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.

    My favourote city

    Nice never fails, from the beautiful clear blue sea to the markets and of course the weather. I've been here a number of Times and love walking around the French streets and such easy access to Italy and beyond.

    Insider Tip:Walk up to the chateaux at sunset, great view. Get the quick trains to Monaco and Italy. (San remo) is a must. The market starts at 6pm until midnight which has some unique buys. You may come by some rude French people...this is normal!

    Nice is nice.

    Great small city in and of itself, with stunning views and plenty of places to relax. Even better is using it as a base for day trips to the surrounding area, such as Cannes, Monaco and so on.

    Summer holiday trip

    Beautiful city with a multitude of activities. A bit expensive sometimes but some things like the fresh farmers market fruit were well worth it. Many activities and easy access to Monaco. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing enjoyable stay.

    Insider Tip:Fresh fruit at the market! Apply sunscreen! Go to Monaco!

    Nice is so nice

    Ah, Nice. As far as sight seeing goes, Nice doesn't have a whole lot of attractions other than a couple of churches and art museums. I spent most of my time intentionally getting lost in the streets of the old town and enjoying the little food stands, which I really enjoyed. They also have a very nice park/flower garden close to the old town which is a great place to eat lunch. It's also very peaceful to take a stroll along the sidewalk above the beach while munching on some freshly made crepes.

    Insider Tip:Nice is obviously a tourist spot, so the prices on everything are jacked up. Groceries are pretty expensive and so is eating out, so if you have access to a kitchen try to make meals that you can have leftovers of like spaghetti. The bus is the cheapest way to go to Monaco if you want to take a day trip there (the beaches are nicer), and it leaves from the port.
