Attractions near the Aria
Explore a crumbling castle
Perched atop a hill to the east of Vieux Nice (Old Town) are the remains of a 12th-Century chateau, simply called Le Chateau. One tower, which dates back to the 16th Century and is still standing, houses an interesting naval museum.
You can reach the top of the hill by climbing steps from the Quai des Etats-Unis, passing pretty gardens along the way. Alternatively, there’s a tourist train called Petit Train de Nice. The views from the 92-metre-high hill are quite memorable, with panoramas over Nice’s Old Town, along the coast and over the port of Nice.
Live music in Old Nice
Whether you’re looking for an upmarket evening out or a high-energy dance floor to break a sweat on, Nice has the music to match your mood. There are a number of clubs and bars around town that boast quality DJs. Recommendations include restaurant and bar Odace and renowned club Le Smarties and Guest, which is Nice's home of house music.
