What to do 

Nice is a beautiful city on the French Riviera which we have named one of the most Instagrammable holiday destinations in Europe. Ever since the 18th Century aristocrats and high society have been travelling Nice for the sunny climate and beautiful architecture. The city is still a hot spot for the rich and famous and the surrounding areas of the French Riviera like Cannes and Monaco are both within easy reach. If you’re heading to Nice to watch the football, but want to make a holiday out of it, then take a look at festivals and exhibitions happening on the French Riviera and tie your visit in with another cultural activity. The French Riviera is also famous for its beaches so make sure you schedule in some time to lie back and relax on the coast.
