The oldest part of the city is a change from Nice’s broad boulevards and expansive squares like Place Masséna.
It’s a mesh of alleys with local shops and restaurants, darkened by tall ochre-painted apartment buildings and dominated by the Colline du Château to the east.
Glaciers, crêperies and cafes all flow onto the squares, which are often lively until the early hours.
There’s a strong Italian feel about the architecture and setting, which is no coincidence as Nice wasn’t French until the Treaty of Turin in 1860
Nice’s beaches are pebbly, and while they’re beautiful to wander past, they may not be to everyone’s taste for sunbathing.
There are private sections providing the comfort of sun loungers, and occasionally even laying sand.
Everywhere else you can still pass a relaxing afternoon in the sun, but the currents might be a bit strong for little ones and the beach shelves quite steeply too.
One beach guaranteed to delight the kids is on the other side of Mont Boron at Villefranche-sur-Mer, where the waters are shallower and screened from the open sea by the headlands at Cap de Nice and Cap-Ferrat.
This 19th-century villa on the Promenade des Anglais was donated to the city by the Duke of Rivoli in 1919 on the condition that it should be opened to the public as a museum of local history.
You have to go to see what it’s like inside one of these Belle Époque mansions, and it has gardens that were designed by Édouard André, also responsible for those at the Monte Carlo Casino.
There’s an intriguing miscellany of curiosities inside, like Napoleon’s death mask and a tiara belonging to his wife, Empress Joséphine, as well as a collection of 19th-century French art on the second floor.
It’s impossible to talk about Nice without mentioning the famous Promenade des Anglais, "English Promenade". Formerly a favourite resort for English people during winter months, it’s today the most famous tourist attraction of the city.
This world-famous 7km promenade runs from the Castle Hill. If you want to do the whole Promenade des Anglais, it’s best to rent a bike!
Also in Nice’s old quarter is this lovely flower and fresh produce market, which sets up every day except Monday when it’s replaced by a flea market.
If you’re holidaying in an apartment in Nice then this market is a godsend, selling fresh produce, regional delicacies like socca made on site and flowers sourced from the Provence and Alpes-Maritimes countryside.
Many sellers will tempt you with free samples, which is an effective way of getting your business! The flower stalls stay open the longest, remaining until 17:30, long after the food sellers have packed up.
Beat the tourist rush and get there as early as possible.
There’s a three Euro fee to get in to this park, but it’s money well-spent considering how much there is crammed into these seven hectares on the western end of the Promenade des Anglais.
Kids go free and, it’s one of the few attractions in Nice that they’re guaranteed to enjoy.
There are 20 themed zones, with 2,500 plant species growing around ponds, in a modern greenhouse (one of Europe’s largest) and in a variety of gardens.
There are also animal enclosures and terrariums, with turtles, otters and tropical spiders, while mandarin ducks, Chilean flamingos and iguanas roam freely in the greenhouse.
Monastère de Cimiez
This monastery on a rise, north of the centre was established by the Benedictines in the 800s.
You get there along the Boulevard de Cimiez, one of Nice’s most impressive thoroughfares, with extraordinary 19th-century hotels and mansions.
The gothic monastery buildings are from the 14th and 15th centuries, with delicate frescoes from the 1500s.
But most visitors make the climb for one purpose: To see the exquisite gardens, with flower beds, topiaries, geometric lawns, pergolas and a terrace with an unbelievable view of the city.
These gardens are the oldest on the Côte d’Azur, plotted in 1546 and a potager for the monks.
