Information & Facts

Climate

The Mediterranean climate means that Nice boasts warm temperatures for most of the year. For this reason, it’s easy to see why so many people choose holidays to Nice. The summers can be very hot with temperatures regularly hitting 30 degrees during these months. And temperatures remain in their 20s until November when they start to cool and rain becomes more likely.

Eating Out

As with any destination in France, the food in Nice doesn’t disappoint. Each region in the country has a different way of preparing food and it is immediately clear that the Nice way of cooking is heavily influenced by Spanish and Italian traditions. Along the Promenade de Anglais, you can find plenty of restaurants to choose from, with some offering some local specialities and all offering a beautiful sea view. Pizza and pasta is a popular dish around here but sea food is particularly delicious in this area. And of course, no one can resist the plentiful vendors offering ice cream and refreshing sorbet by the sea.

Sightseeing

The quaint streets of the old town in Nice are what attract a lot of people to come on holidays to Nice. The 18th century cobbled streets are lined with restaurants and cafes as well as some attractive little shops.

It’s always essential to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais during any holidays in Nice. In the 18th century, rich English people who spent their winters in Nice proposed a project to beggars in the area; to build a walkway along the sea. And the Promenade des Anglais has proved a popular venture ever since, providing visitors with a pleasant walkway along the stunning sea front. Now, the promenade is always bustling full of visitors trying to catch some sun and locals going for a run as well as street vendors and inviting restaurants.

A lot of visitors love the glitz and glamour of holidays in Nice. But for those who don’t want to spend their days lazing on the beach and taking leisurely lunches there’s plenty of action to keep you entertained including hikes and water sports.

If you’ve got some cash to splash then the shopping in Nice really is second to none. The charming boutiques and the local markets are all packed full of treats from designer gear to unique creations and souvenirs to take home.

As well as being a beautiful holiday destination in itself, Nice offers the perfect base if you want to travel elsewhere. Cannes is only 30 minutes away from your Nice holidays on the train or for something completely different, head for Sospel which is an Alpine village offering some great outdoor activities.

 

Things not to miss:

1. If you’re looking for art, then the Musee d’Art Contemporain is a great place to start. Here you will find a collection of avant garde art including that of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

2. There’s plenty of culture to go around on holidays to Nice and if you’re looking for an interesting way to spend the afternoon, the Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall boasts a fascinating collection of Chagall paintings. These paintings are inspired by biblical stories and are truly fascinating.

3. Nice’s six-domed Russian Orthodox Cathedral is a highlight of the city. The architecture of this building is like no other and looks truly magical from the outside. The Russian aristocracy used Nice as a getaway and they have certainly left their mark on the city with this elegant and unusual building.

4. For the real French market experience, take a wander around the Cours Saleya Flower Market which is a market located in the old city near the beach. The flower market is an absolute treat and one that most visitors on holidays in Nice indulge in. The colour and vibrancy of the market really brings the city alive.

5 As though Nice itself wasn’t relaxing enough, the city is full of spas and wellbeing centres to ensure that you really are spoiled. With plenty of treatments, massages and hammams to go around, you will never want your Nice holidays to come to an end.

6 If you are planning a visit to Le Chateau in Nice, then you need to be sure that you have packed one essential item: your camera.
