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.

    Quick Trip to Nice

    I did typical things for a tourist. I went to the Cours Saleya and the market behind it (on Saturdays) at the Place du Palais de Justice which happened to be a book and postcard market (perfect for me). I also took the trek up to Castle Hill where a man was playing the accordion. How nice! Everywhere I read said to visit Fenocchio (an ice cream shop), but unfortunately it was closed (maybe for the season?). Walking through Old Nice was very nice, as well.

    Insider Tip:Socca is a food unique to Nice. It's kind of like a chickpea pancake or savory crepe. Wasn't my favorite but definitely worth a try.

    Beautiful City of Nice, France

    Lovely and exciting city to visit in France. I would suggest to anyone going to France to visit Nice. There are so many beautiful places to visit like cote d azur, French Riviera, Nice Mascena a town square nearby with lovely shopping stores and tourist train to go around the city. Visit their neighbor Italy .I went as far as San Remo in Italy, just passed Monacco. Loved the entire trip and walked along their harbor, Morgana Bay. Beautiful ships and breathless sea view then back to Nice.

    Insider Tip:Travel light and make sure you keep your train ticket safe.

    a break after work

    I went to Nice in the beginning of November. The weather is nice and warm. People have a very cozy life. I like watching people running or fishing along the beach in the early morning. The sunrise and sunset are amazing. I don't feel bored even just sitting on the bench along the beach. You can enjoy the musicians playing the violins and singing. In contrast, Monaco and Cannes are not so much fun, but it is still worthy one day trip if you have enough time.

    Perfect weather the whole time we were there, no clouds at all even in November, sun was shining and weather was very good! We enjoyed staying in the off season as there were less tourists crowding the beach while the weather was still perfect.
