Take to the skies in Nice, the cosmopolitan capital of the Côte d'Azur, on a 20-minute sightseeing helicopter ride. Following the lead of international celebrities who flock to the city by helicopter, cruise over Nice’s ultra-glamorous hotels, the Promenade des Anglais, Belle Epoque buildings and, of course, the crystal-clear azure sea.


  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Qualified and professional pilot
  • Scenic helicopter flight
Check in at Nice airport with plenty of time to spare, then board your Squirrel single-engine helicopter and head to the skies above the French Riviera! Your friendly pilot will keep you entertained with commentary about all the captivating sights on the ground below.

As you soar over the crystal-clear waters of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, enjoy a bird’s-eye view of this wealthy French peninsula. See beach-goers lounging under parasols on the sun-drenched sand, and the beautiful Belle Epoque buildings that typify Nice oh-so-nicely.

Arguably the most famous of these Belle Epoque-era buildings is the palatial Hôtel Negresco that majestically juts out on the Promenade des Anglais. Your helicopter will pass straight over this luxury hotel, affording fantastic views of its distinctive steep-sided mansard roof and domed tower.

Pass over Nice Old Town (Vielle Ville), the city’s most ancient quarter, home to the lively Cours Saleya Flower Market. From the air, you’ll make out its delightful maze of narrow streets punctuated by tall buildings and leafy trees.

After 20 minutes of cruising the skies, your helicopter will land back at the helipad. When you’ve disembarked a host will direct you out, leaving you with unforgettable memories of your glamorous sightseeing experience in Nice!

A lot of money but well worth it and the pilot was brilliant, took us where we wanted and what we wanted to see. Would definitely use Viator again. A real buzz!!!

Reviewed by: Diane F, June 2014

We highly recommend and thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Viator made us feel very secure with regular communication and reminders of what we needed prior to the day. Heli-Monaco were very professional and went out of their way to ensure we had a streamlined checking in process and our pilot was informative, entertaining pointing out specific areas of interest. We were not rushed at all and have heaps of photos, so If you are going to Nice and want to see the coastline of the entire French Riviera from the air, you MUST do this tour.
