Weekend in Nice
Welcome to the heart of the Côte d’Azur
Just 3 minutes on foot from the train station, enjoy the perfect location under the watchful eye of the Notre-Dame de l’Assomption Basilica and explore the city of Nice. The names of the streets in the area - Rue de Suisse, Rue d’Italie, Rue d’Angleterre and Rue de Russie - will remind you that this shopping district was originally the destination of choice for those in the upper crust seeking some winter sun in Europe from 1860 onwards.
There’s such a wide range of things to see and do in Nice. You’re at the very heart of the city, which itself is the very heart of the Côte d’Azur. Thanks to the train, Cannes and Monaco are almost as close as the of Avenue Jean Médecin, the major tree-lined shopping street that heads straight towards the sea and the Jardin Albert 1er. Then there are the beaches of the Baie des Anges, including Centenaire, Beau-Rivage, Opéra, Ponchettes and Castel. Look to your left at the colourful façades of the winding streets of Old Nice at the foot of the castle. Then on the right, head down the 7 km of the Promenade des Anglais, which has never lost any of its lustre. The Belle Époque architecture and the local history collections at the Musée Masséna remain the Promenade’s main attractions, as well as being a hot spot for jogging and roller skating.
Thus, whether on foot or via the tram close to our hotel, you will soon many of the great things Nice has to offer. Whether you’re with us for leisure or work, the great things to see and do in Nice are ever so close or within easy reach. If you’re here on business, you’ll be pleased to know that the Palais des Congrès et des Expositions Nice Acropolis, with its auditorium of the Salle Apollon having no fewer than 2464 seating spaces, is also within easy reach.
