Perfect holiday: Nice, je t’aime!
The city considered the capital of Côte d’Azur and often called “Nice La Belle”, “Nice the Beautiful” is not “just” no “may”, not “do not know what to say,” a story. A French story that you want to live again and again, not only as a minor character
, or visitors. I’d be very curious to know how many tourists have arrived at the airport, at check-in the end, thinking “what I would have liked this place to be my home.” And how often have dreamed back then.
If you rather people of the mountain, do not rush to turn over – Mediterranean seaside town has it all, is only the Alps Maritimes. In an hour or so of Nice (that way you can make for a bus ticket 1 euro) give more ski resorts, such as Auron, and if skies are clear, even now, if you walk around the city around you see the snow mountains. Well, now that we have captured all the attention, to get to the presentation.
Walking on the Côte d’Azur
The fifth largest city of France wins the first steps. Challenging our holiday smiles and we remain imprinted in my mind various colors of the Mediterranean in the morning, the charming old town (Vieux Nice), cute shuttered buildings, the port’s atmosphere, restaurants compete in flavors of the famous “cuisine” museums with famous works (Riviera only he liked so many famous painters who loved her so much that they moved with her dog, pig, horse and brilliant ideas, Picasso is just an example) souvenir shops in which we gladly give half salary, a Romanian high Negresco hotel 100 years ago.
Nice is so well positioned that the 30 minutes you can be in Monaco, the other 30 in Antibes (a great place, great love of Picasso which has a museum there), in 45 minutes from Cannes, in one hour and a half from Saint-Tropez, where you nostalgic after gendarme Founes Louis and throughout the 90 minutes in Aix-en-Provence (those with fields of lavender pictures here are made). So you can establish camp in Nice and from here you can wander all the wonders of a sure-safe areas will take to heart.
Speaking of public transportation is excellent here and the ticket costs 1 euro regardless of destination (a neighborhood or town nearby). Enjoy! The food is really good in the old and a little bit cheaper than the new center, which is Rue de France, a street full of restaurants. Before you sit down read the menu if “service compris”.
Shellfish are excellent (about 11 euros a large pot with chips as garnish), as seafood (which can reach plateau but at 100-200 euros). Socca is a traditional meal (a pancake that comes with various salt additions, including salads in restaurants), and Nicole salad – easy and delicious – must also be checked.
It’s good to know that …
Nice beach is “Pebble Beach” type, that is, unfortunately, with stones. Of course, there are chairs, but costs a fortune from a lot depending on location. Better Board the bus and go 10 to 15 minutes surroundings (Villefranche sur Mer, Antibes etc.), Where you can sand beaches and a little friendly prices.
