"Nice" is too mild a word for this world-renowned city

As the unofficial capital of the French Riviera (or the Cote d'Azur), Nice represents the best of what Mediterranean scenery and culture has to offer. You get a historic old town, upscale markets and shops, stunning architecture, and fabulous restaurants. Oh, and don't forget the beach. Nice's pebbly shores are popular with visitors of all ages, and the views from its famous waterfront, the Promenade des Anglais, will provide the photos you need to make your friends wish they'd come with you. Book a Nice vacation rental and start exploring this coastal gem.

Things to do

Museums don't get dull when they're in the prettiest places

Nice, and the Riviera itself, is dotted with more museums than a normal person can fit into a single stay, but you can always try. The Musee Massena is a great place to start, as it's set in an impressive belle epoque building and tells the history of the Riviera, including everything from expat Americans to the annual Carnival festival. The Musee d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain features avant-garde art from the 50s to the present and has a rooftop gallery with amazing views, and the Musee Matisse is artfully situated in a 17th-century Genoese villa.

Activities

There aren't many old-world neighborhoods as nice as Nice's

Make sure your walking shoes are well soled before stepping out of your Nice vacation rental, because strolling the city's streets will be one of the highlights of your trip. In the shaded, winding alleyways of Nice's old town (Vieux Nice to the locals), you'll find delis, boutiques, and bars, not to mention architectural wonders like the 16th-century Chapelle de la Misericorde. Tired feet? Opt for a Segway tour along the Promenade des Anglais, Nice's paved walkway that skirts the Bay of Angels. Try to spot Sabine Geraudie's giant iron sculpture, La Chaise de SAB, as you roll by.

Weather

Welcome to Nice and another day of sun (300 per year!)

The weather in Nice is nice all year, so there's really no bad time to stop by. Summer is the busiest time for travelers, with 80° temps making for perfect beach weather, so if you're looking for a bargain rate on a Nice vacation rental, try mid-March to April or September to October, when it's still sunny but cooler and less crowded. Winter lows in the 50s might make you hesitate to sunbathe, but it's still a great time to see the sights. Don't forget to plan for Carnival in late February and early March.

Natural features

Take yourself on a journey from the beach to the mountains

Your Nice vacation rental might be set in the flatlands by the beach or up in the hills that rise gently inland. That combination makes a friendly habitat for evergreen trees and Norway spruce, as well as subtropical species like palm trees, eucalyptus, and citrus. For a break from the beach and city bustle, take a day trip to the Regional Natural Park of Prealpes d'Azur, a huge mountainous preserve that's home to a third of the plant life in France, as well as rolling hillsides and tiny villages.
