  • Visit Nice (free): With a guide from the school, you’ll discover the Avenue Jean Médecin, the famous Place Masséna and then explore the old town, its flower market and narrow streets before arriving on the Promenade des Anglais. It’s a bit of a challenge to climb the Colline du Château, but it’s well worth the effort, as you’ll discover one of the world’s finest panoramas of the Baie des Anges. And to round off the tour, discover the charm of Place Rossetti in the heart of Vieux-Nice.
  • Segway ride (€25): Would you like to discover Nice in a different way? We offer a one-hour Segway tour of Nice with a guide. A fun way to discover the city without getting too tired.
    Visit the Musée Masséna (free): Discovering the history of Nice also means visiting this museum, where the works of art will help you explore the city’s cultural heritage. Housed in a sumptuous villa, you’ll find a vast collection of objets d’art, furniture and historical documents.

  • Visit Antibes (€20): Antibes is one of the region’s prettiest coastal towns. It has kept its typical character, with ramparts and a château that now houses the Picasso museum, while at the same time becoming a major yachting port with an amazing billionaires’ quay! What’s more, it has a sandy beach.
  • Visit Monaco and the Oceanographic Museum (35€): Discover Monaco: the old town, Monte Carlo, the Formula 1 circuit, Port Hercule, the Prince’s Palace. After a picnic on the beach or in a park, visit the Oceanographic Museum.
  • Visit Villefranche-sur-mer (€15): Discover this charming old fishing village that has retained all its 17th-century charm, with its colorful, winding streets and citadel, the chapel of St. Pierre decorated by artist Jean Cocteau, all set in an unforgettable harbor.
  • Visit Cannes and the Lérins Islands (€35): Made iconic by the international film festival, its hotels and luxury boutiques, a visit to Cannes is a unique experience. Enjoy the islands with their heavenly beaches and swim in crystal-clear waters.

The school offers many activities that you can do after lessons. Nice is a magnificent and interesting town. I really enjoyed jogging on the Promenade des Anglais and reading a book in the Monastry in Cimiez. I took the train to Antibes (musée Picasso), Cannes (Festival de Cannes) and Monaco which are close to Nice. I would recommend studying at and discovering the Côte d’Azur with alpha.b to everyone.

The numerous afternoon and weekend activities allowed me learn lots of things about the amazing city of Nice and its surroundings. Thanks to these events, I immediately met lots of other students who become friend and who made this experience even more amazing.

In general I would say that Nice is a very calm and beautiful city with easy commutes to surrounding areas. And alpha.b does not only have great personnel, good courses and have engaged teachers but also provides sufficient information and guided tours of Nice, Monaco and more. New happenings are presented every week if you want to do something other than the usual, like salsa dancing or have a crepe-party!
