Nice Carnival – Travel trade

The flagship event of the Côte d’Azur in winter, one of the largest Carnivals in the world, offers a programme of unforgettable shows… Corsi Carnavalesques, Illuminated Corsi Carnavalesques, Flower Battles… An explosion of colours and music!

“Carnival is the most popular cultural event that a country can experience”.

Jorge Amado, Brazilian writer, 1912 – 2001

The largest event on the Côte d’Azur in winter, the Nice Carnival justifies a stay in Nice. Internationally renowned, it attracts hundreds of thousands of French and international spectators each year, generating nearly 30 million euros in economic benefits.

A not-to-be-missed event in the City of Nice and the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolitan Area, the Nice Carnival is the leading Carnival in France and one of the most famous in the world, along with the Carnivals of Rio and Venice.

The Carnival period, in addition to its festivities, offers a wonderful opportunity to discover Nice in winter: the mildness of the climate, the luminosity of the sky and the art of living on the Côte d’Azur will complete your programme which is already rich in confetti and emotions!
