Nice is primarily the beaches of the Cote d'Azur. One public beach is free, but it is far from ideal in terms of cleanliness. For real pleasure, all vacationers are advised to sunbathe on one of twenty beaches within the city, they are divided between hotels, and the cost of staying in the sandy sector entirely depends on the price of staying at the hotel. Outside the city, there are wild rocky beaches, which are also popular with a certain category of tourists.
Nice Markets - this is the second must-see item on the list of visits for guests of the resort town. Shopping tours in Nice are a little different from most of the Cote d'Azur tours, there are also luxury boutiques, but they are not presented in such a number. Flea markets are especially popular with tourists of various categories, where you can buy not only second-hand trifles, but also real antiques.
Nice is known to most tourists who come on excursions for its number of museums, the leading role among which is undoubtedly the Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition is located in the former mansion of Princess Kochubey, built at the end of the 19th century. Two floors house a unique exhibition of authentic works by masters from the 15th to the 20th century. A special place is occupied by the Impressionist Hall, where you can see paintings by Monet, Renoir and Degas.
Another important museum in Nice is the Museum of Modern Art - a futuristic building made of glass from steel, inside which is an exhibition of the most unusual works of art by living artists, sculptors and designers.
Palais Lascari is one of the most striking buildings in Nice. The baroque building once belonged to one of the richest families in the city, but now it is a place of regular excursions. Of particular interest among tourists is the Museum of Musical Instruments, located on one of the floors of the palace. The museum exhibits over 400 instruments made by legendary European craftsmen.
The only Orthodox church in Nice is St. Nicholas Church - a monument of the pseudo-Russian style in world architecture. This shrine was built in 1912 with the money of the imperial dynasty.
