Fly from Nice to Amsterdam

for a city break along the canals

Fly away to the land of tulips

Nice and Amsterdam are very different cities. One is Latin, the other northern. While Nice is lulled by the rhythm of the waves, life in Amsterdam flows with the smooth waters of the canals. However, there is reciprocal friendship and esteem between the jewel of the Côte d’Azur and the Venice of the Netherlands. This is embodied by the many direct Nice-Amsterdam flights taking off from the Baie des Anges every week. What are their passengers looking for? A tranquil, refined and liberated city, and an unusual atmosphere that makes a break in Amsterdam flying from Nice a unique experience.

    Arriving at Amsterdam airport

    You will land at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Despite being one of Europe’s largest airports, all of its activities are within a single terminal.
    Built to the south-west of Amsterdam, Schiphol is less than 20 kilometres from the Dutch capital.

    To get to the city centre, you can use:

    • The train, which is the least expensive option and the fastest way of getting to the city centre (15 to 20 minutes). It runs 24 hours a day.
    • A public bus. Buses 370 and 197 go to the south and centre of Amsterdam. Between midnight and 05:00, you will need to take night bus 97 or 358.
    • A taxi. Expensive, but convenient and comfortable. The challenge is finding one that’s available! We recommend booking online before you arrive.
    • A shared car with the car2go service: small, self-service electric cars, which can be hired by the minute, like the “Autos Bleues” in Nice. It works out at half the price of a taxi, and is very eco-friendly. Find one at Schiphol’s World Trade Centre car park.
    • A hire car. The car hire desks are located in Hall 3 in the Arrivals area.
    • The Schiphol Hotel Shuttle: guests at around a hundred Amsterdam hotels can pay to use this service. Tickets online or on the bus.

What to do in
Amsterdam ?

All the surveys agree: Amsterdam is one of the coolest cities in the world, and one of the safest. Visitors can enjoy the city day and night, without worrying, travelling between its sights and museums by tram, by metro, on foot or by bike. However, despite its tranquillity, the city has its crazy side. Liberal, wild, young and dynamic, the capital of the Kingdom of the Netherlands knows how to party, and is famous for its wild nightclubs.

    Amsterdam is half angel, half demon. Depending on your personality and how you feel, you can choose to succumb to either influence. Or both! Why not? However, you’ll need to be fit, because much like New York, the Venice of the North (a name for which Amsterdam competes with Bruges!) never sleeps.
    Amsterdam’s calmer side is great for a holiday as a couple or family. Live like the locals, exploring by bike to discover picturesque alleyways and canals. Laze around on the grass in the Vondelpark, a 48-hectare park with cafés, restaurants and free concerts. You can also visit famous museums, such as the Rijksmuseum, home to Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” and Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid”, as well as many more unusual museums: the Museum of Bags and Purses (Tassenmuseum Hendrikje), Micropia with its collection of microbes, the Kattenkabinet (devoted to works depicting cats)…
    If you’ve come for a lively holiday alone or with friends, you’re in for a full weekend of partying. Explore De Wallen, Amsterdam’s famous red light district, to see the city at its most brazen. Enjoy a beer, a big local speciality, in a brown café at borrel time (Amsterdam’s answer to the aperitif). At night, dance at the best clubs in the birth city of Martin Garrix, one of today’s top DJs.
