Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the capital of the Alpes- Maritimes département. Located in the French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur, on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Alps, Nice is about 13 kilometres from the principality of Monaco, and its airport is a gateway to the principality as well. The natural beauty of the Nice area and its mild Mediterranean climate make it a very popular tourist destination.
Nice itself is a really pedestrian friendly city, with swathes of its historic old town pedestrianised and plenty of cobbled squares where children can let off steam while adults dine on a nearby terrace. The old town is full of hidden corners for exploring. A pedestrian friendly city with endless opportunities for outdoor activities, and its strategic location and bustling port make it a popular choice for relocation with the International Community.
