The Nice center is about the area of Place Massena and the area of Basilique Notre Dame.

Nice, located on the Mediterranean Sea, is the second most visited city in France just after Paris. Visitors of Nice can enjoy many shopping centers, parks, and historical sites. Realistically, however, most people visit the fifth largest city in France for the beautiful views and beaches. Although it might not be considered as ritzy as Cannes or as trendy as St. Tropez, Nice is still an attractive and stunning place to vacation for both the French and for visiting tourists.

"Full of nice restaurants"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 11-Nov-2013
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

It is a beautiful city by the Mediterranean, full of nice restaurants (Cafe de Turin for sea food, Restaurant Du Gesu for authentic Nicoise cuisine). Beautiful old town with nice antique market and flower markets on Sundays. 30 mn from Monaco or Cannes, 1h away from few ski resorts and Italy. Nice little charming hotels like Hotel Le Grimaldi. I highly recommend this destination outside the really busy summer season, September or June are perfect time to enjoy the sunshine without the crowd. And of course May if good if you want to go to Cannes movie festival or watch the Formula 1 Grand prix in Monaco.

What makes Nice unique is the Italian influence. Nice was originally a part of Italy, but it was used as payment in 1860 to France. Because of its former union with Italy, there is a rich blend of both French and Italian culture in this dynamic city. The rock beaches in Nice also sets this city apart from other coastal havens. The smooth stones are naturally occurring and add an interesting and beautiful attraction to the already beautiful Mediterranean Sea. Visitors can enjoy the beaches walking on the promenade or head up to Castle Hill to get a view of the entire city.

Best Times to Visit Nice, France

With sunshine all year, it's no surprise that Nice is such a popular tourist destination. May through August is a particularly attractive time to visit Nice, most likely because of summer vacation for families. This is not necessarily an ideal time because it is also a crowded and hot time of the year in Nice. Prices tend to hike during May to August as well, making it a less desirable time to visit if your schedule accommodates a different time of year.

If you want to visit Nice when there's less of a crowd, but still sunshine, book a vacation during the early fall. It's still possible to get some sunshine, but you won't have to navigate the crowds and pay the high fares, and you will have a more enjoyable time seeing all the sights without the throngs of tourists in the way.

The early spring is similar in temperature, pricing, and crowds. Winter is also a nice time to visit Nice if you want to see the sights, and although hotel prices and airfares tend to be cheaper, it's a little too chilly to head to the beach this time of year.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Nice, France:

Luxury Hotel Options in Nice, France

4 Star Average Prices: $158.93

The French are no strangers to luxury, and Nice offers plenty of lavish hotels if that's your market. Consider staying at the Grand Hotel du Cap Farret, a Four Seasons Hotel, if you want to spend your trip to Nice in style. The Grand Hotel du Cap Farret, on the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Peninsula, is another option. This hotel is filled with rich and vibrant history. Temporarily a hospital during World War One with much other history over time, this hotel was refurbished in 2009. Guests enjoy the pool with views, the spa, and onsite dining.

Located near all of Nice's best attractions, the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranee is made for the luxurious traveler. Overlooking the Bay of Angels, the Hyatt Regency offers a gourmet restaurant, spacious rooms with terraces, and nine available suites. Guests can also enjoy the indoor and outdoor pool at the hotel. You can also visit the Turkish bath and the on-site luxury spa.

Located between Nice and Monaco, the Hotel Royal Riviera provides the both of best worlds. These upgraded rooms are a great place to relax after enjoying the African-inspired bar and terrace. Guests can enjoy the heated outdoor pool, the private beaches, and the spa and wellness center. Guests who want luxury, but want to be outside the city, can find everything they are looking for at the Hotel Royal Riviera.

Affordable Options in Nice, France

3 Star Average Prices: $89.91

In the off-season, many hotels have reduced rates that make Nice a desirable place. If you want to go to Nice during prime beach season, you will have to look a little harder for affordable rates without sacrificing quality. Luckily the Hotel Villa Azur, Garden Beach Hotel, and Park Inn Nice Airport all fulfill those assets.

The Hotel Villa Azur is steps away from the beach, but still maintains a relatively affordable price. The Villa Azur offers stunning views of the French Riviera, a variety of room options, and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The Garden Beach Hotel is another affordable option in Nice. This hotel offers beach views and a pier for sunbathing or enjoying the view. This Art Deco-inspired hotel is also within walking distance of the art museum Musee Picasso as well as other local sites. This hotel boasts options for both business and leisure travels and is only a short drive to the airport.

Although a beach location is most desired, some prefer to stay closer to the airport. The Park Inn Nice Airport offers an affordable hotel, with plenty of amenities, seconds away from the airport. This hotel, operated by Radisson, offers a seasonal pool, an onsite sauna and hot tub, and a fitness center. The Park Inn also has two on-site restaurants and is walking distance to local transportation.

Nice: Real Discounts

If you're military, a AAA member, or a senior citizen, there are plenty of options in Nice to take advantage of those discounts. The Hotel Univers Downtown offers discounts and is an affordable option to put you right in the center of Nice. The Holiday Inn in Nice also offers discounts while staying within your budget. The Holiday Inn is a four-star hotel located downtown at an affordable price.

Located on the Promenade, Le Meridien Nice also offers discounts and is an option for travelers with a slightly bigger budget. The Meridien offers beautiful views of the sea, with some rooms offering balconies and terraces. This hotel also offers 17 suites for its guests who want more spacious accommodations.

Best Value Options in Nice, France

If you're visiting Nice on a tight budget, there are still hotel options available to fit within any range. The Hotel Le Lys is a budget-friendly hotel with an excellent location near the beach. Although the rooms tend to be on the small side, you receive proper accommodations for the price of the room. Plus you can't beat the location by the beach. The Hotel Alexandra is also a quaint but affordable hotel in Nice that allows pets and offers Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

The Hotel des Cayrons also is a more friendly option for the budget-conscious traveler. The rooms tend to be a little small, and the decorations may not suit everyone, this hotel offers a pool for its guests, and has a welcoming feel, which you won't get at the larger chain hotels. This hotel offers both private rooms with double beds and shared rooms for larger families depending on your budget.

Why Nice, France Should Not Be Overlooked

Whether this is your first time in France, or you travel to the south of France often, Nice should be on your list of places to visit. Although some may say that Nice is not as exciting as Monaco, or as glitzy as Cannes, Nice is a romantic city and offers aspects that other southern French cities lack. You can enjoy the Italian influence and food without having to go to Italy, and get the best of both worlds with French and Italian influences in this historical city.

Nice is known for a lot of things, but being on the budget-friendly side is not necessarily one of them. That doesn't mean that you can't visit Nice affordably; however, you don't want to experience sticker shock when you arrive in this coastal city. If you are visiting on a budget and the location of your hotel matters, you may have to sacrifice space and amenities of your hotel. If you don't mind taking transportation to the beach, you have much more options of hotels with the top amenities still within a reasonable budget.

If you've been saving up for an anniversary of the vacation of a lifetime and budget is not an issue, there are plenty of luxurious options and opportunities in Nice to make you feel lavishly pampered. You can spend your days sightseeing in Nice, enjoying a day at the spa, or renting a boat and going out on the sea. If you're a scuba diver, then there are also plenty of diving companies who will be happy to take you under the sea as well.

There's much more to southern France than drinking wine, and Nice exemplifies all the things you can experience in this pretty city. Whether you're visiting France to party, you want rich history, or you just want to relax and enjoy the sunshine, there is a hotel that will fit your needs and plenty of direct flights from all over the world to take you there. Instead of battling the crowds in Paris, consider Nice for your next vacation. You'll be glad you did.

Nice, France summarized

It's hard to believe that French beauty can go beyond that of Paris' esplanades and chateaus, but visiting Nice, the country's 5th most populous city, can effortlessly prove otherwise. The Addressed as Nice la Belle, which directly translates to Nice the Beautiful, the city off the Mediterranean coast is every bit worthy of the name. Nice is considered to be one of Europe's earliest settlement areas, with archeological sites at Terra Amata displaying the most primitive use of fire. Named after the goddess of victory, Nice's views of the Promenade des Anglais, the paintings at Musee Marc Chagall, and the Place Massenia win more than 4 million tourists a year. France's second top tourist destination is primarily a vacation resort. Festivals further lure tourists from Paris in time for the Nice Jazz Festival and the wild Carnaval de Nice. An excursion into the French Riviera, bathed with interesting museums, lovely oceanfront promenade, and captivating beaches is truly the tourist's benefit from the doubt.

"Meetings in Nice"
Score 5.0 / 5

Nice has the 3rd largest airport capacity after two in Paris and you cannot get a better scenery with most of the conference venues facing the sea. Easy access to Cannes and Monaco by road and of course the best of the French cuisine with his Mediterranean touch.
