Located in the French Riviera, Nice is France’s fifth largest city. Nice is just under 35 km from Cannes and is a stone throw from Nice airport. Popular for its Promenade des Anglais and its 7 km of beach alongside, Nice has one of the largest stretches of beach in the French Riviera. The old port of Nice is a marina today, lined with the luxury yachts of the super-rich visitors and residents. Enjoy a stroll along the narrow streets and admire the houses painted in warm colours, reds, yellows and sand tones.
