Nice: A Cultural Getaway an Hour from Esterel Caravaning

Discover the Charm of Nice, the Jewel of the Alpes-Maritimes

Just over an hour’s drive from Esterel Caravaning, Nice, the true gem of the Alpes-Maritimes, has attracted tourists for more than 150 years. Since the 19th century, the Russian and English aristocracy was charmed by the mild climate and beauty of the Bay of Angels.

The old town of Nice, with its lively alleys and baroque churches, echoes the city’s Italian origins. Here, treasures like the Lascaris Palace and the famous Cours Saleya flower market await discovery. The Castle Hill offers breathtaking views of the sea, the city, and the hinterland. The Promenade des Anglais, skirting the bay, is renowned for its casinos, iconic hotels like the Negresco, and pebble beach.

Venturing into the city’s heights, the Cimiez Hill is notable for its luxurious residences, a monastery blending medieval and baroque styles, surrounded by a tranquil garden. Here lie the painters Matisse and Dufy, and the Matisse Museum, which boasts a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and engravings. Nice is also home to several other significant museums, such as the Chagall Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Nicholas, with its six bulbous domes and red brick facade, offers a unique experience. Built in 1912, it is a replica of Moscow’s Saint Basil’s Cathedral. A trip to Nice from Esterel Caravaning is an immersion into a world of culture, history, and natural beauty, an unforgettable adventure for all visitors.
