Nice Jazz Festival Parking

Hi, does anyone know the best place to park a car as near as possible to the Jazz Festival? it will have to be 24hrs as it'll be finishing late, and as close as possible as i don't fancy wandering around in the middle of the night.

Thanks a lot to anyone who can help.

We were at the Lu Festin at Cimiez the other weekend and the French all seemed happy parking along the Avenue de Arenas de Cimiez (past the archeological museum). There were a fair amount of people and, (as you have great difficulty in persuading many Frenchmen to walk uphill for a mile from the centre of Nice) many cars. BTW Nice is generally perfectly safe to walk around in late.

Unfortunately I will be back in Canada by then - too bad as I'm sure it would be fabulous. Thanks for the info.

There are some bars in Nice that have jazz music regularly or even every night -so maybe you will manage to catch some music even if you can't make the jazz festival

The streets around the festival site are always packed with cars. You may be better to park in a car park in town, then use the free buses to get there and back. We've caught the bus many times after the last band has finished playing.
