nice is the Côte d’Azur’s most cosmopolitan city and is a magnet for the sophisticated jet-set crowd seeking sunshine and an azure ocean. Here, adults sip cocktails on loungers while their children splash around in beautiful warm water. There’s plenty for art lovers here too, with a number of museums. The pretty lanes of the old town are dotted with colorful flowers, market produce and charming antiques. At night, Michelin-starred restaurants, lively bars and hot spots make this one of the most exciting places to visit in the south of France.
