The Nice area guide
Sights and attractions
The southern French city of Nice has long been a popular hangout of the rich and famous. With a fabulous Mediterranean climate and spades of glitz and glamour, those looking to get a slice of the high life for themselves will no doubt find Nice to be an attractive relocation destination. Nice is currently the fifth largest city in France in terms of population and is home to more than 343,000 people – and around 1 million when you include the entire urban area of the city – which expands well beyond the city limits.
Called Nissa la Bella by those that live there – which means ‘Nice the Beautiful’ in English – this glamorous city has attracted the likes of everyone from superstar Elton John to Queen Victoria of England to its stunning streets.
Members of the glitterati are not the only people that are attracted to Nice’s warm climate, delicious cuisine and buzzing culture. Scores of tourists make their way down from all over Europe and further abroad each year to make the most of what this great city has to offer. Those looking to call Nice home should, therefore, prepare themselves for a large influx of tourists over the hot summer months.
Restaurants and cafes
Considering the fact that Nice is so popular with visitors from abroad, it would seem only natural that the city is home to a number of brilliant restaurants, cafes and bars – all of which serve the purpose of keeping locals and tourists full to the brim with great food and drink.
Those with more discerning tastes will be delighted to hear that there are a number of five-star establishments in Nice, as well as a handful of places that have earned the coveted Michelin star rating as well. One restaurant that definitely warrants a visit is L’Aromate. This charming restaurant is run by a couple who thrive on fine dining experiences and has been awarded one Michelin star for their impeccable offerings.
Those looking to deck themselves out in the latest fashions will find no shortage of designer boutiques and stores awaiting them in Nice. Obviously in a city that is so popular among the rich and famous, Nice is home to a number of high-end fashion outlets, including brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Tiffany & Co.
Markets are another thing that Nice does well. The Marché aux Fleurs on Cours Saleya has been named by the French National Council of Culinary Arts as being one of the most special markets in the whole country. As you will have probably guessed from the name, this market specialises in flowers, and the stalls that make up this bustling centre of local commerce are decked out in all manner of geraniums, fuchsias, dahlias and more. The market runs throughout the week, except on Mondays and Sunday afternoons – the mere sight of the flower covered stalls are reason enough to pay the market a visit!
For getting about the city on a daily basis, residents will be able to make the most of an extensive and reliable public transport network. Trams and buses run throughout the city on a regular basis and will greatly reduce your dependence on your own car. However, if you truly want to get into the spirit of living in Nice, purchasing a scooter of your own would not be a bad idea!
In terms of travelling to the city from abroad, Nice Côte d'Azur Airport will most likely be the most convenient way of getting there. Regular flights arrive here every day from Europe and the rest of the world, and you will also find that it serves as the gateway to the Principality of Monaco. For those weekend jaunts north to Paris, high-speed TGV trains can be boarded at Nice-Ville station, and will transport you to the city of lights in less than six hours.
