More than 100,000 people come to Nice carnival. This year`s edition looks set to be another big event, with performers from around the world coming to Nice. The theme is King of Pop Culture; expect to see all kinds of decorated floats celebrating this annual theme.
Tickets for the stands can be bought in advance. The festival atmosphere carries on after the performance in the many bars of the old town.
Every year Nice hosts a beautiful Christmas market on Massena square in the centre of town. Palm trees, rosé, champagne and oysters, as well as traditional stalls are all part of the market experience.
With 300 years of sunshine a year, Nice often has balmy t-shirt weather in December. We recommend a Christmas lunch in the sun at le Galet Beach restaurant, feet from the sea.
Nice is a great place to spend New Year`s, with events organised all over the city.
The hostel bar will be busy from 6pm onwards, and will run until late. A special pub crawl event will be leaving from the hostel - give us a call or email for details. Don`t forget to explore the Christmas market that carries over New Year into January.
The water is still warm mid- October, so why not try scuba diving on the French Riviera. Take a 2½ hour boat tour of the coast, accompanied by experienced Padi diving instructors. No previous experience necessary. When not diving, you can snorkel around the marine reserve coral reef. Leaving at 9 am and 2 pm with a 40% discount if you book through the hostel.

The Nice Jazz festival has a fantastic line-up of world class Jazz artists. But the festival goes beyond just Jazz- artists like Seal, Lauren Hill and Kanye West have performed. So whatever music you`re into, it`s worth checking the line- up.
Set in the heart of Nice, a stone`s throw from the beach on stages surrounded by beautiful architecture and palm trees, the festival just has a smaller and more intimate size- in contrast to bigger music festivals, you can actually enjoy the music up close.
