Soak up the sun on the French Riviera with walks beside the Bay of Angels on city breaks to Nice.
Palm trees, flowerbeds and elegant seafront esplanades line Nice's four-mile curve of beach. In the Old Town, jumbled terracotta roofs hide seafood bistros and Aladdin's cave antique shops. Billionaires' yachts jiggle at their moorings in the port, beneath the cliff-top ruins and gardens of Le Chateau.
Best of Nice city breaks for...
- Families: Hire loungers and enjoy the sun on Nice's beautiful, long pebbly beaches. Kids will love pottering about, collecting different shaped pebbles and paddling in the azure water.
- Romance: Take a romantic stroll around the Matisse Museum to see the famous artist's flowing lines of dancing nymphs and paper cut-outs of flowers and fruit.
- Shopping: Sniff out the flower market in Cours Saleya, and hunt for vintage bric-à-brac in the antiques stalls.
