Explore Nice and its highlights with a hired car

The Old Town of Nice is a beautiful place to start your journey around the city. It is full of romantic winding narrow alleys and cobblestone streets. You will feel the town’s lively ambience on all corners. While strolling along the main street, it is worth stepping into one of the bustling restaurants where you will be served a number of French delicacies.

Just a stone’s throw from Nice’s Old Town, you will find the fashionable Promenade des Anglais. It is a popular place among skaters and cyclists, who spend their evenings pulling off tricks against the backdrop of the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

Castle Hill is another notable Nice highlight. It overlooks the stunning coastline and is a romantic option for couples. Originally, the fortification was perceived as impenetrable; however, in 1706, the castle was destroyed by King Louis XIV’s army. Today, it is a lovely park offering wonderful views and plenty of space for long strolls.

All art lovers should consider a visit to Musée Matisse. The museum is located in a delightful historic Genoese villa and houses a diverse collection of Matisse’s masterpieces. The collection comprises 218 drawings, 236 designs, and 68 paintings. There is also something for fans of sculpture, as the museum holds 56 exhibits created by the artist.

Those art lovers who are left unsatisfied after a visit to Musée Matisse should head towards the Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain, where they will find an extensive collection of paintings created by 20th and 21st-century artists. In the courtyard, there is a peculiar installation depicting a creature that resembles a lizard. If you are into art, you should not miss Musée Chagall either.

Cathédrale Orthodoxe Russe Saint-Nicolas is an interesting example of religious architecture. It is considered one of the most beautiful churches in Nice. The cathedral was mostly inspired by the Muscovite style and is a showcase of detailed ornamentation. Inside, you will find a number of murals, icons, decorative walls, and interesting wood-carved sculptures.
