The Paillon is a coastal river of the Alpes-Maritimes that flows into the Mediterranean Sea in Nice, near the old district. Its source is north of Lucéram. It flows generally south, through L'Escarène, Peillon, Drap , La Trinité, and finally Nice.
The region of the Paillon and the Paillon de Contes is called the pays des Paillons. The river is covered in its last few kilometers in the city of Nice, with the Guillaume Apollinaire High School and the Palais des Congrès Acropolis over the river.
