I know the ridiculous ticket prices probably kept quite a few fans away. But who is going? Maybe some of you are from the area? Any tips on what to do or where to eat/stay in Nice? I'd love to meet up with fellow skating fans!
I am going! I am quite near Nice since i live in the north of Italy. I am not following the entire event, i am going to be there on thursday to saturday. I know Nice a little bit and I am going to do a sort of skating fan guide on my blog soon. The problem about where to eat is not secondary in my view. You can spend A LOT in restaurants like 50 euros per person. Anyway there are a lot of pubs and stuff like that. I really really suggest to buy something in a boulangerie (bakery) for lunch or speady meal, there are a lot of yummy things like quiches or special breads. I even know one very near the ice palace :D
I am going too I've never been to Nice or worlds before so I've been looking forward to this for a while.
Someone I know is going. Could you give me any details (address/directions)) of good reasonable places to eat? Thank you

figureskate, the blog looks great, thanks! That lovely bakery for lunch sounds like a plan
I have a question and you might be the perfect person to ask: Is it realistic to try to go somewhere in Italy from Nice by public transport?! And I can only spend morning till 2pm ish to be to catch the final two groups of the day sessions. Crazy idea but I hear there're are beautiful villages like Cervo and I'd love to visit!
It is so lovely that you would like to go to Cervo, it is quite an amazing village and the coast is so beautiful. It is not that crazy, I recommend to stay on the western part of Liguria, so you don't have to spend much time on a train (that is the fastest way of travelling in your case). It takes more or less an hour and a half going to Cervo, 45 minutes from Nice to Ventimiglia (or Ventimille in French) and 45 from there to Cervo (you have to change train on the frontier).
