Nice Sightseeing


The National Sport Museum houses a fascinating collection of sporting objects and memorabilia and explores sport from historical, sociological, anthropological and economic perspectives. Interactive activities make it suitable for all the family. (museedusport.fr)

Explore Nice with a volunteer who will show all the local places. Complete an online questionnaire about your interests seven days before you arrive so a "greeter" can create a tailored tour for you. (www.nice-greeters.com)

Key Areas

A guided Segway Tour might not be ultra-cool, what with the helmet and all, but it is seriously fun and a good way to see the promenade. You also see a lot of the old town, and learn a bit about its history. All info from the tourist office at 5 Promenade des Anglais.

Day Trips

Head into the mountains to Gréolières-les-Neiges where, depending on the weather, you can explore the peaks on foot, by mountain bike, skis, or even horse-drawn sleigh. (www.stations-greolieres-audibergue.com/activites-greolieres-hiver)

Go by train to Grasse (1 hour) and take the free tour of the perfume factory, from the laboratory and conditioning room to the shop. You can even create your own scent. http://www.galimard.com/index.php/en/galimard.html

A short train ride away from Nice lies Monaco, which oozes glamour and wealth. Check out the fascinating Musée Océanographique or head to the beach. www.visitmonaco.com
