A ten miute walk out of the centre to the Football stadium. We saw a game against Toulouse, a 1-0 home win. OGC? that's Olmpic Gymnastic Club!
Noisy and entertaining crowd singing mostly Italian songs, Forza Nizza!
Power-assisted para-flying thingumy
Don't know its proper name, if it has one, but what bloody fantastic way to fly.
Sort of one man parachute-assisted microlite with a small rear-mounted propellor and an upright pilot--seat.
He came sailing over the Chateau, virtually silent , in a gravity-defying slow glide, and gently rolled around the sky over the beach and out to sea. All in all must have been up in the air fifteen or more minutes. And I want to know where I can get one because I want one too. However I suspect this one was home-built.
Local Rugby team
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 €).
Equipment: 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.

Biking, roller-blading, jogging
The Promenade des Anglais" along the sea, is the best way to enjoy a training run in Nice.
Equipment: Bicycle and/or pair of roller blades and a pair of good sneakers.
The right gear for inlines
Equipment: I usually go sports travelling with my pair of demountable inlines. They are not heavy at all, but booted up rather high. The wheel frames are sturdy and easily transportable.
Inline cruising the Med
Cruise along the blue Med on inlines as palm trees roll by, a great way to fly. Soak in the evening sun as you go westwards.
