The Old Town is the historical and geographical centre of Nice and so Françoise is perfectly placed to access all areas of the city. Flanked on one side by the Promenade du Paillon, a beautiful park of fountains, greenery and a magnificent children’s play area, and the Colline du Chateau on the other, the Vieille Ville is also a stone’s throw from the beach and so really is a wonderful location. The colourful blend of yellows, ochres and terracotta gives the perfect holiday feel as you stroll around the narrow streets soaking up the atmosphere. It is home to small boutiques, a plethora of restaurants, cafes, bars and galleries; a veritable treasure trove of sights and sounds just waiting to be discovered.

Public transport

The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.70 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.
Please be aware that at the airport the ticket machines only allow you to buy round trip tickets for 10€. To buy regular tickets (1.70€) you have to take the tramway from the airport to the next stop (grand Arenas) for free, get off the tram, buy the tickets (a card you can top up) at the machine and get on the next tram (be prepared for a line of people trying to understand how it works and up to 30 minutes waiting time).
