Tips and tricks for visiting Nice

A French Riviera Pass gives you free access to all museums and several other attractions and activities. You can opt for a 24-hour pass for €26 EUR, 48-hour pass for €38 EUR or a 72-hour pass for €56 EUR based on your itinerary and duration of stay. If you are visiting in February around Mardi Gras time, enjoy the Nice Carnival where a procession of flowered floats and floral competitions take over the city. It’s usually much cheaper to go out for a meal at lunchtime as restaurants offer good-value plats du jour or two-course menus. Also, order a carafé d’eau (tap water) instead of expensive bottled water. If you are visiting Nice on a strict budget, book a tour with ‘Greeters’ a group of volunteers offering free guided tours around themes such as architecture, food or antiques.
