Is Nice worth visiting?

Why anytime is the perfect time to visit Nice

Nice is one of the jewels of the French Riviera. For many years a playground of the rich and famous, this beautiful city has featured in books, TV and film. More importantly, there’s never a wrong time to visit and enjoy the many pleasures of Nice either alone or with family.

It’s always warm

Or virtually always. T-shirts and shorts can generally be worn from the end of February because Nice enjoys a fabulous 300 days of sunshine a year. Whether you prefer the peace and quiet of spring and autumn, the hustle and bustle of high season or the magical atmosphere of Nice in the winter time, there’s never a bad time to rent holiday apartments in Nice – hop on a plane and recharge your batteries with a short break.

You won’t need a car

With the Velo Bleu bike hire scheme and the ultra cheap bus and tram network, you can explore Nice and the surrounding area as far as Monaco for just a euro a trip. Enjoy the scented delights of the perfume town of Grasse or visit charming hilltop villages like St Paul de Vence and Eze. If you prefer sandy beaches to the pebbly ones of Nice, then a bike or bus ride to Antibes should be top of your list.

You can time travel

Perhaps not literally, but no trip to Nice is complete without spending time in the Vieux Ville or Old Town. This area of Nice just oozes charm and character and delivers a true sense of a Nicoise culture that hasn’t fundamentally changed in centuries. Head to the Old Town at any time for a taste of Socca (chick pea pancakes) and pissaladiere, a kind of Nicoise pizza, specialities made in the traditional way today as they always have been.

You might be rubbing shoulders with a star

Nice and the French Riviera are a honeypot for celebrities, film stars, musicians and even Bill Gates who has a huge mansion just outside town. Elton John and Keith Richards have been fans of the Riviera landscape and laid back lifestyle for years, so who knows who you might meet when you’re buying your morning baguette?
