Nice (city name) is a really beautiful place to visit if you ever go to France. Not many people are very familiar with this destination, except maybe the wealthy. Nice is known for its blue-green sea, shopping, and art-deco architecture. If you need more reasons to stop by Nice, check out this top 5 destinations to see in Nice and why. There is no particular order for these tourist stops, but they should be satisfactory for those with little time on their hands.

Promenade des Anglais
This spot in the French Riviera is known for its royal blue chairs nicely (no pun intended) aligned on the beach, locals trying to stay fit by performing all sorts of sports, and crepes sellers. The seaside restaurants may be a bit overpriced, but they serve delicious foods.

Old Nice
This area has narrow streets and it’s perfect for those who love shopping. Of course souvenirs is the main merchandise, but how else will you prove you visited the city? You can check the restaurants, and clubs offering a colorful nightlife, but don’t forget to have an ice cream or too as well.

Le Chateau
Don’t forget your camera when visiting Le Chateau. You will surely want to take in and photograph the scenery that include the sea and the city. This is mostly a ruin of a castle. You have free access if you take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Cours Saleya Flower Market
This is another place for shopping enthusiasts. This is actually the famous Flower Market. It hosts many shops, cafes, and of course, flower vendors. Keep in mind that Mondays are reserved for a flea market and antique sellers, so plan your visit well if you hope to buy some long forgotten treasure.

Nice Port
Tourists seem to ignore this destination in favor of other attractions. However this place holds the hippest nightclubs, and it offers a great view of the ferries leaving for Corsica. If you go to Old Nice, you have no excuse to stop by the Port as well, because it is right around the corner.
