Its cultural heritage and architecture

Nice tourism

The Côte d’Azur’s capital is the ideal place for a holiday. The Promenade des Anglais, the sun-bathed beaches, Place Masséna, Old Nice and Cours Saleya, the tree-lined gardens, the museums, the carnival, the jazz festival - Nice really is the capital of joie-de-vivre.

Promenade des Anglais

Nice owes its international fame to the Promenade des Anglais. Stretched along the Baie des Anges, it was originally just a 2 metre-wide path created in 1820 by a visiting English vicar using his own funds. Baptised the “chemin des Anglais” (the English path) by the local population, the enlarged pathway was inaugurated in 1931 by one of Queen Victoria’s sons.

Place Masséna

Built in the middle of the 19th century, Place Masséna, an icon of Nice, is a must-see right by the hotel. On the north side, you’ll find elegant buildings and arcades adorned with Pompeiian red. On the east side, you’ll get beautiful views looking towards the hills.
