For those looking to fly from the UK to Nice, Easyjet flights depart every day from London Gatwick, and British Airways operate flights to Nice from Heathrow. Delta fly directly from New York JFK to Nice, and visitors from Boston can change in London. Those coming from India can catch a flight from Delhi to Paris with Air France, and then change to a regional flight to the Cote d'Azur, while if you are flying from the southern hemisphere, a change will also be necessary. One option for Australians is to fly to Dubai with Qantas and then switch to Emirates, who fly directly into Nice from there. South Africans can fly with Air France via Paris Orly. Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is located on the coast, south-west of the city center. To reach the center, take Bus numbers 98 or 99 which leave from Terminal Two. A slower bus (route 23) also leaves from Terminal One, and is slightly cheaper.
Nice is the capital of France's famous Cote d'Azur - a string of high-class resorts including Cannes and Antibes that are associated with movie star glamour. Aside from the beaches of the coast, Nice itself has plenty of offer. Anyone arriving after flights from Nice can head to the Matisse Museum to learn about one of the city's most famous sons, and they can climb to the city's castle for stunning views across the bay. The beach at Nice is the main attraction, however. Everyone who visits should stroll the full length of the Promenade des Anglais and take some time out to relax. After that, there is nothing better than diving into the Old Town to sample traditional southern cooking and the fine wines of Provence.
