Additional Location Information
Location is absolutely fantastic, as you are on the high-street, 5 min walk to the beach, local markets and restaurants, cafes, cinemas, shopping and all tourist attractions...
You are minutes walk to Fnac, Virgin, Zara, Monoprix (big supermarket open 7 days a week), Nice Etoile (big commercial centre with many shops, pharmacies etc). You are 1 min walk to Place Massena which is Nice’s geographic centre- an attractive square surrounded by shops and restaurants which are concentrated along the Rue Messina, a pedestrian only zone. It is the stage for the festivities during le Carnaval de Nice, Jazz Festival, and many other events. A cluster of rich, red colored buildings (date from 1850 and mix the arcades of rue de Rivoli in Paris with Italianate architecture) mark the spot- it's hard to overlook them! The most distinguishing feature is the rose coloured façades of the encircling buildings.
There is a Galleries Lafayette shopping mall here but we haven't made it in there yet. Although we enjoy the one in Paris I can't imagine this one would be anything to write home about. There are some high end shopping just a few blocks from the square.
Furthermore, the square is just a short walking distance from attractions like Jardin Albert I, Opera de Nice and, a little further away, the Cathedral of Sainte Reparate. As a plus, visitors can simply hand around and relax while exploring the shopping opportunities or the restaurants in Place Massena.
Private secure parking available upon request for an additional 35 EUR, please ask about this when booking accommodation so that we are made aware you need one.
There is a tram that runs through the middle. We have yet to ride a tram here as we enjoy walking more and it's not too far. Place Massena is a good central point to stop and take it all in after you walk the side streets or come from the beach. Or head into the older parts of the city.
There are a large number of buses to choose from - both for local trips into Nice and coaches to resorts which are further afield. Listed below are the local buses which connect you from the Airport into Nice City Centre:
98 bus - Airport terminal 1 & 2 - Promenade des Anglais - Place Masséna - Gare Routière (Bus station) - Nice Port
99 bus- Airport (Terminals 1 & 2) - Thiers Gambetta - Gare SNCF (Nice Ville Train station)
You are also 5 min walk to the main train station Nice Ville, where Cannes, Monaco Monte Carlo and other cities are about 20-30 min of reach. Plus... St Tropez (bus 104)...
