Introducing Nice, your gateway to the glittering Côte d’Azur (also known as the French Riviera). This coastal city has been a draw for tourists since as far back as the 1700s, and one of our Nice cruises will reveal why. Start with a walk along the iconic Promenade des Anglais, which stretches out for 7km. Pause for a while on one of the blue chairs and soak in glorious views of the water, coffee in hand. You won’t be able to resist the beach for long – La Plage Publique de Beau Rivage sits at the east end of the Baies des Anges and is a sunny spot to sunbathe or take to the waves. Feeling peckish? Head to Blue Beach, which has earned itself the nickname “Gastro Beach” thanks to the plethora of quality restaurants nearby.
