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.

Stay at Cannes
By Sanjay Bansal
This was our first time in Cannes. Although the stay was comfortable, the rooms were comparatively smaller in Cannes. The front Desk was helpful and concierge was good. A little far (around 10 min [More] by Bus) from the main attraction area but the bus service is regular and Bus No.1, 2 and palm express are available from the outside of the hotel only. Although we had our vehicle, we prefer to travel with local transport only and really no regrets for that. [Less]

A World of Sheer REFINERY
By Cicciamia
Going to Carlton Cannes has become, to me, a sweet habit, a chance to marvel at what is to be considered an experience in BEAUTY, a moment to enjoy and, if one can, to forget about the ordinary, to [More] concentrate on the EXTRAORDINARY. The city of Cannes wouldn't be the same without C. C. -that' s Carlton Cannes. You eat like a king, sleep like a queen, live like a royal. But, as I have said before, one doesn' t go go C.C.for the sea. I go go Carlton to live it from the inside: to get a good breath of elegance. I even enjoy lying on the bed staring at the ornamental frames on the ceiling, enjoying the light from the very expensive table lamps. I adore the typical Carlton room colours: from white to light beige to yellow beige and the various shades in between: I have even painted some of my furnitures, chairs and small tables these colours. Finally, a word of praise to the gentle, sweet, delicate and very attentive and professional STAFF!!!...SO, BE SEEING YOU, THEN!!! [Less]
Always a pleasure to stay here.

Convenient, Comfortable, Great View
By johnh195956
Very good location. Close enough to the airport for convenient hotel shuttle service, far enough away, no noise from planes. All the staff spoke English, which is great because my French is very [More] poor. The chauffeur Valentino was very nice, professional and helpful. Julie and Vanessa at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, cheerfully helping me with all my requests. The night bartender , forgot his name, was very accommodating. The bed was very comfortable. USB outlets at the desk, without needing an AC adapter. Lighting was very convenient, all lights switchable from the bed. The view from my balcony was fantastic and though I need to quit, I could smoke on the balcony without having to go downstairs and outside. The breakfast was first class, something for everyone, great way to start the day. My only complaint is that I had to leave. [Less]
Excellent stay at Holiday Inn St Laurent Nice
By Ashish
Nice and comfortable hotel. The beach is close by and there are a number of great restaurants in the vicinity. The staff are friendly, special recommendation for Kaloyana at the front desk in the [More] evenings, she is friendly, warm and helpful. [Less]
