Welcoming Visitors to Nice, France

 

Live like a local when holidaying in Nice

Cycle the Promenade: Velos blues are popular in Nice, there are nearly 2000 of them to hire, and 175 bike stations. You needn’t be a cycling pro, as the promenade provides a flat and enjoyable cycle! Here’s a tip- the first 30 minutes are free, so unlock it and return it back to a stand half an hour later and get another one out!

Don’t miss the boat: We can’t recommend enough the experience of a day trip for a well-rounded experience of the Riviera. A ferry service is available from Nice Port to a number of destinations including: St Tropez; La Corniche d’Or (between Cannes/St Raphael); San Remo (Italy); Various ports in Corsica. We can particularly recommend the 1 ½ hour boat trip around Villefranche bay which leaves from the Cote d’azur office at Nice Port and also the Lerin Island/corniche trip which leaves at 9 am and returns at 7pm. Anchor between the islands in the midst of glittering turquoise waters and enjoy a refreshing dip before an al fresco lunch.

Visitor Information Centre: A small tourist information office is situated near the fountain at Place Massena, and another on the Promenade des Anglais next to the Casino (http://www.nice-tourism.com/en/tourist-information-offices-in-nice.html).

Evening Entertainment:

Nice Opera is within walking distance, and several of the cinemas in Nice show the latest releases of films in English Language (look for VO version). For a sundowner head, to Hotel Meridien for panoramic views of the bay, or for a more lively night, Wayne’s bar is full of a younger crowd each night. A few train stops down the coast lead you to Cannes, which is brimming with a vast array of bars and clubs, or push the boat out and head to Monaco to try your hand in the casino.

Local shops: Most importantly, where can you get your breakfast croissant from! When you step out the apartment there are several epiceries, boulangeries to get essentials; or head up the high street by tram or foot to Monoprix, the supermarket. In Place St Francois the daily fish market sells fresh catches and finishes as the fishmonger’s energy levels deplete, or Cours Saleya is the place for fresh fruit, veg and traditional nibbles, every day until about 1.30pm except Monday when it is a flea market.
