Just returned from Nice. Amazing. Our first time there.

July will be peak so expect crowds. Lots of construction and restoration as all of France is getting ready for 2024 Olympics.

We stayed at Le Meridian so my recs will be places in walking distance from there.

Boccaccio took care of us for dinner one night and great option for fresh seafood and pasta. If you like raw seafood, I recommend. We arrived when they opened at 7pm and within 15 minutes they were turning people away.

Best views were from the “castle”. The hike was worth it. Never got to Negresco but looked like a great place for a drink or brunch or whatever. The Market is great for cheap souvenirs or fresh fruit, etc.

Train to Monaco for a day trip was worth it. Grab a drink at cafe in front of Monte Carlo Casino and people watch. Lost count of the Ferraris.

If you there for 3 days, I suggest planning one day to visit another town. So many to choose from. Just search French Riveria on YouTube and find your flavor. Pick one unless y’all like to hop around all day to “dip your toe”

We found nice little Airbnb in Nice right off Prom des Anglais. Had great time wondering around old town finding nice restaurants. Wish I could remember names.

The market was fun also. Took day trip to Monte Carlo to see casino and museum. Took another to Eze to Fragonard, wife loved this trip. We also took boat ride to Saint Tropez.

We went in September and it was hot. Would go back for sure.

I went to Nice in 2016. We were in Monte Carlo and went there on a day trip. Since we were not there at night, I do not have a lot of fine dining recommendations, but I can recommend one place, at least for the atmosphere. - Plage Beau Rivage. It is literally on the beach. We were not there at mealtime, but we did sit out on the deck for a good while having drinks and snacks. I give it an A+ for ambiance.

As far as things to do, we spent most of the time hanging around the beach and promenade. There is an outdoor market area in the town center.

I would suggest taking a day trip to Monte Carlo to see the sights there including the Palace, the Cathedral, the Old Town area and the elegant Casino.

You can also stop at one of the other picturesque towns along the coast such as Villefranche sur mer and Beaulieu sur mer, but my favorite is Eze. Eze is an old medieval town built on a hill. There is one main street that zig zags up the hill. You can walk up it and at the top is a park with beautiful views of the Mediterranean.

Was in Nice in October. If you're looking for fine dining, JAN was fantastic. We also drove to Menton for dinner at Mirazur, which is considered one of the best restaurants in the world. Not cheap but worth the cost if you're into that kind of meal.

Maybe the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in is just above Nice. The Domaine du Mas de Pierre. Just below St. Paul de Vence. Simply stunning.
