Introducing Nice


With neighbors like the aristocratic Monaco, glitzy Cannes, and the fun-loving St. Tropez, Nice is one of the French Riviera's most charming cities, and each February plays host to an incredible carnival. The city also offers some of the best southern French cuisine you can get, and is full of Micheline starred restaurants. On the narrow streets of the city you'll find buildings painted in pastel tones, balconies decorated with flowers and window shutters of brilliant turquoise. As you stroll around, you might like to pick up a pouch of dried lavender or a bottle of homemade olive oil to remember your trip by.
