Sustainability and respect for the environment are increasingly important issues in the world of tourism. If you want to minimize your environmental impact during your stay in Nice, here are a few useful tips:

Use public transport

Nice has an excellent public transport network, including streetcars, buses and trains. By using these services, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. What’s more, many of these services are electric, which is even better for the environment.

Go for a ride or rent a bike

Nice is a very pleasant city to explore on foot or by bike. Many places of interest, such as the Promenade des Anglais, Vieux Nice and the Parc de la Colline du Château, are within easy walking distance. For longer trips, you can rent a bike or an electric scooter.

Eat local

By eating in local restaurants serving Niçoise cuisine, you support the local economy and reduce the carbon footprint of your food. What’s more, Nice dishes are often prepared with fresh, local ingredients, which is better for the environment.

Watch your water consumption

Water is a precious resource, especially in the south of France where the climate is Mediterranean. Try to minimize your water consumption by taking quick showers, reusing your towels and not letting the water run unnecessarily.

Leave no trace

When visiting beaches, parks or other natural areas, make sure you leave no trace. This means taking all your garbage with you and avoiding disturbing the flora and fauna.

Choose eco-friendly accommodation

More and more hotels in Nice are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact. This can include using renewable energy, reducing water consumption, recycling and providing eco-friendly toiletries.


By following these tips, you can help protect the environment and make your stay in Nice more sustainable.
