Crime & Safety

Like any other holiday destination, visitors to Nice should watch out for pickpockets in busy touristic places, and scams that may involve people distracting a traveller while someone is stealing from them. In 2016, Nice was a target of a terrorist attack, therefore, visitors must stay alert, especially in crowded places.


Visitors should be aware that on google, a couple of places might come up as hospitals when in fact they are not the best places to go during an emergency because some have closed gates with buzzers. The most well known big hospitals are Hospital Pasteur, a general hospital on Voie Romaine; Lenval Foundation, a children's hospital located at 57 Avenue de la Californie; Hospital L'archet, a women’s hospital located at 151 Route de Saint-Antoine; and Hospital Cimiez, a general hospital on Avenue Reine Victoria.
