Nice… the city of carnival, the beach and the sun. In an ideal location between the sea and mountains, visitors enjoy its famous pebble beaches and can discover the hinterland with ski pistes and the Park du Mercantour (Mercantour Park). The city also has interesting architecture and provides a wide range of activities. Nicknamed Nissa la bella, this town has always attracted many artists and tourists beyond number. Its main feature is undoubtedly the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which borders the Baie des Anges with its 5 kms of beaches. Apart from the English, tourists from various parts of the world flock here. The large majority are Russian, Italian and American... Today, as the capital of the department, Nice relies principally on tourism.
