Images Of Nice

Capital of France's illustrious Côte d'Azur, Nice is, if you'll pardon the expression, nice. The city's best known strip, Promenade des Anglais, boasts amazing views of the city and overlooks Nice's rocky beaches, making it a haven for sun worshippers. But don't worry if lying motionless on your back isn't your thing. Nice has fascinating museums, one of Europe's most charming old towns, while it is also the gateway to the rest of the Côte d'Azur, meaning both Cannes and Monaco are right on your doorstep.

    It's a resort town

    I generally like to go to places where I can meet local people, but Nice is a resort that attracts people (especially students on Spring Break) from all over the world.

    Insider Tip:Definitely go and ride the bus to Monaco. It's an inexpensive way to get a great view of the coast.

    Nice is nice.

    It was a beautiful city with a lot of young people and great restaurants. Very pricey, but it is what you would expect. Gorgeous beach. I was there for Carnaval so the parade was really extravagant and fun- unlike any other parade I've been to.

    Insider Tip:Save up money!

    Chilled out

    Easily one of the best cities to just sit and people watch. Night life never really builds to a full vibe but thats ok because you can sit and watch the world go by.

    Insider Tip:Avoid nightclubs at all costs, unless cost is infact not an issue! Pricey!

    Lots to explore

    It depends on the time of year you go to Nice. I went end of Feb. I was told the Nice Carnival was on. I found Nice to be very interesting with loads of places to explore. You could easily walk for miles and get lost in Nice, but this is the fun bit. There is a lot of choice in terms of where to eat. Loads of restaurant choices. Getting around was very easy. Trams going by every 4-5 mins with the local station right in the centre of Nice.

    Nice was definitely beautiful, especially coming from snowing Norway and a rainy UK but you could probably tackle most of what it has to offer in a day. The people are lovely and there are lots of places to buy cheap but good food and wine (I never paid more than 3€ for wine and never went wrong - thank you France)

    Insider Tip:Waynes bar is great if you are young and travelling, especially if you have a few friends with you. They pretty much expect you to dance and stomp on their tables in the back. They also usually have a live band playing.
