Promenade des Anglais
La Prom, as it is known to the locals, is a long stretch of promenade along the luscious Nice coastline. Historically, the beach was deserted but is now a popular destination for both the locals and tourists alike. Cycling and rollerblading are popular pursuits along La Prom, with many locals choosing to relax there on weekends, taking in the perfect Mediterranean views.
The French Pyramids
The French Pyramids, whilst not as grand as their Egyptian counterparts, are definitely worth a visit. Built in the 18th and 19th centuries, during Napoleonic times, the monuments are located in a rural town, slightly out of Nice. Sadly, the ruins have not stood the test of time and only partially conserved, but their ruins are still a sight to behold if not for the novelty of having pyramids within the heart of Europe.
Musée d’art moderne et d’art contemporain
A recent development to Nice, is the Musée d’art moderne et d’art contemporain, built in 1990. The museum is dedicated to contemporary art and is a must for those that covet culture and art in its quirkiest form. The building of the museum is as impressive as the treasures that it holds, and is a contemporary piece of architecture. It is certainly worth a visit if you like your art a little on the different side.
The beautiful city of Nice is a must for those who crave culture and relaxation as well as the opulence of the French Riviera. It’s always nice to visit Nice.
