Since 2008, the City of Nice has been showing a strong desire to give all those who want to enjoy their retirement, the opportunity to fully live this time. 25,000 Nice seniors benefit from the actions implemented by the Delegation of Seniors and 17,000 Nice Seniors enjoy “Senior Pass” and “Nice Plus senior” cards. The “Nice Plus senior” card, free and easy to use, allows Seniors to benefit from many preferential prices in nearly 350 partners, merchants and organizations.
