Nice Activities: 10 Activities to do in Nice France

1. Escape Game

For those who do not know the concept, an “escape game” is a game to play with friends. Usually in a team of 2 to 6 players. You are locked in a themed room and you have an hour to get out. For example, at the Lockout – Antibes, with a different theme everytime like Sherlock Holmes, the room is riddled with riddles and codes to decipher, and full of suspense, like it is in the movie.

Price: About twenty euros per person (€20 euro).

2. Visit a Perfumery

It may seem a bit off with Grasse, perhaps, but living in the region we do not necessarily think you should miss making this kind of visit! We are lucky to have the world’s perfume capital next door, so enjoy it.

Price: About € 5 euro depending on the season.

  • Fragonard
  • Gallimard
  • Molinard

3. Florian Confectionery

Take the time to discover the Florian Confectioneries where you will see the transformation of flowers and fruits into treats. The visit is free, open from 9h to 18h all year and until 19h in summer.

4. Spa and Wellness

It is a must for lovers of well-being, the French Riviera is full of Spas. Nothing better to turn a rainy day into a day of relaxation.

You will find a place for all budgets.

Some examples:

  • Boscolo Excedra Nice
  • Hotel Cezanne Cannes
  • Radisson Blu Cannes
  • The Mas Candille Mougins
  • Domain of Terre Blanche in the Var

5. Rink and Sports Complex / Pool

The large complex Jean Bouin in Nice offers you the opportunity to swim and unwind without registration (day access € 10.50). The ice rink is in the same place (entrance at € 3.80), so you can enjoy the activities you prefer!

6. The Oceanographic Museum in Monaco

If you can not go for a walk in MarineLand, when the sun is not there on the Côte d’Azur, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is a nice option for a family outing. You can enjoy the animals and improve your culture a bit.


Adult: 14 €
Teen (13-18 years old): 10 €
Child (4-12 years old): 7 €

7. Cinema

Great classic rainy day, Cinema is obviously the number one option for many of us. For Nice, we recommend the huge Pathé Lingotière complex with its magnificent rooms, restaurants, and game room.

8. Bowling and Lasergame

To stay in the safe place, opt for a Bowling or Lasergame / Laserquest, it’s sure to have a good time.

Prices vary around 8 € per person for a Bowling and 10-11 € for a Lasergame.

  • Lasergame Evolution – Nice Lingostière
  • Bowling – Cannes La Bocca
  • Laserquest – Cannes La Bocca

9. Take a cooking class

We rarely think about it, but a rainy day is an opportunity to learn new disciplines. You can go to different types of courses like yoga/pilates etc … And for the most original, there are more and more cooking classes in the region.

Price: The rates are very variable between about 20 and 80 € according to the formulas you choose.

  • Cooking in class: 75 avenue Alfred Borriglione, Nice
  • Tam’s workshop: 2 place Guynemer, Nice

10. Shopping Getaway

Forcing, to cheer up shopping is a good therapy when it rains on the Côte d’Azur! So you can shelter in one of the many shopping centers in the region.
