The Nice area guide

Things to do

The stunning city of Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest French city on the Mediterranean coast. Nice is home to roughly 343,700 residents, although the urban area extends well beyond the city limits – pushing the total population up to around 1 million.

The city is known as Nissa la Bella among locals – which translates to ‘Nice the Beautiful’ in English. With a name such as this, it should come as no surprise that the city has a reputation for glamour. Its warm climate and relaxed nature have attracted many rich and famous people over the years, including everyone from Elton John – who owns a villa in the area – to Queen Victoria of England, who spent many winters in the city.

Two of the most attractive features of Nice are undoubtedly its climate and beach – both of which attract thousands of tourists each year during the hot summer months. These two things will no doubt be influencing factors for anyone who decides to relocate here, but they are by no means the only attractions you can enjoy here.

Nice boasts a rich history, wonderful cuisine and a vibrant culture as well. Spend some time wandering the Promenade des Anglais, the main waterfront street which curves almost five miles around the beautiful Bay of Angels. The Promenade is home to a number of restaurants, hotels and historic buildings, and is well worth a visit!

Places to eat

As a popular tourist destination, people looking to relocate to Nice will not be surprised to find a number of great restaurants, cafes and bars awaiting them. In terms of affordability, all bases are covered in Nice. Not only are there a handful of Michelin-starred restaurants for those special occasions, there are also a number of cheap and cheerful places to go for a more reasonably-priced (but still delicious) bite to eat.

Of the more affordable restaurants, Chez Palmyre is a must-visit. This charming restaurant was run by a mother/daughter team since 1926 and changed hands a couple of years ago. It still serves up spades of homely atmosphere and delicious food, and its menu changes on a daily basis. The venue is small, so it pays to book in advance!

Shopping

Shoppers will want for nothing in Nice. The city is home to numerous boutiques, outlets and shopping centres all dedicated to keeping shopaholics happy. Centre Commercial Nice Etoile is a large shopping centre, which boasts brands such as Adidas, The Body Shop, Habitat and more – making it the perfect place to go for everything from fashion to homeware and electronics.

There are also a number of familiar high street fashion labels with stores in Nice, including H&M and Zara, all of which are more than capable of providing shoppers with fashionable clothes at reasonable prices.

If markets are your thing, the Marché aux Fleurs on Cours Saleya is well worth a visit. This amazing flower market has been ranked by France’s National Council for the Culinary Arts as being one of the country’s most special markets. Dozens of stalls are covered in countless beautiful flowers and the sight alone makes it a highly recommended place to go!

Getting there & around

Nice is served by Nice Côte d'Azur Airport, France’s third most important airport after Charles de Gaulle and Orly airport in Paris. Not only is the airport the best way of travelling to Nice from abroad, it also serves as being the gateway to the Principality of Monaco, which lies nearby to Nice. The majority of people looking to relocate to Nice from abroad will most likely find that Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is the best way of going about this.

In the city itself, residents will be able to get from place to place either by tram, bus or their own private car. Nice-Ville station provides residents with access to TGV train services, which are capable of transporting commuters from Nice to Paris in less than six hours.
