Our Top Picks in Nice

We want you to enjoy the best that Nice has to offer and so here's a selection of our favourite things to see and do;

Old Town

Nice’s Old Town is a more laid back area of the city, ideal for wandering around and simply enjoying the atmosphere. And depending on how you feel about sea-food, fresh fruit, vegetables and cheese – not to mention just about every flower you can think of – you’ll be able to spend a good few hours exploring the dazzlingly colourful market area of the Old Town. We say get up early to enjoy the full effect!

The Beach

The quintessential Nice experience is the beach. The perfect place to relax and watch the locals and tourists go about their business of having fun, sip a cocktail and watch the sun settle. If you’re keen to sidestep the sometimes hefty price tags of some of the beach-side eateries, opt for the Club Sandwich – usually quite affordable. And don’t forget – this beach is comprised of pebbles, so make sure you’ve got some hardy flip flops or sandals or you may have sore feet. We think you’ll love Nice’s beach life!

Fenocchios Ice Cream

It’s blisteringly hot. You’re in Nice. What could be better than an ice cream to cool you down? But Fenocchios ice cream parlour delivers some less common flavours for you to sample – give Chilli Chocolate, Tomato and Basil, Jasmine and Avocado – and even Beer flavour – a try.
