Are you landing in nice or villefranche? many cruise itineraries say Nice but actually put into villefranche.

Cafes restraunts etc will be open -shops -most shops shut but souvenir type shops in old town may be open

public transport is limited - some trains, some longer distance buses but local buses and trams are off .

Hop on hop off bus is on and there is always a giant may day festival in the olive groves and Roman amphitheatre at Cimiez with traditional music, dance etc [its a stop on the hop on hop off bus tour]

or in the morning you may want to join the union demonstrations in Nice - bring your own red flag and bullhorn. Party atmosphere, sing along to Bob Marley "Get up, Stand up", and join in with the protestors...turn the clock back to the 1960's

I'm sort of joking. As Selkie says, public transport will virtually disappear, as the bus and train drivers are solid behind the red flag on Labour Day.

If as suspected your boat drops anchor in the Bay of Villefranche , its a great place for a wander and enjoy the brasseries or restaurants.It will be business as usual.

1st may is the biggest public holiday of the year - clothes shops are almost certianly shut unless they are in the old town

Hop on hop off bus stops at port in nice but not villefranche .You could take a train from villefranche to nice or walk- beautiful views , [takes about an hour port to port] or you could take a taxi
