Local Information

Social Program

There will be no social program directly organized by the Conference. Indeed Nice and its surrounding are very rich: there are plenty of museum, gardens, special buildings in the town itself. We provide here only useful links:

  • Nice tourism office: plenty of information on where to stay, what to see in Nice or in the vicinity, what is on...
  • provide useful links


The air average temperature in Nice in September is 20.5 degree Celsius (68.9 Fahrenheit) and the sea temperature is 22.5 degree Celsius (72.5 Fahrenheit). Usually we have a sunny September.

Food and restaurants around Acropolis

Although there are some restaurants in the direct vicinity of Acropolis it may be better to walk to the Old Town that offers a very large choice of restaurants. Turn right when exiting Acropolis, cross Rue Barla , walk 100 meters and turn left. When you have reached Place Garibaldi look at the narrow streets at your right hand-side, close to the "Cafe Turin", this is the beginning of the Old Town.
