There is no more limitation of 100 km movement  and people can move freely in France from 2nd of June. The advice us not to go too far and be sensible and not to go to areas exposed with more cases and are considered high risk.
Nice and the French Riviera are classified as a low risk GREEN area.
France will not quarantine people entering from European countries except if the country itself is having a quarantine in place for French people coming in. So for example, France will have a quarantine imposed to UK people as long as the UK has one in place for France when entering UK.

The Opera beach

Did you know? The opera beach is one of the oldest in Nice, since 1889. It is run by the Maiffret family since it opened and has been passed from generation to generation ever since. The beach is located on the famous ‘Promenade des Anglais’ and is aptly named after the ‘Opera de Nice’ house which sits directly behind it. Here, you can also benefit from easy access to Nice’s key attractions and of course the cobbled narrow streets of the old town.

The French  community cannot wait to welcome holiday makers back to the French Riviera. So many businesses are dependent on your custom and welcome the buzz and liveliness holidaymakers bring. However, everyone is nervous about the Covid 19 pandemic and so much effort has been made to isolate for so long that releasing lock down will naturally bring a fear and nervousness about people arriving from outside the region. So, as much as your business is wanted and appreciated we ask you to read our advice on social distancing in the area. Before you go into a shop or pick up a takeaway check the social distance rules the locals are using. Lets work together to ensure the release of lockdown is treated with caution so holidaymakers and locals can ensure a harmonious summer season!
