What to do in Nice

Find a private beach

Treat yourself to some luxury downtime at one of Nice’s private beaches, with waiters at your service, impressive dining options, and, often, hessian-matted walkways to the water. Try the beach at Hôtel Beau Rivage for the classic luxe experience.

Discover Massena Museum

To get a sense of how Nice built its reputation as an aristocratic honeypot, check out the fascinating Musée Masséna, which reveals tales of Nice from the Napoleonic era to the end of the Belle Epoque and the onset of the First World War. The building itself is a relic from this era; its location, right next to Hotel Le Negresco on the Promenade des Anglais, tells its own story.

People-watch at the port

Nice is a magnet for the wealthy, and nowhere is that more apparent than at the port. Mega-yachts are moored all around the harbor, and it’s fun to stroll past and pick a favorite. Many locals come here to dine, which makes this area all the more intriguing.

Visit an art museum

Nice is an outdoorsy place, but a visit to one of its art museums is a must. Above the town on Cimiez Hill is the brilliant Musée Matisse, a fascinating look at the life of this unique French artist. Then there's the Musée des Beaux-Arts, an ornate building that houses Rodin’s famous sculpture, The Kiss.

Walk the Promenade des Anglais

The rightly famous Promenade des Anglais is a five-mile curve around the Baie des Anges, lined with palm trees, pergolas, and restaurants. It’s a great place to enjoy views of the bright blue sea. Taking a stroll along the promenade is the perfect introduction to Nice and all its charms.

Explore the old town

Yes, the tightly packed streets of Vieux Nice can be a bit crowded with vendors and visitors, but there’s something really exciting and vibrant about stopping for a coffee at one of the many cafes and watching the world go by. Get up early and visit the flower market in the Cours Saleya market, a wonderful assault on the senses.

Le Chantecler (French)

Michelin-starred Chef Denis Rieubland says the food at this restaurant is “inspired by Provence, with the respect of its products and traditions.” With traditional French haute cuisine served in elegant, chandelier-laden surroundings, this is a great pick for a special occasion.

Le Bistrot du Port (French/Seafood)

Nice’s Michelin-starred restaurants are a big draw, but sometimes you want to enjoy a good meal in a more relaxed setting. Le Bistrot du Port is just the place for that. There's still a wow factor—views of multimillion-dollar yachts in the port—and Chef Jose Orsini uses the day’s catch to make simple but tasty dishes.

La Pescheria (Italian)

Italy is, of course, just a short distance along the Cote d’Azur, so Giuseppe Mandaradoni’s Italian-infused menu in the stylish yet comfortable surroundings of the Boscolo Exedra Hotel is a good fit. But don’t come expecting just pizzas and pastas—La Pescheria is very much about fresh food cooked in Italian style, like the orange duck breast with honey, thyme, fennel, and grapes.

Flaveur (French/Asian fusion)

If you’re going to call your restaurant Flaveur, you’d better deliver on that promise. And brothers Gaël and Mickaël Tourteaux certainly do. The menu is a creative master class, adding Asian touches to French classics. No wonder the Michelin inspectors awarded them a star.

Olive et Artichaut (Mediterranean)

Located in Nice’s old town, Olive et Artichaut is a real find: it offers the Cote d’Azur gourmet experience in pleasantly laid-back, modern surroundings, with reasonable prices to boot. The menu offers a modern twist on classic Mediterranean cuisine.

Keisuke Matsushima (French/Japanese fusion)

Chef Matsushima has learned the best techniques of French cooking and combined them with his Japanese heritage, so the mille-feuille of beef comes with a wasabi dressing. Such commitment to interesting flavors earned Matsushima a Michelin star in 2006 and he’s never looked back; he also devised the menu at Hi-Hotel’s beach restaurant.
