Nice city guide

Nice, the capital of the French Riviera

Nice, capital of the French Riviera, is the place to be whether you are an art lover, a shopping addict, night clubber or just fond of the Dolce Vita lifestyle. Nice is a creative, dynamic and cosmopolitan city. The city is a symbol of Mediterranean art of living, with a perpetual invitation to travel and relaxation. Its surroundings also provide various opportunities for cultural discoveries. Nice has an exceptional microclimate, open to the sea and protected from the winds by the surrounding hills.

Dedicate two days in Nice to tour the old city which is the most picturesque area of Nice. Its exceptional baroque architecture, famous flower market, Place Rossetti, trompe-l’œil façades and numerous churches are some of the highlights not to be missed! Make a detour to the Cours Saleya and discover its local products. The French Riviera is a favourite destination for the perfume makers. Take time to visit the small perfume museum in the old town. Later, climb the steps that lead to the magnificent park of the Castle Hill with a stunning view over the old town, the Baie des Anges and the harbour.

Try local specialities like Socca (chickpea pancake) or Pissaladière (anchovy-cream-based tart with a soft layer of onions and olives). Dishes are always accompanied by the rich flavour of Cailletier, a special olive tree typical of Nice. Enjoy the sweet Mediterranean lifestyle by tasting a glass of Vin de Bellet.

Head to Place Massena for a unique shopping experience. Then move to the nearby Golden Square, which is renowned for its luxurious, elegant and refined boutiques.

Customer reviews

  • "Be Flexible"    
    The ride was fairly comfortable but for the same price, we could have travelled by air and save 4 hours of transit. We have accidentally booked a normal ticket and called up almost immediately after the online purchase hoping to pay for the price difference to upgrade to first class. We were told this is not possible as the ticket is restricted. While it makes sense to disallow cancellation on discounted tickets, why not allowing upgrade when clients are happy to pay for the price differences?  
  • "Delay 2 hrs Trip to Marseille"    
    We had been delayed for 2 hours from Paris to Marseille due to bad weather. SNFC compensated us a supplement box which contains some food.  
  • "Long ride to Paris"    
    We enjoyed the push from Nice riding between the sea and mountains and onto wine countryside. However the ride turned out to be too long for us. We ll probably fly when train is longer than 3 hours. TGV was fast and efficient. Food choice was limited. Class 2 upper level sitting was comfy.  
  • "Great train travel!"    
    It was easy to find the seats, the entire ride was extremely comfortable. Recommended!  
  • "thank you"    
    thank you very much for this opporinuty staff was really help full but there could be meal service ( a selection or the menu back of the seats ) instead of us going to the restaurant.  
  • "nice ville station"    
    nice ville station was a total disgrace with no escalators and construction work everywhere. very difficult to find a taxi and then extremely expensive.  
  • "Review"    
    Everything was smooth and efficient.  
  • "Trip to the sunny south"    
    TGV run a very efficient service. The trip in 2nd class was quite comfortable and the company was friendly. The views of the countryside were a bonus. TGV staff passed through the carriage to check tickets, so we were confident that there were no free-loaders.  
  • "tgv"    
    very good fast trip  
  • "Good Experience"    
    Our trip from Paris to Nice was memorable - easy and fuss free and most of all comfortable! It would be good to be given more time to board though because of the crowd and people were pushing and rushing especially those with big suitcases to get on! Way to go to see the countryside.  
  • "Average"    
    My journey from Nice to Paris can be termed as an average experience for the following reasons. 1/ We were two couples who were given different coupes. 2. The coach conductor was very rude. When by mistake we closed the middle berth , he would refuse to open it. He made some racial comments such as asking 'where are you coming from". 3. There were many passengers with no reservation who were standing outside the cabins.  
  • "OK trip"    
    The trip was fine all things considered...I have no complaints about the comfort or ease of an English speaking person there were no problems figuring out trains or times etc....I had read about great scenery but did not find it as inspiring as I had hoped...I have heard you can get a flight for about the same price so if that is true I would consider that as a better option if you have limited time.  
  • "Lovely experience "    
    We really enjoyed our trip from Paris to Nice by TGV.It was comfortable.  
  • "To Sete"    
    A good way to get to Sete but, the food cart ran out before getting to us and the change of trains at Montpellier was not as easy as we expected. However that part of the trip was very short and we got in on time.  
  • "not so luxury"    
    we have travelled on some other TGV. this one was second class. The carriage - business - was old
