Nice is not a bad city at all. It's clean and pretty with excellent seafood. There are plentiful beaches but the large rocks will hurt your feet. The modern art museum is appropriately wacky.
I would say the best thing about Nice is that it's a good, inexpensive base for checking out the entire Riviera.

Nice was a lot smaller than I expected, but a great place to explore for a couple days - especially if you're looking for a beach vacation. The promenade is beautiful, and there are a number of cultural sites to take in: the modern art museum, the cemetery at the top of the hill that offers a breathtaking view, the Candyland-like Russian Orthodox Church. But really, all you need is a sunny day at the beach here and you'll be getting a true French Riviera experience.

I loved that I could walk to the beach from my hotel, barefoot. I loved the flowered plantings, the architecture, the special little pastries in the bakeries, and I loved that I could find an American movie in English to watch.

Nice is a beautiful small city in Southern France. I love the colors of the buildings, lots of bright yellow and orange. It's easy to walk around from one end to another, with a beautiful ocean next to you and lots of shops and streets to wander through. The ocean water is gorgeous and clear, but it's VERY rocky and not sandy at all. Definitely a must-see if you are in Southern France.

I can really only say that found this city "okay". Compared to most of the places in the area that I visited both before and after, Nice was the most touristy, the dirtiest, the most crowded, and the most expensive. Sure, it's beautiful and the hotels, restaurants, and shops are pretty neat. Also, the Musee Picasso is worth a visit. Otherwise, I'd say that Nice is worth a skip. The Mediterranean is a big sea-- there are plenty of other towns with fewer people, better beaches, and better prices.

Nice is a great city. It has a totally different energy from Paris and is much less frenetic, although it can be a mob scene during the summer. Overall, Nice has a very relaxed vibe and is truly a beach town.

Obviously everyone who goes to France can't deny themselves the shiny lights of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
But, if you're already in France why not stop by Nice. You will be happily surprised walking the streets, the promenades.
I'd swing by this place, who knows what hidden gems await your discovery.
