Andrew's Nice Folio

Personalized for Andrew

"You have to pity Nice. Overshadowed by megawatt Riviera neighbors like aristocratic Monaco, red-carpet Cannes and Champagne-soaked St.-Tropez, France’s fifth-largest city is often written off as a dowdy haven of retirees. Yet Nice packs most of its neighbors’ lures — year-round sun, Mediterranean Sea, belle époque and Art Deco architecture — with the bonuses of an atmospheric old quarter, an evolving restaurant scene, the Riviera’s best museums and some high-profile public works. Place Garibaldi, the central square, has been pedestrianized and spruced up, while the formerly lackluster port area is filling up with the city’s coolest restaurants and bars. And thanks to the new Promenade du Paillon, Nice has an alluring public park in its heart. A city for all budgets, Nice now buzzes with an energy and diversity that often surpasses its coastal rivals." - The New York Times
