Area to stay in Nice - Baumette?

We are staying in Nice in May the week following the Grand Prix, hotels seem very expensive so we are going for an apartment. I have found one in the area of Baumettes, we don't mind a walk into town on the evening but can anyone tell me if the walk into town is safe from here. The quiet are appeals to us in the day. How far is it from the port as we arrive after a cruise.

Nice is a safe place, with low crime rates. Pickpocketing is something to be aware of , but is not a huge issue here by comparison with other places but would be rotten if it happened . So look after your belongings, especially in crowds. wallets in back pockets are a no no. Howeever, there is zero violence or confrontation

The two supposedly dodgy areas, and by UK standards very tame , are on the extreme edges of Nice and would be difficult to get to by accident.

Les Baumettes is a sought after residential area with high rents and house prices

its about 4km from Nice port - but there are masses of buses -number 9 and 10

However, make sure your cruise really terminates in Nice, Some end up in the neighbouring town of Villefranche [take train and then bus number 12 from Nice ville station]
