Where is Nice?
Nice lies on the south-east Mediterranean coast of France, at the foot of the Alps, only 30 kilometres north-west of Cannes. It is one of the eastern-most towns of the French Riviera, a long stretch of seaside resorts between the National Natural Reserve of Camargue and the Duchy of Monaco.
The border with Italy is 30 kilometres to the west via the A8 motorway. Follow the A8 southwest for Cagnes-sur-Mer, Cannes, and Marseille in Provence. Paris is over 900 kilometres to the north. Other large cities around Nice are Lyon, 450 kilometres to the north via the A7, and Montpellier, 320 kilometres to the west.
Invest in Nice
Nice is famous as a holiday destination in the French Riviera, but nowadays it is actively promoting itself as a business destination for conferences and networking. Local authorities have made significant investments into the infrastructure and PR of the city, in the hope of competing with such popular destinations as Frankfurt, Barcelona, Vienna, and London.
Nice hosts hundreds of business events every year and offers everything the business visitor may need, including the country’s second-largest international airport, a newly renovated congress and exhibition centre, and over 180 hotels. Sophia Antipolis technological park is the largest R&D centre for IT, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and biotech industries, and is home to the headquarters of HP, IBM, and Oracle.
Nice boasts a very favourable climate for ICT and tech companies of all sizes. Businesses here benefit from a strategic location combined with a prosperous digital ecosystem in a sustainable and interconnected city.
The local government is very supportive of startup culture and offers financial support. However, there may be significant paperwork and a complex tax system to navigate. Nice's excellent climate and its motivating environment attract many qualified specialists, but employment costs are relatively high.

Things to Do in Nice
Nice is an international city with a creative and welcoming community, and has been known as a magnet for the wealthy for centuries. However, Nice is also a great centre of arts and culture, and is home to almost as many museums as Paris.
The most famous part of Nice is its bustling Promenade des Anglais, lined with cafés and full of joggers and street musicians. This may be called the city’s true centre, as all transport routes start from here. For great shopping, head for Jean Médecin Avenue and walk though to Place Masséna for its great selection of places to eat.
Next, explore the old town with its narrow streets and antique shops. Valrose Castle and the surrounding park are also worth a visit, or head for Mon-Boronte Hill. Of course there is also a long stretch of coastline in Nice less than one-and-a-half kilometres from the station, as well as the city's historical quarter.
Those who seek peace and quiet usually tend to live in the north of the city or in its suburbs. Real estate prices here are lower and neighbourhoods are quieter. However, you do not have the same convenient access to shops, and you need a car to commute.
The cost of living in Nice may vary significantly depending on your lifestyle choices. If you choose a quiet neighbourhood and do your grocery shopping at Sunday farmers’ markets you can get the benefit of good quality life with a lower price tag.
Culture lovers are spoilt for choice here: theatres are plenty and art museums and galleries are many and varied, from the Archeology Museum to the Matisse Museum (Musée Matisse), and the Chagall Museum.
For shopping, go to neighbouring Cagnes-sur-Mer for large shopping malls. Outdoor lovers will be delighted by hiking tracks and canoeing routes on winding rivers. All outdoor activities from golf to horse riding are readily available. Neighbouring towns are charming and make for a lovely day trip.
Staying at our Nice self-catering holiday accommodation allows you the privacy and the flexibility to make the most of all that the city has to offer. Browse our selection of serviced apartments in Nice and choose one that is right for you.
