Find the information you need

This site is divided in two parts:

  • one dealing with the city of Nice (that's where your are)
  • one dealing with the Maritime Alps, the departement around Nice, including Monaco, the Riviera and the mountains.

To go from one part to the other use the "Region" menu above the text.

To find directly the articles you're interested in use the Search form in the upper right corner of this page -below the picture- or our interactive map.

French for "French Riviera" is "Côte d'Azur" - The Azure Coast. Hence the name of this website. 


Nice Azur is a touristic guide for Nice, the French Riviera and the  Maritime Alps, meant for visitors who plan to stay in our region. It's an insider guide, written by Nice inhabitants. Our aim is to give you the practical and cultural information which will make your trip easier and more interesting.

This is not an official site. Neither the Nice city's one, nor any other institutional organisation's one.

Nice Azur is not a promotion site, such as the tourists' office one. Nice is not short of assets. However not everything is perfect here and we clearly state what we don't like.

All the text is made of subjective appreciations and therefore only reflects the authors' opinions. These  personnal points of view don't claim to be universally shared.

A site made with you

The covid-19 crisis

France has been under a complete lockdown from March the 16th to May the 11th (2020), and a second time in November. We give you news about the restrictions to enable you to decide whether it's worth planning a trip here soon.
