Student life in Nice

Nice just might be the Mediterranean’s most sophisticated city. Culture-hounds, gourmands, sun-seekers and art-lovers can all easily get their fix in the capital of the Cote d’Azur. EF’s activities coordinators are onsite to introduce you to everything Nice has to offer, starting, of course, with its crystal blue coastline.

Sightseeing & Culture

Watch yachts pull into port as you stroll down the Promenade des Anglais, the world’s most elegant boardwalk. Meander through the maze of streets in Vieux Nice, stopping at the vibrant colors of the daily Cours Saleya flower and fruit market. People-watch and soak up sun from the comfort of a beach chair on the Plage Publique des Ponchettes. Sample fresh seafood at a sidewalk café on Place Rossetti. Browse the galleries of the dozens of museums and head to the hillside Parc du Chateau for spectacular views of the Cote d’Azur.

Sports & Outdoors

Swim in the azure blue seas just a short walk from EF’s classrooms. Join friends for beach volleyball matches on the main beach or take in the coastal views while parasailing behind a jet boat. Try scuba diving around the fish-filled shores or strap on a pair of rollerblades and glide down the Promenade des Anglais.


On the weekends, go beyond city limits to discover the beautiful Cote d’Azur cities of Cannes Antibes, St. Tropez and Ventimiglia. Glimpse royalty on a trip to Monaco and get a taste for cosmopolitan living in the international capitals of Paris and Barcelona.
