Nice Port

Mediterranean Cruise

The Greeks founded Nice, naming it Nike, or Victory. They could not have been more accurate, as Nice has come to represent the perfect combination of French urban chic (itís the fifth largest city in France) and laid-back European enjoyment. Itís also one of the most visited locales in the world, with seemingly every student in the world converging here during the summer months. Monaco is just a short train ride away, as are Cannes and Villefranche. Even though you will be attracted to the opulence and grandeur of Monte Carlo, or the haute culture of Cannes, donít sell Nice short.

While Nice is the unofficial capital of the French Riviera, it is more than just a beach town. Seven museums, a beautiful opera house, and diverse world architecture all come together to contribute an air of culture to the city. Artists, writers, and philosophers have been drawn here throughout the centuries, with the city counting Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas, and Friedrich Nietzsche among its visitors over the years.

As much as Nice tries to gain a reputation as a well-rounded, cultured city, its city fathers know that tourists help pay the bills, and some gorgeous hotels and resorts extend along Promenade des Anglais and Quai des Etats-Unis, the beautiful beachside promenade in Nice. The beaches are busy virtually year round, as Nice enjoys excellent weather throughout the four seasons. There are over 300 days of sunshine per year here, so you will have no problem working on your tan.
