Located at the western end of the Promenade des Anglais, it is a few minutes by car or tram from the center of Nice. Regular and direct connections are provided to a hundred destinations on all continents.
Nice cuisine and gastronomy
We find all the Mediterranean flavors and much more in the cuisine of Nice, which has many local recipes that have become famous. the Socca, a kind of pancake with chickpea flour, the pissaladière with onions and small olives from Nice, the chard pie, the Nice stuffing, the zucchini flower fritters, the Nice salad and the daube ravioli are some some examples.
The pleasure of eating well is everywhere in Nice and whether it’s local bistros or restaurants with starred chefs, there is something for everyone, whatever their budget.
Over the years, we have selected a few restaurants and shops that we particularly recommend.
Do not miss to visit the Château de Bellet , the vineyard of the hills of Nice which extends over fifty hectares and which offers voluptuous red wines, elegant rosés and whites with flinty accents.
