If you like your getaways decadent but well-dressed, a little scandalous but always chic, you’ve met your holiday match: Nice, France. In the most popular city on the Riviera, almost anything goes, as long as you keep it classy. Check out our Nice packages and get ready to say “ooh la la”!
There’s something about the cobalt Mediterranean waves and the rows of matching blue beach chairs that just makes the sun on a holiday in Nice seem brighter. Even if that’s all in your head, the relaxation definitely isn’t. You really can’t go wrong no matter where you plant your umbrella, but here are a few tips: Florida Beach is the place to be for nightlife (and daylife!), while the views from Coco Beach are sure to up your profile pic game. Need total silence after a wild night? You’ll find seclusion on Castel Beach.
When you’re beach-ed out, take a walk (or bike, rollerblade or jog) on the famous Promenade des Anglais, or better yet, hit the museums. Try the (free!) Musee Matisse on the north side of town to see one of the largest collections of his work. For even more art, check out our Barcelona holiday packages , too. It’s just an hour’s flight south and an easy add-on for your European getaway.
With Nice holiday packages near Vieille Ville (say that ten times fast—or just say “Old Town”), you’ll be in the right place for some of the city’s best browsing: the Cours Saleya. Rows and rows of striped tents offer fresh-cut flowers, produce, souvenirs and postcard-perfect photo ops. Prefer souvenirs you can wear? The stores of Avenue Jean Medecin will satisfy any fashionista.
If you’re on the Promenade des Anglais when your tummy starts grumbling, look up! No, we’re not trying to trick you. This area’s got restaurants where you can eat with a view—just make sure your wallet is prepared. To fill your belly without emptying your bank account, head downtown near the Gare de Nice-Ville train station for local specialities like daube (wine-based beef stew) and local roasted lamb. For a little culinary exploration, take one of lastminute.com.au’s Nice car hire deals 20 km east to Peillon and dine at the foothills of the Alps—now that’s what we call a lunch date!
Make sure you fuel up, because your Nice holiday has the best nightlife on the Riviera. Start your evening with une degustation (that’s a wine tasting, but everything sounds fancy in French) at the cellars in Old Town. Vin de Bellet is grown right in the hills behind the city. Then it’s time to take it up a notch: Back to the Promenade des Anglais you go! (Seeing a pattern here?) Put on those heels, shorten that skirt and spike that hair. It’s going to be one of those nights.
You deserve a little sugar, spice and everything “nice”. It’s time to get booking! Mix and match airfares and accommodation to create a Nice package that’s almost as beautiful as the Mediterranean coastline.
With an awesome range of Nice hotels available, finding the right one will be easy. At the mo, there are 227 accommodations listed on lastminute.com.au.
You don't have to break the bank to have a good night's rest in Nice. The Aparthotel Adagio Nice Promenade des Anglais, located at 179 Promenade Des Anglais, and the Les Suites Massena, found at 4 Place Massena, are both relaxing and cheap as chips. But if you'd rather live like a king or queen while you're here, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel or the Hotel Royal Riviera may be more to your liking. Just sit back, unwind and let the experienced staff do their thing.
