What people are saying about Nice

An excellent moment with a top guide who made us discover Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco with our hair in the wind. We were all delighted including the girls (13 years old) and our son (soon to be 7 years old). See you next year

Tickets € 30 each for Marineland which is a beautiful aquarium where the shows are done very well. The park is well served with toilet and refreshment points and very convenient from the motorway exit. Ample parking € 9 all day.

Great experience. My kids loved it and the host was very nice and patient with the kids

Absolutely loved it. Didn’t expect to be that impressed with a bunch of sea creatures
