Carnival of Nice

Palais de la Méditerranée, the luxurious hotel located on the famous Promenade des Anglais in Nice, introduces you to one of the best and most beautiful carnivals in the world. The Carnival of Nice has indeed become a regional institution and a reference around the globe. The first Carnival parade was created at the Cours Saleya where the famous flowers market of Nice takes place every day (except Mondays).

Every year, the city lives to the rhythm of Carnival of Nice events. The height of the celebrations is reached with the parade of pageant floats decorated with flowers (the “corso fleuri”) on the Place Masséna and the famous battle of flowers on the Promenade des Anglais, a few steps away from the Palais de la Mediterranee. This battle is a local tradition which was spread to other towns of the Côte d’Azur and later around the world. According to it, people have to exchange flowers during the Carnival celebrations. That is how the Carnival of Nice has also inspired the Carnival of Rio in Brazil.

During the Carnival of Nice in February/March, staying at our luxury hotel allows you to make the most of this unique event. The Palais de la Méditerranée is located a stone’s throw from the places where the parades take place.
