Discover Nice

Located in the extreme south-east of France, 30 kilometres from the Italian border, Nice is a colourful Mediterranean mish-mash flanked by the gorgeous Bay of Angels on one side and the rolling Ligurian Alps on the other. Nice’s 350,000 inhabitants enjoy superb culture (museums, plays, opera, libraries and concerts) as well as blue skies, sparkling sea and sun year-round. Numerous public works by celebrated artists such as Chagall, Nikki de Saint-Phalle and Matisse are dotted around the city.

The Old Nice is a labyrinthine quarter of medieval streets, delicious local delicacies for nibbling on the go (courgette fritters, pissaladière, socca) and a decidedly Italian feel. Savour the sea air and gorgeous views as you stroll along the Promenade des Anglais!

Nice is also the economic hub of the south of France, it is vibrant and attracts students from all over the world. Considered the artistic and cultural metropolis of the Côte d’Azur, Nice hosts a wide range of renowned museums, numerous festivals and events for all tastes.

Our partner school, France Langue, is located in the Libération-Borriglione district, a very lively bourgeois and multicultural area, with its many cafés, bars and restaurants, its artists’ studios, its cinema complex and its market with a typical Nice atmosphere.

You will find a dynamic and warm atmosphere, all in an incomparable Mediterranean climate, summer and winter!
