"Like in any big city, be careful" Dangerous Areas Tip by ange_famine

Dangerous Areas, Nice: 13 reviews and 2 photos

Be careful not to go to ghettos like l'Ariane or Les Moulins, or even Nice Nord or La Trinite.
Basically, the town centre is fine as long as there are people, as the recent events called for more police patrols, so you're fine. Staying in rich areas like Cimiez, Caucade or Pessicart hill is fine as well.

Be very careful:
- Of the zone around the train station
- Dark parts of the old town (keep to the main street)
- The Massena gardens at night (drug dealers and yobs) (from the sea to Acropolis)
- La Californie, La Promenade des Anglais (prostitutes)
- There is a lot of bad behaviour and provocations at times - don't answer, and go away.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
