It isn’t far from the principality of Monaco or the Italian border and is a major attraction for visitors to the Riviera. If you’re exploring Nice during your stay in the south of France, then you may want to consider hiring a private driver to transport you around the city. Chauffer services are amongst the safest and most exclusive ways to explore the Riviera. In this article, we’ll tell you a bit more about the attractions in Nice and the benefits of hiring a private driver to show you around. We’ll also tell you what sort of costings you can expect if you did decide to hire a private driver in Nice.
There are numerous places to visit and things to see during your stay in Nice. As well as hitting the beach, you may well want to enjoy a dose of culture. Nice Cathedral is reminiscent of a Russian Orthodox church, including the resplendent onion domes you’re likely to associate with St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow. If you enter inside the cathedral itself then you’ll be greeted by an array of timeless paintings, beautiful sculptures and much more.
No trip to Nice would be complete without soaking up the coastal views along the Promenade de Anglais. The tree-lined walkway is decorated with the ocean on one side and a host of boutique shops, bars, restaurants, and hotels on the other. If you’re feeling fit enough then you are welcome to walk the entire 7km stretch of the promenade, or you could have your private driver pick you up at one end and ferry you to the other?
To enjoy more sumptuous views over the city of Nice, you’ll want to bead to Parc de la Colline du Chateau, on the eastern side of the city. The park can be reached on foot or by using a free elevator. Once you arrive, you can admire a beautiful waterfall and watch the sunset over the city.
Now you know a bit more about what to expect from your trip to Nice, and the places you should visit, lets discuss some of the reasons that hiring a private driver could be perfect for your trip. Here are some of the many benefits of hiring a chauffeur in Nice.
If you’re visiting Nice for the first time then there is a good chance you won’t know your way around. And it can be quite intimidating trying to navigate an unfamiliar city. A private driver solves this problem for you. Your chauffeur will know all the best routes to your destination and will be able to resolve any issues if you are involved in a car accident, it won’t be on you to deal with the French authorities!
Maybe you’re flying into Nice for a big event, such as a wedding or anniversary party? You may have important timings that cannot be missed. Your private driver will be able to meticulously plan your journey, ensuring you don’t arrive late to any of the events you have planned during your stay in Nice.
Nice is a beautiful city. But if you’re driving yourself around the city and getting stressed, then you won’t be able to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings. With a private driver, you won’t need to worry about getting lost, you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride, and the view. Alternatively, if you have work to do then you can use the journey to catch up on emails or make a call. Or if it’s been a late night the night before, why not have a quick sleep? The options are endless, whatever you decide to do during your journey, it will be much more productive than if you were having to drive yourself!
Like all cities, Nice can get very congested, especially if there are roadworks, or there has been a traffic accident. This could disrupt your plans if you are driving yourself around – you could be late because of trying to find another route. Your private driver will almost certainly have satellite navigation and traffic monitoring apps within his or her car. This means such incidents can be avoided more easily, and your journey can be completed without any problems.
If you’re visiting Nice for leisure, then it is possible you’ll want to enjoy a few drinks in the evenings, probably at some of the city’s glamorous restaurants, or maybe at your own private event. It goes without saying that drinking and driving is a no no, so what other options are there? Well, a private driver solves all of your problems, they will be able to pick you up and take you home after your event, meaning you can continue to enjoy the evening with a few drinks, without having to worry about driving back to the hotel.
