Almost uniquely among the harbours along this famous strip of coastline, Nice is still a commercial
port as well as a yacht harbour; while yachts use the inner basin, cargo ships berth on the outer mole. Thanks to the scale of the harbour, yachts of virtually any size are able to berth here. The port is close to Vieux Nice, an area of narrow, winding streets and old buildings that have hardly changed for two
centuries. Seasonal events include the Nice Carnival in February, the Boat Show in March, St Peter's Day
and the celebration of the sea in June.
