Nice is one of the few cities in France you can explore without needing a substantial budget. It's a city of many faces, serving as a coastal resort, historic landmark, and a tourist magnet for the southern region.

We've put together a list of money-saving tips to help you experience what Nice has to offer in terms of culture and leisure, all at a reasonable price.
