GO OUT

Nice is the 5th city of France, so you can expect to find whatever you are looking for, from culture to leisure! Lots of beaches are public (free) ones, with either sand or pebbles..
You will find all sorts of restaurants, caffes and snacks around town, serving from a sandwich (2 €) to sophisticated haute cuisine.
Nice is a very lively city at night, with casinos, discotheques, restaurants and caffes open all night long, during the summer or even in the winter (because of the 10,000 university students present in the city).
One of the main event is of course the Carnaval in February.

 

Nice is a land of creation, innovation, research and cultural exchange and not just a land of tourism and leisure.

There is no doubt whatsoever about the success of Nice as a first class resort throughout the world. One may ask the reasons for such renown. Is it the mildness of the climate that is condsidered to be sub-tropical? Or is it the diversity of the landscapes, the richness of the flora, the beauty of the great Mediterranean Sea? In fact, everything is accentuated in Nice, the light is so bright that the colors are flashing. The pines are green and happily rubbing shoulders with the blue shades of the Mediterranean Sea and sky. The sun highlights the yellow hue of the flowers, and the ochre sides of the homes, in a natural setting of rocks and hills. It is indeed easy to understand the fascination exerted by the Côte d'Azur on those artists, painters, writers, sculptors and musicians who contributed to her fame and to whom the museums of Nice have paid a deserved tribute.

If the Carnival of Nice has been for a long time the major tourist event of Nice, now, there are numerous international events which are giving a rhythm to the life of the town, such as the Nice Jazz Festival, without mentioning the sportive meetings - Nikaïa, Triathlon, Semi-Marathon. In the same time, the cultural aspects are generating an intense artistic life.If the Carnival of Nice has been for a long time the major tourist event of Nice, now, there are numerous international events which are giving a rhythm to the life of the town, such as the Nice Jazz Festival, without mentioning the sportive meetings - Nikaïa, Triathlon, Semi-Marathon.
