Nice is one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. Located on the Mediterranean on the southeast coast of France, Nice has plenty to offer its visitors. Ebookers can help you plan a nice holiday to Nice, from booking flights to finding a hotel for your stay.
Flights to Nice land at Nice Cotes d'Azur International Airport, located five miles southwest of Nice and also serves as the official airport for the principality of Monaco. It is the second most popular airport in France, next to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris.
Visitors have several options regarding transportation. Car-rental stations are located at the airport, and travellers can choose between the services of Avis, Europcar, National and Sixt. If travellers prefer not to navigate the French countryside on their own, airport shuttle services are also available. The public shuttle costs â‚¬14 for up to eight people and is the most economical method to get from the airport to Nice. If travellers prefer more privacy while travelling, private shuttles are available, with rates starting at â‚¬55 for a maximum of three passengers and â‚¬75 for four to six passengers. Public buses are available from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. Buses leave the airport at 30-minute intervals, and the fare is â‚¬4 one way.
Nice enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which makes for year-long warm weather. The warmest month is August, when daytime highs average 28Â°C. The coolest month is January, when daytime highs reach 14 degrees. When planning a visit to Nice, travellers should consider the time of year that they plan to visit. Summer months can top out to 38 degrees, so some looser clothing should be included in the garment bag, just in case. When visiting during the winter months, consider packing a jacket.
If visitors want to view both the Alps and the Mediterranean at the same time, a trip to Castle Hill is in order. This location has been a favourite for artists and photographers for centuries. Travellers who like to walk can take a stroll through Old Town, which is essentially the heart of Nice. Visitors who enjoy museums should put Museo Chagall and the MusÃ©e d'Art et d'Histoire Palais Massena on their itineraries, and for those who want to enjoy the French countryside, the Train des Pignes is a wonderful way to spend a day. Other places of interest in Nice include Phoenix Parc Floral de Nice, Opera de Nice, Place Rossetti, Palais Lascaris and the Basilique Notre Dame de Nice.
