Top 10 things to do in Nice

Our guide to the top 10 things to do while in Nice will help you organise and orientate yourself on France’s dazzling Cote D-Azur.

Top 10 things to do in Nice

1. Scuba Diving

Explore the underwater world of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and enjoy the spectacular sights of the Marine life off the Nice coast. Villa Saint Exupery hostel organises trips twice a day!

2. Sailing

Have great day sailing on the French Riviera! Enjoy cruising around exclusive bays, sight seeing, snorkelling, and swimming. Sun bath on the deck and take a picnic to eat on board. Be back in time for dinner and drinks in Nice’s Old Town! Sailing trips are also organised by Villa Saint Exupery.


3. Cap d’Ail – Plage Mala Beach

A 10 min train ride takes you to our favourite beach! Spend the afternoon on one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast. Set in a cove with cliffs above it and a little bar on the beach – it’s pure heaven!

4. Day trip to Monaco – Monte Carlo

Monaco is just 30 mins –  and a 1,50€ bus ride – away from Nice. Experience the luxurious lifestyle at famous Monte Carlo Casino, but you might not want to gamble much there. Check out the super yachts in the harbour, visit the Princes Palace, and the Oceanographic Museum.

5. Day trip to Cannes & the Lerins Islands

Cannes is also just 30 mins away from Nice by train! Famous for the Cannes Film Festival, it’s also home to 7 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, and many designer boutiques. Take a boat out to the islands & explore the deserted bays & pristine beaches. Boats leave every 30 mins from the old port.

6. Day trip to Antibes

Antibes is a lovely Medieval town 20 mins away from Nice by train. Pablo Picasso even lived here for a short time! Check out the Picasso Museum, the ancient sea walls, the Marché Provençal, and of course, the great, sandy beaches.

7. Day trip to Villefranche

Only 10 mins from Nice – Villefranche is a stunning former Italian fishing village with a great beach, set in a bay surrounded by fishing and sailing boats. The knowledgeable staff at Villa Saint Exupery Beach Hostel can help you get there!

8. Day trip to Eze Village

Eze is a spectacular medieval village on the hill en route to Monaco. Its panoramic view is one you won’t want to miss!

9. Canyoning

Get your adrenalin pumping with a day of canyoning in the mountains behind Nice. Trek down beautiful fresh mountain rivers, abseiling waterfalls, and jump off cliffs into pristine fresh mountain water pools!

10. Get the Riviera City Pass

This pass is available in 1, 2, or 3 days and gives access to the payed sites and attractions in Nice and the surrounding areas. It’s a great way to maximise your visit and save some money in the process.
