Expert Experience with a SportsBreak Insider

At the The Place Masséna which is the main square in Nice, you’ll find lots of bars and restaurants from along its many side streets offering local and international cuisines.

Take a walk down the Promenade des Anglais ("Promenade of the English") which is only 2 minutes from Place Masséna and it will lead you to Nice downtown and if it’s history that you are looking for then head to Place Garibaldi which is near to the Vieux Nice (Old Town).

You can also be in Monaco in 40 minutes on the train from Nice Ville (Main Station in Nice) for as little as €10 and spend the day exploring Monaco and walking the famous circuit of the Monaco Grand Prix.
