Experience the magic of Christmas in Nice

Slowly but surely, the magic of Christmas is taking hold in Nice Côte d’Azur…

A PARTY SPIRIT IN THE CITY CENTre AND its NEIGHBOuRHOODS

This year again, Nice shines bright!

Turning on the illuminations on Thursday 7 December 2023 at 6.00pm!

On Promenade du Paillon, the giant luminous Christmas trees are reflected on the ground and in the hearts of passers-by.

All around, the natural vegetation is brought into focus through clever lighting. The facades of Place Masséna serve as giant canvases for artistic projections.

On Promenade des Anglais, 479 palm trees are illuminated down their trunk and along their palms with thousands of sparkling lights. Opposite the children’s hospital, a giant Father Christmas is also lit by 30 000 LED bulbs. From one neighbourhood to another, the lights shine bright to create gold and silver nights.

Villa Masséna is also lit up.

GOURMET SHOPPING for a wonderful PARTY TABLE

With more than 600 shops spread across the old town, Old Nice is a great place to find typical and more traditional products, but not just that…

In each neighbourhood, there are specialist boutiques, independent brands and even art galleries alongside local brands…

For generations, they have been promoting products that are 100% made in Nice and showing off all this know-how.

Olive oil, wine, chocolate and fruit jellies are ideal festive foods to give as gifts or simply offer during your party evenings.
