Find the cheapest flight to Nice
The Cote d’Azur International Airport (airport code NCE) in Nice only ranks behind the Paris airports in terms of importance for France. Additionally, because it is located so close to Monaco it also serves as the Monaco airport. The airport is on the Promenade des Anglais, making it easy to get into Nice itself and its placement often provides lovely views of the Cote d’Azur from arriving and departing planes.

More Information on Nice
Nice is one of those must-see stops on any backpacker’s itinerary – partly because it has some nice museums, a pretty castle and a lovely Russian Orthodox cathedral, but mostly because even backpackers need some time relaxing on a Mediterranean beach at some point in their journey. “Roughing it” does not have to mean depriving yourself! Nice is the perfect base for exploring the Cote d’Azur as well as parts of Provence, too. And if you have money coming out of your ears (or even if you do not), there is nothing like a day trip to the nearby city-state of Monaco for a look at how the other half lives.
