Nice's location on the Mediterranean coast grants tourists the chance to view historic and cultural sights while remaining close to beautiful beaches and delightful seafront promenades. Nice, the cosmopolitan capital city of the Côte d'Azur, is a true tourist destination. This glorious part of the French Riviera is an ideal resort for sunworshippers, with many tourists choosing to relax here during the summer months. Sunbathing, paddling in the azure sea, swimming, water-skiing, parascending and jet-skiing are possible here as Nice is where many long stretches of sand and sea can be found.
Many visitors staying in apartments in Nice take pleasure in enjoying a relaxing stroll along the Promenade des Anglais, which dates back around 200 years. At the Baie des Anges, the promenade lines Nice's Mediterranean coast. Central to life in this city, the legendary promenade stretches as long as six kilometres and features bright blue chairs in which tourists can sit and take in the superb sea views. Tourists visiting Nice with the aid of Nice holiday rentals will discover a plethora of sightseeing opportunities around the city.
