Ho Ho Ho ! Santa's coming to town !

Ho Ho Ho ! Santa's coming to town !

Spooky season is barely over and we're already digging out our old Mariah Carey CD. 

We haven't finished getting goosebumps (but this time from the cold)!


As it does every year, the City of Nice is renewing its commitment to promoting Nice's retailers by providing them with a free chalet in the Christmas Village. As usual, it will be set up in the Albert 1st Garden and Place Masséna from December 7th 2023 to January 7th 2024.

Around sixty exhibitors will be waiting for you this winter in their charming chalets : shopkeepers, craftsmen, artists and producers will be offering their products and expertise to visitors of this Christmas market!


On the agenda : musical entertainment, traditional carols, sweet treats, elves and SANTA (of course)! Come and meet him : he'll be delighted to welcome the children and show them their wish list. When he's resting, you can still visit his house and leave a note in his letterbox ;)

On site, you'll also find a Ferris wheel offering a 360-degree view of the centre of Nice, with a glimpse of the sea ; as well as a carrousel and inflatable structures for children.
