Nice, Port of Nice

A lively commercial neigborhood in the center of the city

The port of Nice

The construction of the port of Nice began in the mid-eighteenth century under the leadership of Charles Emmanuel III, and the works were spread over more than a century. Inaugurated in 1857, it has continued to evolve and is now the subject of a beautiful redevelopment decided by Mayor Christian Estrosi, to make a new place to live that allows more space for pedestrian and bicycle paths. Place Guynemer, docks and Lunel Papacino and Place de l’Ile de Beaute have established a new face in 2011.

A traditional living and shopping district, the port is framed by the Old Town, the hill of the Chateau and Mont Boron - Cap de Nice. It then continues by the highly sought out Franck Pilatte sector, the Parc Louisa and the Parc Vigier. The Port area has a diverse range architecture, where buildings alternate with Nicois style and recently built luxury buildings with terraces and parking. A vacation spot of the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians, among others, rich in properties and many investment opportunities. Positioned in a loop, the area is protected from the winds. Its port is a real pier of embarkation for Corsica where you can get to Corisca in 5 hours. It is also the place of mooring yachts that are a source of admiration for many passersby.

Whether facing the sea or in the small streets around the Port, you will find this area with an authenticity and a quality ambiance. Place Garibaldi is the soul of this district and the tram passing through is one of its major assets, since you can reach the Place Massena in just 5 minutes. The antique district unquestionably participates in the historic charm of Nice with its many artisans of art, antique dealers, gallery owners and designers. The flea market, the Place du Pin and  Place d’Arson and numerous petanque courts are key venues. And finally, a detour to thePlace d’Ile de Beaute where you can admire two historical monuments since 1999: Notre Dame and the portico of the port.
