Anything

by Muscovite

Hi,

Anything new in Nice that may disturb a tourist in September?

Railways strikes, road works, sharks in the beach etc?

Re: Anything

Hi

Shark-wise, the one recently spotted was actually a dolphin so you should be fine.
There's a transport strike announced for the 7th of Sept but it is not clear whether it will be just in the Paris area or will also affect other towns like Nice.
Maybe someone knows?

P.S. Sorry for the typo - should have been ‘Anything NEW’

Re: Anything

by NiceLife

September 7th is a co-ordinated national strike of public sector workers timed to coincide with, I believe, the French Parliament opening debate on pensions, or so I read somewhere. No matter the reasons, it means buses and trains at risk of disruption, and possibly air trafic control (though they have their own separate dispute over the European Skies programme, which could stop these overpaid prima donnas paralysing air trafic)

Either way, September 7th is a good day to make a start on that book you keep meaning to read.

‘September 7th is a co-ordinated national strike of public sector workers’

I think they had a general strike on Tuesday, too, last time I was in Nice.
They surely are very coordinated!

Re: Anything new

by Muscovite

Adelinemmc,
Thanks, sounds assuring. Not that I can tell a shark from a dolphin before it’s too late :)

Re: Anything

by adelinemmc

Hi muscovite

That's easy: the shark is the one smiling with the big teeth!

Joking aside, a small whale was spotted in July a little bit further down the coast (near La Napoule and Théoule) so it looks like the local waters are getting popular with the big stuff.

These various sea creatures have been around all the time, and suddenly its Jaws III. Local media have got caught up in a little "feeding frenzy". I expect fishy stories will continue to bob up until public attention fatigues and moves on.

Re: Anything

by jamesfmunro

Sharks are rare in the Mediterranean these days. The Oceanographic Museum in Monaco has preserved specimens collected on the Cote d'Azur, but most of these are now rather old. I think blue sharks are still around. There is a population of great whites in the mediterranean, but these are definitely not common.

Re: Anything

by NiceLife

The point James was that some of the big fish washed up turn out not to have been sharks, just feared to have been sharks.So quite rare they remain.

Travel Tips for Nice

Socca

by BurgerQueen

Everybody will tell you to eat Socca if you go to Nice.
It looks like a crèpe, but prepared with chickpea flour instead of wheat flour. It is a cheap food, but it cannot be considered as a meal.
Since I am not fond of chickpea, I didn't like it so much, the taste of chickpea is very strong.

by Barbara2

We had dinner on the covered terrace of a very nice restaurant arranged by the tour company. The rain kept the crowds away. Note: do not wear new leather-soled shoes in Monte Carlo when the sidewalks are wet. Sidewalks are tile and not level. Result: hydroplaning downhill!!! I think it might become a new sport. It was an attention-getter.
This photo is the daytime shot of the Old Casino as we enter the restaurant. You need your passport to enter the Old Casino.

The "Nissart" language

by Elainehead

Nissart is the language of the county of Nice. Very rare to hear these days, but you still can find some locals talking with their friends and family in this language.
If you pay attention while in Nice, you will notice street signs in French and in "nissart" as well. It is easier to see that in the Old Town (Vieux-Nice).
Nissa is Nice in nissart.

Local Rugby team

by Elainehead

RNCA (Rugby Nice Cote d'Azur) is a great team and hopefully they will be joining the French Top 14.

Kid and pet-friendly, lots of anglophones too (if you are afraid of not speaking French), you have no excuse not to come.

Tickets can be bought at the entrance (less than 10 €). If it's windy or cold, dress warmly.

If it rains, don't forget your raincoat/umbrella.

Seats are not clean, so bring something to sit on.

by SilverVelvet

It's hard to say that a village located only eight minutes from Nice (by train) is off the beaten path. However, for those who are looking for a peaceful way to spend a day, consider a walk around the small fishing village of Villefranche. There's no glitz here, but rather real people just moving about with life's daily rhythm. The women might be hanging the laundry while the girls play in the narrow cobblestone streets, the boys fish at the harbor or the men repair their fishing boats in the marina.
