Christmas Markets in Nice and Monaco
There may not be snow but the Christmas spirit is alive and well in the Cote d’Azur.
The best and brightest Christmas Markets (Marché de Noël) are here in Nice. Find them on the doorstep of the hostel, or at our friendly neighbour, Monaco! Stay with us for Christmas and and visit them both easily from the Hostel.
Noël à Nice:
Ring in the festive season with French Champagne and Oysters after a lap around the Christmas Village ice-skating rink, or warm up with hot chocolate while exploring the Enchanted Forest of 600 Christmas trees. Filled with nearly 70 food and craft artisan stalls you’ll be sure to find yourself a seasonal keepsake, or gifts for friends and family back home. The Nice Christmas Market is open now in Place Massena until the first Sunday after New Year.
Monte Carlo Christmas Village:
It’s a Christmas market fit for a Prince! The high-rollers of nearby Monaco know how to put on the glitz with a Christmas Market that stretches along the famous port and stunning light displays at the Palace and Casino. Make a New Years Resolution atop the Ferris Wheel, or join other revelers ringing in the New Year at Casino Square. Last minute shopping? You’ve got until the Sunday after New Year to find that something special.
Did you know?: It’s a regional tradition to finish dinner on the big day with 13 desserts! Type and size of dish are up to you… better get started!
