Activities & Getaways
The Palais Masséna, located on the Promenade des Anglais and adjoining the West End Hotel, is in fact a villa dating from the 19th century, completely refurbished in 2008.
It offers its visitors a chronological and thematic approach to the history of Nice from 1792 to 1939, as well as a large library on the history of the County of Nice, Provence, Savoy and Northern Italy.
A legendary archipelago facing the Bay of Cannes, the islands of Lérins, Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat, are two unique jewels combining natural and cultural heritage.
The Island of Sainte-Marguerite offers visitors 152 hectares of state-owned pine and eucalyptus forest. The Fort Royal overlooking the island is now a museum of the sea, but it was also used as a prison…
Originally the cradle of the city, the castle was completely destroyed under the reign of Louis XIV.
Now known as park and garden, this place has become a cult for locals and turists. Overlooking the ocher roofs of the Old Nice, the park and the Castle’s hill offer a breathtaking view of the Baie des Anges, the Port and the mountains.
