Designed by architects Buzzi, Bernasconi, and Baptiste, the Nice Acropolis Convention Center opened its doors in 1984 and was inaugurated in May 1985 when the prestigious Apollo auditorium was completed. Its layout was carefully designed: gardens, fountains, and numerous works of art are on exhibit outside the building.

Acropolis is located at 7km from the Nice-Côte d'Azur International Airport and a stone's throw from the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art, the Theatre of Nice, the Bibliothèque Régionale (Regional Library).

It is ideally situated in the centre of Nice and only 10 minutes by tram from the Promenade des Anglais and the sea (Tram frequency: every 05 minutes from 04h30 am until 01h30 am).
