It is located at the western end of the Promenade des Anglais, just a few minutes from the center of Nice by car or streetcar. Regular, direct flights are available to some 100 destinations on all continents.

Cuisine and gastronomy of Nice

All the flavors of the Mediterranean and much more can be found in the cuisine of Nice, where many local recipes have become famous. Socca, a kind of pancake made with chickpea flour, pissaladière with onions and little olives from Nice, chard pie, farcis niçois, zucchini flower fritters, salade niçoise and ravioli à la daube are just a few examples.

The pleasure of good food is everywhere in Nice, and from local bistros to Michelin-starred restaurants, there's something to suit every budget.

Over the years, we have selected a number of restaurants and shops which we particularly recommend.

Don't miss a visit to the Bellet CastleThe vineyards of the Nice hills, covering some 50 hectares, produce voluptuous reds, elegant rosés and flinty whites.

Niçoise quote:

 "Cauda la mar e ten ti a la terra 

"Flatter the sea and stay on land
