Nice is France’s Mediterranean paradise with soft light to inspire artists and photographers alike, amazing food to satisfy the most discerning foodie, and sights and sounds that will keep you occupied morning-noon-and-night!
Here is just a small sampling of what you can do in this amazing city by the sea.
See: It is no wonder that Nice is called Nice la Belle (Nice the Beautiful) because it is absolutely gorgeous year-round allowing any visitor the opportunity to explore every corner without worry of bad weather getting in your way. If you visit nowhere else, you must take a stroll on the Promenade des Anglais that runs the length of the seafront where you will find beaches, cafes, and lovely places to stop and take in the world. If you need to get out of the sun for a bit there are several museums to take-in including the amazing Matisse Museum, the Chagall Museum as well as the Nice Archaeology Museum and Roman Ruins, where you can see the ruins of a Roman arena and bathhouses.
Shop: Strolling along the Promendade des Anglais will lead you to two places that are also must-see. One is the Cours Saleya, a fantastic market where you can see and buy amazing foods, flowers and on certain days antiques. The other is the Place Massena where and is considered Nice's main commercial street, not only will you find plenty of shopping but you can also take in the neoclassical arcaded architecture which are great photo opportunities.
Eat: Oh where to start?! There are many amazing restaurants but the best thing to do is two take advantage of Nice’s Oceanside location and Mediterranean life-style to enjoy amazing seafood and Italian inspired menus. Some of my favorites are Boni (15 rue Tonduti de l'Escarène); Le Savanna (6 passage Emile Negrin); Au Petit Gari (2 Place Garibaldi - 66 bd Rosso); and La Gauloise Brasserie (28 ave Malaussena). Besides where to eat there is what. Don’t forget to try out these local specialties: Socca (a rustic chickpea-flour crepe); Nicoise salad; Pissaladiere (an oven-baked focaccia topped with caramelized onions, black Nicoise olives, and anchovies); farcis niçois (tiny stuffed vegetables); and sardines.
Drink: While in the warm south of France you must partake of chilled French rosé.And besides any of the lovely terraces you can find along the water, here are three fun bars to check out, each with their own personalities: Asian-themed L’Odace (29 Rue Alphonse Karr); hip, seaside club La Suite (2 Rue Bréa) and black-white-and-red sophisticated Le Ghost (3, rue Barillerie).
Stay: There are tons of hotel options for visiting Nice. On the luxury side there is the Palais De La Mediterranee Hotel Nice, Fairmont Hotel Monte Carlo, Hotel Beau Rivage Nice and the Chateau Saint Martin & Spa Vence. In an intermediate price rage you will find the Radisson Blu Hotel Nice, Le Meridien Hotel Nice, Le Meridien Beach Plaza Hotel Monte Carlo and Hotel Le Grimaldi Nice. For those more budget conscious there are still many choices including Mercure Nice Marche Fleurs, Hostel Villa Saint Exupéry Gardens and Ibis Nice Centre Notre Dame. They won’t break your wallet and they are very well situated.
Walk: Besides the lovely Promenade des Anglais the must-do walk when visiting Nice is to climb the steps of the Colline (hill) du Château to “Le Chateau" which rests on a summit that offers an amazing view of the Baie des Anges, Old Nice, and the Port, which are some of the most photographed panoramic viewpoints in France. There are idyllic paths in the shade of the trees, great views and a large grassy park with Roman ruins and a waterfall.
Get Out: There are multiple ways to get out and about and away from the city center. To discover the area around Nice why not try a bicycle tour of the French Riviera; hop on a Vespa where you can experience a guided scooter tour that even takes you into Monte Carlo; or jump onto the “21st century human transporter” and tour around Nice on a Segway!
Listen: No matter what your musical taste you can find something to please the ears while visiting Nice. The Nice Opera house offers many options fro operas (of course) to concerts with the philharmonic orchestra. If that is too classic for you visit during the Nice Jazz Festival and get your groove on with the amazing artists and shows that happen every single year. For an amazing festival with all types of music check out the Nice Manca Music Festival every year in November.
Avoid: Taxis are super expensive so your are better off with a cheap car rental, even if you don’t use the car the entire trip, you will still end up on top because taxi fares in Nice are outrageous! Another reason you will want to rent a car is that the TAM buses may seem cheap, but they are a total hassle especially when traveling between Nice and Cannes.But, if you do take the bus, and you are in Nice and want to go out of town, my advice to you would be to take the bus directly at the bus station in Nice or Cannes, because along the way, it can be nearly impossible to get on the bus because it is generally already full and you may see several pass you by before there is one with space for you!
