1. Vieux Nice
Nice' Old Town is such a treat for any explorer. With its well-preserved buildings from the 1700's, you won't mind getting lost in its narrow, winding alleyways. For all its delis, restaurants, and bars, there is one place that will instantly draw you in--the Saleya. A huge market square that's divided into sections. The most famous being the food market filled with fresh produce and foodie souvenirs and the flower market for all your fresh blooms and fragrances need.
2. Promenade des Anglais
In 2015 this famous 4-kilometer stretch of the Baie des Anges was submitted as a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage status. And rightly so, the sweeping promenade is filled with historic landmarks including the Hôtel Negresco, the art-deco Palais de la Méditerranée (1929) and Niçoise sculptor Sabine Géraudie’s giant iron sculpture La Chaise de SAB (2014), which pays homage to the city’s famous blue-and-white beach chairs.
3. Musée Matisse
The brightly colored museum in the heart of the Cimiez quarter is home to a multitude of works by Henri Matisse. The fascinating art pieces range from oil paintings, drawings, sculptures, tapestries, and his most famous paper cut-outs. They are displayed as a permanent collection in a red-ochre 17th-century Genoese villa surrounded by an olive grove. Matisse himself is buried in the Monastère Notre Dame de Cimiez cemetery, across the park from the museum.
