Nice Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

One of the main hubs of the French Riviera, Nice is the epitome of an idyllic Mediterranean holiday. But while the virtues of the beaches that surround the city are well-known, Nice also has plenty to offer in terms of history, culture, and fun day-trips. With that in mind, here are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Nice:

  • Old Nice. Known as Vieux Nice in French, the oldest part of the city is a fascinating place to explore. Many of the city’s historical and architectural landmarks can be found here, including a number of beautiful churches, villas, and other heritage buildings. The old town is also home to a fruit and flower market that is open every day.
  • Museums. While the weather in Nice is usually too splendid to want to spend any time indoors, the city’s selection of museums might make you choose otherwise, if only for a few hours. Some of the highlights include the Chagall and Matisse Museums dedicated to the famous French painters who were connected to Nice during their lifetimes, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (or MAMAC), and the Museum of Asian Art. History lovers will no doubt appreciate the Nice Museum of Archaeology which houses many Greek and Roman artifacts from the city’s 2,300 year-long history.
  • Mercantour National Park. Representing something of a middle ground between the sea coast in the south and the Alp summits in the north, Mercantour is one of the nicest scenic areas near Nice. Made up of long valleys (including the famous Valley of Marvels), scenic lakes, and a network of 600 km (372 miles) of hiking trails, the area is home to animals like ibex, red deer, eagles, and buzzards. Located just 50 km (31 miles) north of Nice, Mercantour can be reached in one hour or less.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Marseille (200 km / 124 mi). Larger, more industrial, and less touristy than Nice, the largest city of Southern France is nonetheless a great travel destination if you give it a chance. Visitors love its old harbour, the historic Le Panier area, and the Marseille Cathedral.
  • Milan (328 km / 204 mi). The largest city in Northern Italy, Milan is a well-known powerhouse of arts, fashion, business, and cuisine. The city is home to some of the best museums in Italy and landmarks like the La Scala opera house.
  • Barcelona (657 km / 408 mi). One of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, Spain’s second city has plenty for a traveler to enjoy. The city’s main claim to world fame is the architecture of Antoni Gaudi that includes the immense Sagrada Familia, La Rambla area, and the city’s football team. The rest of Catalonia, a fascinating and picturesque region, can be easily explored from here.
  • Rome (702 km / 436 mi). The eternal city is home to probably more world-famous historic landmarks than any other place on the planet. From sites dating back to the Ancient Rome to the medieval and Renaissance heritage, there’s plenty to choose from. The city’s great restaurants that blend the best of Northern and Southern Italian traditions are also not to be missed.
  • Geneva (611 km / 379 mi). The largest city of French-speaking Switzerland, Geneva is so much more than just a diplomatic and political powerhouse. Located on the beautiful lake of the same name, Geneva is home to historic city quarters, countless galleries, and large green spaces.
  • Toulouse (554 km / 344 mi). Known as the Pink city thanks to its distinct architecture, the capital of Occitanie region is a great place to visit. Some of the attractions are the Saint-Sernin Basilica, a contemporary art museum, and walks along the Canal du Midi. Toulouse is also a great place for accessing the nearby Pyrenees.
  • Moûtiers (500 km / 311 mi)

Be prepared for some very narrow roads and parking spots, I will definitely rent a much smaller car next time, Alamo were fantastic to rent from. All the toll roads accepted PayWave, (much easier than fishing around for coins). Note, some French drivers and riders treat the road rules as more of a general guide, so watch out when driving for some unexpected behaviour.

We didn't actually drive in Nice. We picked the car up at the airport and drove straight to the countryside. I'd highly recommend that!
