Hotel Florence Nice commits every day for the respect of the environment, the promotion of responsible tourism and defends a green and authentic image. For the 1st edition of the « MAIF Relais Sport Planète », it just makes sense for our 3-star hotel to get involved with this committed sporting event whose aim is to raise awareness about waste reduction. The goal, with this event, is to follow the symbolic route of a waste thrown into the mountains and landing in the open sea. Its mission is to unite athletes around the protection of the environment, by making a large human chain.

Professional and amateur athletes gather for 10 days in 10 different cities around this giant relay race combining different sports practices (like running, cycling, swimming…) to work hand in hand to stop this harmful habit for the planet.

« The calculated performance will be neither metric nor chronometric but environmental. It will be measured by the number of sensitised people, in the minimalism of the organisation, the pooling of resources, the use of the short circuit in order to reach a point of salvation where HUMAN HEALTH = Health of the Planet » indicate the organisers of the relay race.


Program of the last stop in Nice 

After 10 days for the planet with the crossing of 10 cities of France, the final arrival of the « MAIF Relais Sport Planète » is planned at the National Museum of Sport in Nice with on site :

  • At 11 :30 am : inauguration of the permanent exhibition « Sport Planete »
  • From 12 pm : projection of the film « Du Sommet à la Mer » (diffusion every 45 min) and conference with Thomas Fanari on the theme of waste and sustainable development
  • From 2 pm : eco-games = workshops and ecological, recreational and sporting activities on the theme of waste
Free access to museum activities and exhibitions throughout the day

Do as some of the relay racers and organisers of the committed relay race and choose a hotel that worries every day to minimise its impact on the environment.

Do not hesitate and book your stay quickly, in a hotel that takes care of you and the planet !


More than a place, it’s a story !

Did you know ?

450 is the number of years it takes a plastic bag to desintegrate in the environment.

An international study conducted by the University of Kyushu (Japan) estimates 24 400 billion, the amount of microplastics present in our oceans (Natura Sciences, September 24 , 2021). Ifremer institute had already proved last year that 58% of the anchovies and sardines of the Mediterranean sea were contaminated with plastic, the same ones that we can find in our pizzas.
