How to Spend 2 Days in Nice

How to Spend 2 Days in Nice

From its splendid waterfront to its vibrant food scene, from its Riviera weather to its impeccable scenery, Nice is as much a Mediterranean idyll as it is a cultural hub. Explore by boat, indulge in wine tastings, and enjoy a leisurely dose of sightseeing. Here’s how to make the most of your 2-day stay in the Côte d'Azur's capital.

 

Day 1: Sightseeing and Exploring

**Morning:**Get acquainted with Nice’s charms and enjoy an introductory tour of the city when you book tickets to a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Thread your way through different neighborhoods, admire waterfront views, and discover key landmarks.

 

**Afternoon:**Trade your double-decker bus for a yacht—and discover a completely different perspective on the Côte d’Azur’s capital—on an afternoon boat tour. Enjoy sea breezes as you trawl the turquoise waters of the Baie des Anges and glide past nearby locales such as Villefranche-sur-Mer and Menton.

 

**Evening:**The Promenade des Anglais is arguably Nice’s top attraction, and it’s true that a stroll along its languid crescent is a classic Niçois experience. Set out at sunset, enjoy the people watching, and feel like a local as you amble. After you’ve worked up an appetite, venture to one of the elegant restaurants nearby.

 

Day 2: La Belle Vie

**Morning:**In Nice, the living is easy—and no trip is complete without indulging in its finer things. Begin your second day in the city with a food-themed walking tour: Stroll through busy markets and graze as you go. Alternatively, for a hands-on experience, book a local-led cooking class.

 

**Afternoon:**Once you’ve sated your appetite, dedicate your afternoon to all things wine-related. Provence is a dream destination for wine lovers; sign up for a grape-centric tour to taste some of the region’s most exquisite varietals.

 

**Evening:**For a truly luxurious end to your trip, hop across the border into Monaco in the evening—it’s just a quick trip from Nice. Enjoy a dinner to remember when you venture to one of the principality’s high-end restaurants; afterwards, drop into the Casino Monte-Carlo for a roll of the dice.
