Urban community of Nice Côte d'Azur

The Urban community of Nice Côte d'Azur (French: communauté urbaine Nice Côte d'Azur), is the former intercommunal structure gathering the city of Nice (France) and some of its suburbs.

The Urban community of Nice Côte d'Azur encompasses essentially the eastern part of the metropolitan area of Nice (see infobox at Nice article for the metropolitan area), the western communes of the metropolitan area around Cannes and Antibes having refused to join in.

Those parts of the metropolitan area that are not inside the Community have formed different intercommunal structures, such as:

As of the beginning of 2005, Cannes itself and the few communes around Cannes still refuse to join any intercommunal structure or to create one of their own.

On 1 January 2012, the urban community and three communities of communes merged becoming the Metropolis Nice Côte d'Azur.
