4 Nights / 5 days in Nice....not a clue what to do..

Hi Guys,

As you can see, I'm off to Nice for 5 days in late June with the gf. We'll be there for 5 days and would be interested in hearing from

anyone with ideas about things to do. I was told that Cannes is a must visit and that 5 days might be too much?

Any help would be appreciated.

Helo, rather than relying on contributors to this website, you would do better to get yourself a good guidebook to the Cote D'Azur, including Nice. W H Smith or any decent bookshop should have one, or you can borrow one free from your local public library. The Lonely Planet and Rough guides are particularly good, and tell you lots of things to see and do, recommended restaurants and how to get about.

The "must see and do" things in Nice are:

The daily morning market in the Cours Saleya.

Wandering through the narrow streets of the Old Town.

Strolling and people watching along the Promenade des Anglais.

Enjoying the local Niçoise cuisine.

Other options are:

A walk around the Old Port.

Visiting one of the many excellent museums and art galleries - the Musée Matisse, the Gallery of Contemporary Art, the Chagall Art Gallery or the Musée de Beaux Artes.

A leisurely walk along the Basse Corniche to Villefranche-sur-Mer.

A day trip by train to Cannes or Antibes.

A bus trip to St Paule-de-Vence.

Bonnes Vacances!

Who keeps telling these people that a few days in Nice is too much???????

You could be here a year and still not see or do everything you wanted to!

Go east but forget going west at this time of the year. Cannes promises much but delivers little and the journey there is boring. Alternatively, all points east are fab. You most def. have to go to Monaco for the day, train or bus, it's up to you, but Nice really does have so much to offer that for a 5 day break I'd stay local (except Monaco).

I agree with ZebFrance, skip Cannes, but go to Antibes that really desserves a visit.
