Visiting Nice – A City Guide

Nice, hub and heart of the Cote d'Azur, stretches along the curving Baie des Anges, looking south over the Mediterranean. The Alpes-Maritimes dominate the northern horizon. In spring and early summer, these high peaks are often snow-capped while down in Nice mimosas flower under a warm sun.
 

Nice: city layout

Nice's oldest quarter, Vieille Ville, is a maze of narrow streets lined with houses painted mellow pink and ochre. These days, yachts outnumber fishing boats in its Port Lympia harbour. Behind the port, streets slope gently to hilly Cimiez.


Quai des États Unis, a curving quayside avenue, stretches west along the waterfront from Vieille Ville, linking with Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s palm-lined waterfront esplanade.


North of Promenade des Anglais, the Jean Médecin district is the core of modern Nice.


West of central Nice and across the River Var from Nice Cote d'Azur Airport (NCE), St-Laurent-du-Var is Nice's laid-back neighbour, with its own sandy beach.


Top art collections in Nice

Art lovers will find lots to like in Nice. The city’s collections range from old masters to cutting-edge contemporary work.


In Cimiez, Musée Matisse and Musée Marc Chagall celebrate two giants of 20th-century modernism.


There's contemporary art at the Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC), where you'll find works by artists like Yves Klein.


West of the centre, sculptures by Rodin grace the gardens of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nice. Inside this opulent 19th-century villa, you can admire a collection of fine art from the 17th to the 20th centuries.


At the west end of Promenade des Anglais, the Musée Départemental des Arts Asiatiques looks like a giant sculpture in glass and gleaming steel. Inside, its collection spans art from China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia.


The concierge recommends…

  • The French Riviera Pass. This go-anywhere ticket combines free access to museums and other attractions, Nice OpenTour coaches and Trains Touristiques mini-trains, plus shopping and dining discounts.
  • Lunch by the sea. Treat yourself to a lounger, an umbrella and a restaurant table at one of the private beaches along Promenade des Anglais.
  • A one-hour Segway ride along the waterfront and through the old town.
  • A one-day cruise to Ile Ste-Marguerite, a tiny offshore island with rocky beaches and clear blue water with Trans Cote d'Azur.


Hotels in Nice

Accommodation in Nice ranges from grand hotels built for European plutocrats and aristocrats in the 19th century to boutique properties, small pensions and no-frills chain hotels.
 

In the newer part of the city, up-to-the-minute hotels cater to holiday visitors, business travellers and congress and convention delegates with facilities like gyms and free WiFi.
 

Jean Médecin, filled with smart shops, bars and restaurants, is the heart of modern Nice.
 

Hotels here are close to key attractions like Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC), Musée Marc Chagall and Musée Matisse, and to Nice's Palais des Congrès Acropolis conference centre. The Vieille Ville and the beaches of Promenade des Anglais are within walking distance.
 

Gare de Nice-Ville, Nice's main train station, is at the northern end of Avenue Jean Médecin. Express buses between the station and Nice Cote d'Azur Airport (NCE) take 15 minutes.
 

Stay by the sea in family-friendly St-Laurent-du-Var if you want somewhere a little slower and more relaxed than central Nice. The airport is only minutes away, and the city’s key attractions are easy to reach by bus.
 

Eating Out in Nice

You'll find all the flavours of the Mediterranean in Nice's restaurants. Salty anchovies play a starring role in pissaladière, Nice's take on pizza, and the city's signature dish, salade Nicoise.
 

Italian influences are strong, with dishes like ravioli and porchetta (slices of whole roast pig) popping up on many menus.
 

Fillets of rouget (red mullet) are served grilled or fried. Local olives are an essential ingredient in dips like tapenade.
 

You can sample all these delights and more on a gastronomic walking and tasting tour with A Taste of Nice. On a warm evening, dining outdoors at one of the restaurants clustered around Cours Saleya is one of Nice’s great delights.
 

Dotted along Promenade des Anglais are a number of seaside restaurants with their own private beaches. Lunching here, while looking out over the ocean, is another quintessential local foodie experience.
 

The chef recommends...

  • Socca: Nice's signature street snack. These chickpea-flour pancakes are served crispy on the outside and deliciously gooey inside.
  • Bouillabaisse: a spicy stew made with half-a-dozen kinds of fish, including monkfish and red gurnard.
  • Anchoiade: a savoury purée of anchovies and capers.
  • Courgette flowers: stuffed with minced meat and herbs or vegetables, or chopped and served in beignets (fritters).


Shopping in Nice

Cours Saleya is Nice's most famous market place – and rightly so. It’s bustling everyday with local shoppers and throngs of visitors.


From Tuesday to Sunday, you'll find stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, bread and other produce from early morning until 1PM, while the flower market is filled with vivid blossoms all day.


On Mondays, Cours Saleya becomes a sprawling brocante (bric-a-brac) market, where you can rummage for vintage linen and crockery, antique jewellery and other collectables.


After 6PM on summer days, the square brims with stalls selling arts and crafts handmade by local artisans.


Vieille Ville is a happy hunting ground for arts and crafts. Things to look out for include soaps made with regional olive oil and spoons, bowls and wooden toys made of olive wood.


Painted pottery figurines called santons, representing villagers and peasant folk in traditional costume, are uniquely Provencal.


You'll find big department stores like Galeries Lafayette close to Place Masséna and along Avenue Jean Médecin. For designer brands like Hermes, Armani, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, check out boutiques on Rue Paradis and Avenue du Verdon.


Picking up a bargain in Nice

  • Haggling is unacceptable in shops, but it's normal at brocante markets. African street traders, who tout watches, sunglasses and jewellery around town, happily accept a fraction of their asking price.
  • The French Riviera Pass offers discounts at boutiques, department stores, craft workshops and artists studios.
  • Canny locals shopping for fruit and vegetables wait for late bargains at markets like Cours Saleya. Traders sell the last of their produce cheaply between noon and closing time at 1PM.


Culture & Nightlife in Nice

Nice sparkles after dark. Hubs of the city's glamorous nightlife for more than a century include Casino Barriere le Ruhl, where you can take in glitzy dinner shows and live music. Le Relais, at the Hotel Negresco, is the place to see and be seen while listening to jazz and Latin sounds.
 

Théatre de Verdure is Nice's big open-air venue for world-class rock and pop acts. It’s hosted performers like Elton John, Iron Maiden, Santana and AC/DC.
 

If your tastes tend more toward opera, ballet and classical music, you'll find them all at Opéra de Nice, home of two resident ensembles, L'Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice and Ballet Nice Méditerranée.
 

Fans of cabaret, comedy and live music should head for Théatre de la Cité. At Théatre National de Nice, Centre Dramatique National Nice - Cote d'Azur presents modern French drama.
 

Live jazz in Nice

  • You can rub shoulders with locals at Shapko, where late-night jam sessions follow live jazz, blues and funk acts.
  • Le B-Spot hosts jazz and soul musicians, with free jam sessions on Sunday nights.
  • Le Jam is a popular venue for electro, rock and a capella music.


Visiting Nice with a Family

Parents and toddlers can discover Nice the easy way on Trains Touristiques mini-trains, which trundle along Promenade des Anglais and around town.
 

If your kids are older and more energetic, you can rent skateboards, scooters and rollerblades at Roller Station to explore Nice on wheels.
 

All the city's museums are free for children. Pop-art works at Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC) will amuse younger visitors.
 

They'll also enjoy colourful animal statues resembling giant toys, and be inspired by childlike paintings at Musée Internationale d'Art Naif Anatole Jakovsy.
 

On a hot day, children can cool off in town by splashing and paddling in pools and fountains at Place Masséna.
 

Nice's main stretch of beach is clean but pebbly. For sandy beaches, hop on a bus to St-Laurent-du-Var or catch a train to Villefranche, east of the city centre.
 

Family-friendly beaches around Nice

  • On Promenade des Anglais, Neptune Plage is a private beach on one of the waterfront's few sandy patches. It has a play area for younger children and a child-friendly seawater pool.
  • At St-Laurent-du-Var, Bay Star and Lounge has a private artificial beach, where the sand is replaced each summer.
  • Plage des Marinieres at Villefranche-sur-Mer, west of the city centre, is a short train ride from Nice. This sandy public beach is free and has showers and toilets, as well as snack bars and cafés that won't break the family budget. In summer, the beach is patrolled by lifeguards.

Great service and wonderful food
By MrandMrsP
Loved the seaview balcony of our executive room. The overall design [Less]
It's the staff that make the difference at this hotel
By Skidog
Stayed 7 nights 16-23 Sept: Hotel location is about 10 mins drive from Cannes port, or 10 mins on a bus from the stop 5 mins walk up the road or about 35 mins walk along the beaches. Had dinner for 3 [More] nights and was never less than pleased with the quality of service & food.Car parking can be alongside the hotel on the road(free) or in the hotels own garage(cost). Rooms are typical of Holiday Inn..comfortable & serviced well. Grounds are nice and come with a swimming pool. -Negative points for me personally...slow, variable signal strength & intermittent internet access. + Positive points...The staff! everyone we talked to were both friendly, knowledgeable, very helpful and helped make our stay really nice. Extra special was Olivier the bartender who was never less than professional and could always recommend places to visit based on what you wanted to see...he was brilliant and just such a nice person.

Comfortable Sleep as Always
By YatesG70
Not what I have some to expect from the IHG group as I was not acknowledged as a IHG gold member on arrival and had to ask about my complementary drink. Bar closes at 11 pm so if you are a late [More] arrival it is not possible to get a drink, I just managed before it closed. Had an early morning meeting and the hotel breakfast does not start until 07:30 so had to rush as the area is heavy with traffic jams in the morning. However saying all the above I would use the hotel again but if only on vacation, not a late arrival or had afternoon meetings. [Less]
Great service
By Henry 789
we always find the service and breakfast at the Carlton to be first rate and consistent given we stay fairly frequently. [Less]

Great hotel with great service
By koala23
The hotel location is very good and convenience to the beach, training station and shopping area. The front desk staff are very nice and very helpful especially Mrs Maria and Mr Victor, they help me [More] a lot during my stay and really appreciated. [Less]
Fantastic few days away
By Muggins27
My wife and I along with some of my family stayed for 4 nights and we had a fantastic break. The front desk staff were so helpful and friendly, the bar and restaurant staff were the same and the help [More] from the porter was just as good. They were knowledgeable on places to visit and how to get there which made our experience even better. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough if you are looking for a break/holiday. We did have an issue with the air conditioning but this was sorted once we had bought it to the hotel's attention. Nice itself was amazing and so was Monaco and Cannes. Thankyou to everyone at the hotel for your service and we will be back next year. [Less]
