Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The unofficial capital of the Côte d’Azur, Nice attracts millions of visitors each year who come to sample its eclectic mix of stunning seaside location, old-world glamour, fascinating architecture and its cuisine.
It’s the perfect place to experience the allure of the French Riviera. With approximately one million people, it’s the fifth largest city in France and has earned the nickname of Nice la Belle, translated as Nice the beautiful.
Most international travellers arrive via Nice Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in France. As you come into land, you’ll be treated to stunning views over the French Riviera, before landing at one of the two terminals.
Once on solid ground, you can either make your way into the town via bus or, if you prefer to arrive in style, by one of the shuttle buses or private airport transfers available through Rent A Bus. To find out more about our airport transfers in Nice, get in touch with us now.

To get a bird’s eye view of Nice, head to the Colline du Château which overlooks the Baie des Anges and Nice harbour. While not much is left of the castle itself apart from a few walls, the view across the bay is absolutely spectacular.
A walk around the dark, narrow alleyways that make up the old town of Nice is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Packed with restaurants, bars, boutiques and delis, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely meal while people watching.
It’s also home to the Cathédrale Ste-Réparate, the 16th century Chapelle de la Miséricord and the Palais Lascaris which was built in the 17th century, together with the daily flower and fruit market of Cours Saleya.
If you love spending time in museums, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in Nice. You’ll find some of the most famous museums in the upper part of the city, which is known as Cimiez. These include the Museum of Asian Art on the Promenade des Anglais, the most famous stretch of seafront in Nice.
The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is also worth a visit. Housing European and American art from the 1950s to the present day, it contains works from artists such as Christo, Yves Klein and César. You’ll also get a fantastic view of the city from its rooftop.
Additionally, on the Promenade des Anglais, you’ll find Parc Phoenix, a botanical park filled with 2,500 different plants; the famous Hotel Negresco which first opened its doors in 1913; the Palais de la Mediterranee which is an art-deco delight, and the famous iron sculpture depicting Nice’s blue and white deckchairs by Sabine Geraudie.
A visit to Port Lympia offers another stunning view of Nice. A stroll along the quayside with its beautiful Venetian buildings will give you a chance to admire the numerous luxury yachts moored up here and catch a glimpse of the lives of the rich and famous.
Head 6 kilometres out of Nice to the north, and you’ll come to the city’s observatory. Topped by a white dome, the Observatory offers guided tours on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and can be reached either by bus, by car, or by hiring a minibus or coach complete with a driver from Rent A Bus Nice.
