Palais des Congrès Acropolis
The Palais des Congrès Acropolis is a convention center located in Nice, France. It hosts various conventions, fairs, concerts, operas, productions of shows and exhibitions. It also hosted the 1999 Davis Cup final, where the main convention was converted into a temporary tennis court.
Nice, capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera, sits on the pebbly shores of the Baie des Anges. Founded by the Greeks and later a retreat for 19th-century European elite, the city has also long attracted artists. Former resident Henri Matisse is honored with a career-spanning collection of paintings at Musée Matisse. Musée Marc Chagall features some of its namesake’s major religious works.
