Is Nice a safe city?

Nice, France is widely referred to as the most beautiful city on the French Riviera, with its lovely beaches, sparkling water, and historic structures. Like other popular French cities, Nice is known for a low percentage of violent crime however it is still advised to exercise due caution regarding your and your friends and family’s safety. Since Nice is a large city, small crimes are inevitable. Pickpockets have a middling chance of catching you off guard. Always keep your belongings within your sight and do not trust any stranger with your valuables. While walking at night, be extra careful. But fear not, due to the increased presence of French police in public locations, you need not worry about your safety and security so much. You will be free to meander and roam the beautiful streets of Nice without any hesitation.

Is Nice expensive?

If you are travelling on a budget, planning your  expenses before you travel will be critical. Tourists should be aware, however, that the cost of lodging in Nice is dependent on their preferences. If you're on a limited budget, I recommend avoiding eating out in the more touristy neighbourhoods. In France, beer is never cheap, but wine is. There are a few chain supermarkets here and there that sell water bottles and other basics at more reasonable costs. By strategically planning your stay, you can have a wonderful vacation at the warmest of the cities. There are obviously some opulent locations to stay, eat, and shop in Nice, but there are considerably more affordable options which are particularly outside of the main tourist sites.

Is Nice good?

On the Promenade des Anglais, the Hotel Negresco is over a century old. It's an iconic edifice with a pastel-pink domed roof that you can't miss. Your mornings can be spent exploring bustling food markets, afternoons can be spent ascending to hilltop peaks, and evenings can be spent at coastal pubs and bistros. Housing one of Nice’s most unique structures, The St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral  promises to take your breath away. If you're looking for adventure, the Mediterranean offers great hiking trails, cycling, and watersports.
