The gateway to the French Riviera, Nice is just a springboard away from Cannes,Monaco,Saint-Paul de Vence, Saint-Tropez.
Nice or Nizza as the locals know it with its unusual mix of real-city grit,old-world opulence,year-round sunshine and exceptional location, Nice’s appeal is universal. Everyone from backpackers to romance-seeking couples and families will love sitting at a cafe on cours Saleya in old town or a bench on the legendary Promenade des Anglais (the sea side).
Along with its style and charm, Nice is also steeped in history and is one of France’s oldest cities.
The most important thing with Nice is not to allow the area’s wealth to intimidate you to visit this place.While there is a lot of it around, and even though you may be on the tightest budget, you will still be able to enjoy your stay here to maximum effect.
The Old Town of Nice (Vieux Nice) is one of the city’s main attractions and a must-see for any visitor… Not because of a huge amount of historical sites, but because it is buzzing both day and night, which is ideal to wander the lanes and soak up the atmosphere,to get lost in and enjoy the mediterranean vibe (have to eat baguette,omg i already miss it).
Old town is such a delight to explore on foot.As well as many beautiful buildings and squares.Wandering around a town and exploring hidden corners is one of my favourite things to do, and Nice Old Town is a great place to do that.There are plenty of small boutiques, patiseries,cafes,restaurants and galleries.We spend as much time as we could here so that we got lost in the maze of streets and not worry about getting anywhere else in a hurry.
My favourite place was Castle Hill-Colline du Chateau,a walking distance from old town up on the hill.It is hard to describe what it feels like to visit Castle Hill.At the top of the hill you will find a waterfall and the castle ruins.You can also take some of the best photographs from up here of the entire Nice area and perhaps, a little beyond.
I got lost in the beautiful,breathtaking view of the city.
