Nice, France Price Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

Nice is the largest city along the Côte d’Azur, and it’s got plenty to recommend it, especially for those who don’t mind a beach made of gravel. In addition to several notable attractions of its own, Nice is a short train ride from both Cannes and Monaco, so it’s an ideal base for those wanting to explore the more expensive parts of the French Riviera.

Along with being the largest city, Nice is also the cheapest city in the area for tourists, as long as you are willing to stay at least a few blocks from the beach. There is a good budget-travel infrastructure in the city, so even backpackers can find things they can afford on a short visit.
