The apartment is in the Quartier Musiciens (Musicians Quarter) in central Nice, a well-kept, stylish, residential quarter 5 blocks from the sea and famous Promenade des Anglais- the perfect place to stroll as visitors have done for more than a century. The busy shopping/restaurant areas of rue Massena and Avenue Jean Medecin are 10-15 minutes on foot and the wonderful 'Old Town' a 20 minute stroll for dinner! Nearby on Boulevard Victor Hugo is the Jardin d'Alsace Lorraine, a quiet garden respite. Downtown terrain is basically flat which makes walking a pleasure!
A car is definitely not needed to enjoy your vacation in Nice. Train and bus service is easily available for visits to other wonderful Riviera sites and in addition Auto-Bleue, a short-term electric rental car service has autos available in the block next to the apartment. For information see their site at www.autobleue.org. At the top of the screen you can choose an English translation of the page.
