Visit Nice in 1 Day or 2 Days?

Still confused about visiting Nice for 1 day or 2 days? You can’t miss one of the must-see places in Nice, French Riviera.

Visiting Nice in 1 day: the must-see sites

With this itinerary, which will take you a full day, you will not miss any of the must-see sites in Nice. The map below will allow you to visualize the route on foot. If you want to enjoy the beach you will have to extend the stay 🙂

Visiting Nice in 2 days

Two days in Nice allow you to have a good overview of the city. For the first day, resume the previous program Visit Nice in 1 day which goes around the sites not to be missed. During the second day you can share your day between beach and museums.

For those who like to walk you can explore the east of the city. Here is a nice little route to Mont Boron but which requires a minimum of physical condition because there are quite a few steps to climb (2.2 km and 30 min on foot). If you don’t feel like going on foot, you can do it by electric bike.

From left to right and from top to bottom (in Nice): the port, a view from the castle hill, the Ferris wheel, the Promenade du Paillon, a school near the business district, a house in Cours Saleya, a shopping avenue, a view from Mont-Boron. Aeris06, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons

Where to eat Nice specialties

You cannot visit Nice without tasting the cuisine of Nice. The specialties of Nice are numerous and for the most part known throughout the world. Unfortunately, the further you get from Nice, the more the recipes become eccentric. Here are the most famous dishes of Nice gastronomy:

Nissarde Cuisine Label

This label was created to defend and promote authentic, homemade Niçoise cuisine. It is awarded to restaurateurs who work to promote the cuisine of Nice by committing to respecting the recipes, the quality of the products and the raw materials used.

If you want to taste real Nice cuisine, I invite you to eat in a restaurant with the “Cuisine Nissarde” label, this will allow you to avoid tourist traps. In Nice there are 15 restaurants that you will find in this list. For my part, I recommend Acchiardo and Lu Fran Calin in Vieux-Nice and La Ratapignata in Nice-Nord. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed.

What to do around Nice

There are so many towns and villages to see around Nice that it would take more than a week to visit them all. I will therefore present the main tourist sites and especially those that are easily accessible without a car. For your trips, I advise you to use the TER. The Grasse – Cannes – Ventimiglia line passes through all the seaside villages of the Côte d’Azur. It is also an excellent solution to go to the beaches around Nice (in July August it is hell to find a parking space).
