The summer is well and truly over in Nice. The days are getting shorter and there is a nip in the air during the evening that means that those nights that we can enjoy dining outside are numbered.

However, for some, autumn is the most charming time of year and can certainly be in the running for the most beautiful season. The red leaves on the trees, the golden glow of the brush and those sunsets that turn the world the pink and purple, this might just be the city of Nice at its best.

There's lots going on in Nice in October, these are just some of the events taking place here this month.

Les Gourmand'Eze

The small town of Eze, just a 20-minute ride from Nice, is celebrating its annual gastronomic festival, Les Gourmand'Eze. This year, the food festival is dedicated to the relationship between chefs and people. The special guest is Chef Patrick Bertron of the two-Michelin-starred La Cote d'Or restaurant in Saulieu.

Classical Music

The Opera de Nice will celebrate the start of the 2019/20 season with concerts and ballet performances. They will also bring its music outside with a free classical concert by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Nice in Place Saint Roch, in the heart of the city, on October 15th.

Nice Short Film Festival

Now in its 19th year, the Nice Short Film festival is a much-anticipated event in the European cinematic calendar and has become a popular rendezvous for young creators. Hosted in several of Nice's prestigious venues including the MAMAC, Rialto Cinema and the National Theatre, the program of short films will bring some 170 works to members of the public. 

Book a Hotel


Throughout the month of October, the markets of Nice will be keeping you supplied with seasonal produce and the delicious smells of peppery socca and chestnuts roasting. The antique book fair allows you to browse the selection of novels and enjoy a coffee in one of Nice's most popular squares, whilst at the Puces de Nice you'll find second-hand gems.
