"Nice is nice in October" Nice by Beausoleil
Nice Travel Guide: 1,976 reviews and 4,504 photos
Nice is very crowded during the "season" but in the autumn, it is lovely and uncrowded. There is an excellent public transportation system and fares to Nice airport are reasonable.
Just wandering through town is reason enough to go, but the seaside is lovely; the Cours Saleya markets are fun; the surrounding area is diverse and if you need more, take a train to other exciting places on the Riviera.
This was taken in mid-October. As you can see, it is still warm enough to eat outside. Walk through the town, visit the Promenade, tour the market and then settle down streetside for a leisurely lunch and some genuine people watching.
(please find the "Travelogue" heading and see the market photos)
In the summer, this is an incredibly crowded busy place. In October, there were a few people actually in the water, but it was mostly people out for a quiet walk.
If you like peace and the ocean, come in the autumn. If you like bustling crowds, come in July and August.
- Pros:Lovely city, friendly people, great views, terrific market
- Cons:construction during our stay was manic
- In a nutshell:Quiet Nice in the Fall; Fun Nice in the summer
If you have a few days in Nice, get on the bus and visit nearby Cagnes-sur-Mer. It is famous for for the Renoir Museum... more travel advice
We spent the morning at the Beaux Arts and were having a substantial dinner that evening so we only wanted a sandwich... more travel advice
