Nice - A Cosmopolitan Cocktail

For over 200 years Nice and its surrounding region has held a fascination for the British with its fine weather, stunning scenery and that touch of 'je ne sais quois'. Nice is one of those places whose name conjures up images of all that is chic and sophisticated.


Something Old, Something New

Certainly there are enough stylish restaurants, smart cafes, fancy bakeries and trendy boutiques to deserve that description, and a stroll under the palm trees of the Promenade des Anglais still has echoes of those film star days.

But in the Old Town the narrow streets evoke a more medieval atmosphere with plenty to explore among its winding alleys and red-tiled buildings: markets - especially the well-known flower market - small restaurants, cafés and shops.

But despite the pleasures of strolling around Nice, the South of France is also a wonderful place for driving and Thrifty Car Hire in Nice understands that.

Driving the Corniche

So enjoy Nice and the surrounding area from the comfort of your hire car - cruising along the seafront and along to Antibes and Juan-les-Pins, or venturing into the hills and topping it off (literally) with a drive down La Grande Corniche. This has to be the road that has appeared in more car commercials than any other and it is the road itself that is the 'visitor experience' sweeping majestically above the 'Azure Coast' and offering superb views, nowhere more so than from the beautiful hilltop village of Eze.

And if you really want to soak in some more of that 'rich and famous' feeling, pop down to Monte Carlo.

Riviera Rendezvous

Nice is definitely a place where you need a car to get the best out of your visit. So much lies in the hills just away from the coast and - combined with great roads like La Grande Corniche - this is definitely best experienced by car.
