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, smooth and efficient experience all the way through from picking up car at Nice Gare after a long train trip to returning it at Nice Airport. Friendly, helpful employees at each location, no long lines (like at other agencies we saw), and an excellent selection of cars at reasonable prices. Particular shout out to the awesome employee at Nice Gare who was there with our rental info when we arrived and took the time to explain everything and make sure the car was to our liking. This was our first time using Sixt. We will be using it a lot from now on.

We had to rent a car on short notivce because our own car broke down on our way home from vacations. We arrived at SIXT in Nice airport pretty stressed and exhausted. After being unsuccessful at Europcar we queued up at SIXT (a few minutes of waiting). Amber helped us to get a car for a oneway journey back to Zurich. Super fast and for a very honest price. In approx 10 min we had the keys and a way back home! She took all stress away and even offered us water. She was an angel! The car was new and easy to drive. The pickup as well as drop off process are pretty easy and uncomplicated. The hotline is also very helpful. Amber is a very well trained employee with top customer service and orientation! We'd be happy to book with her again. Thanks for your amazing work and customer service! Keep up the good work!


Sixt in Nice / Airport Côte d'Azur (Summer 2022): For the car booking I like the Sixt webpage. Good overview, all important information compact. Nice design. That's why I book a few times a year.


End of July we got our car in Nice / Airport. We arrived from Zurich (holiday) and were really relaxed: After 10-15 minutes everything was settled.


Unfortunately, the login on the page and on the app did not work for us with the new booking. Two days ago, I wanted to postpone the return via the service line. Attention !! If you use the English service, you get the sounds of a stock market somewhere in Far East? Nobody will answer and after 15 seconds you will be kicked out. If you chose the German service, you are kicked out directly.


You should go over the nice French voice. Within 3 Minutes everything is fixed. Today I returned the car at Nice / Airport Côte d'Azur, one day earlier and get the extra day back. I discussed my experience with the service line with the lady at the counter. She explained me the new centralization corporate strategy.


For the new Strategy (Hello Management, are you sleeping ??) and the silly service line in English = Zero points. For the work and commitment of the people in Nice = 5 points.


We will be back in Nice and look for the best car rental company.
