Bonjour from the Cote d’Azur! During our latest European excursion we visited fell in love with Nice (pronounced “niece”), a stunning cosmopolitan hub along the French Riviera. After a long weekend exploring palm-tree lined streets, pebble beaches, delectable cuisine and vibrant nightlife, we were sad to say goodbye. Though we’d probably be content with any Mediterranean coastline getaway, this city’s panache left us yearning for more. And since we’re already planning our return, we wanted to provide a must stay/see/eat/do compilation for a first time traveler.

Stay…

See…

  • the best view in Nice (and a waterfall!) at the Parc de la Colline Chateau; bring fruit, cheese and wine for a picnic.
  • the daily market in Cours Saleya, famous for its exquisite fresh flowers. Come on Monday if you prefer to catch the flea/antiques market.
  • the entire coastline on the “Cliff Walk“: several hundred steps along the coast beginning at Coco Beach, following the Sentier Littoral all the way around the Cap de Nice.
  • Nice’s botanical garden, Parc Pheonix.

Eat…

Go out…

Shop…

  • for hundreds of herbs, spices, bath salts, scented soaps, and teas at Lou Pantai.
  • for caviar, olive oil, tapenades, jam, biscuits and aperitifs at Lou Canice.
  • for gourmet chocolates at L’Art Gourmand and drink a rich hot chocolate in their upstairs lounge.
  • for candied fruit,  crystallized flowers, flavored honey, nuts, calissons and flower liquors at Confiserie Florian.

Visit…

  • Cannes on a weekend for swanky restaurants and nightlife.
  • Monaco to see Princess Grace’s castle, and to try your luck at the Grand Casino (you’ll need a passport to enter and a formal dress code is enforced).
  • St. Agnes to get a panoramic view from the highest coastal point in all of Europe.
  • Grasse for a guided perfumery tour.

Start each meal with a Kir Royal and a thoughtful toast, have quiche Lorraine for breakfast, Salad Nicoise for lunch and Moules-Frites for dinner with friends. Sunbathe topless (if you dare) and spend your days floating weightlessly in the salty, blue sea. Most importantly, pay close attention while observing the French way of life so you can carry their effortless style and grace home with you. Now all you need is a French mani, a toy poodle, an itsy bitsy bikini, a perfect evening dress, a classic handbag and you’re all set.

Bon voyage!
