Nice: Family Holiday

Nice is a good city to enjoy a family holiday. It is a bustling city with many outdoor attractions catering to younger people. Children and adults alike will be amazed by the crystal blue sea and endless strip of beach. In wet weather (Nice enjoys 300 days a year of sunshine) head to the Natural History Museum or the art museums and see what children workshops are planned. In summer families in Nice can take full advantage of the sun by walking the Promenade des Anglais and shopping for that perfect souvenir. The Old Town boasts the city's best ice-cream at Fenocchio’s Glacier.

Families in Nice will also enjoy Parc Phoenix home to exotic plants and birds. Under 12's go free. Seafront entertainers are always popular with children as are the fun children-friendly restaurants on the waterfront. Nice also has a Mini-Train at Jardin Albert for families to take in the city sites. Further a field (only ten miles west) check out Aqua Splash.

Even with younger children you can do most of Nice’s sightseeing on foot and there are plenty of green spaces for a family picnic. Families can find a wide range of family friendly accommodation in Nice available. Nice is definitely a good option for a summer family holiday.
