What to do while in Nice

One of the most iconic landmarks in niece is the Promenade des Anglais. This is a long stretch of beach that sits on the Mediterranean Sea and offers all types of activities, shopping and dining choices. A short drive from the center of the city is the Musée Matisse. This is a museum that devotes itself to the works of Henri Matisse, the famous French painter. If you are in the mood to spend time in a vibrant market that offers a wealth of local fare, then make the trip to Cours Saleya.  

Summer in Nice

The weather in Nice in the summer is quite spectacular. Temperatures range from the mid-70s to the low 80s and there are only a couple of days per month that rainfall occurs. If you love to get out and hike in weather like this the Mercantour National Park is just a short drive from Nice and offers amazing trails. Head over to the Cap de Nice if you are the type of person who loves to see what lies under the sea by doing some snorkeling.

Great service - quick, thorough, friendly. Convenient location in Nice. Mr. Mouta***** was extraordinary. He answered all my questions with clear expertise and a great big smile. Will definitely book again through Sixt, not only on the Riviera but also elsewhere.

Terminal one counter staff was unhelpful and was sent to terminal 2. At terminal 2 Thanks to Leila who was absolutely amazing helped us out to turnaround the situation . Only negative I could say is when returning your car it’s a bit of a maze to find the place . Remember if your booking, their main branch is in terminal 2.

So when returning car and if your flying out of terminal one you’ll have to take a free bus ride or pay for a tram ride to terminal 1. Do consider timing when flying out .

I’ve never been a great fan of car hire companies but my recent experience at Sixt at Nice Airport was a welcome change. Speedy process, a great Audi that was almost new and a dream to drive and Hayckel on the front desk was a pleasure to deal with . Would definitely consider Sixt again.

Really clear, honest and comfortable service

Agent at desk was kind and efficient, car was new, clean and had some extra options (Navigation system as well as anti-collision radar).
