Quai des États-Unis, 06300 Nice, France
Believe it or not, this was a day in Nice in early January—the middle of winter! Not sure if we were just lucky that day, but it was dazzling and picture perfect. Walking (or rollerblading) along the promenade was a perfect way to spend a lazy...
11 Quai Rauba Capeu, 06300 Nice, France
Nice International Airport is the second busiest gateway in France so the city isn’t exactly the quiet, idyllic little fishing village that some people imagine it to be. The mile-long beach is jammed with elegant hotels and Louis Vuitton-toting...

Place Massena, Nice, France
The popular shopping center in Nice is at the Place Massena. You will know you arrived there when you stepped on the checkered tiles. From there, you can explore the near by streets for more stores as well. The better part is that the tram goes...

Declared a national historic building in 2003, Hotel Le Negresco is also the last remaining privately-owned luxury palace hotel in France and has reigned over Nice’s Bay of Angels through two world wars and 16 French presidents. Millionaires,...
8 Quai des États-Unis, 06300 Nice, France
SUCH a great beach. You have to pay to get in but it's so worth it. The water is gorgeous and the people totally unassuming. The coolest thing is that it's right at the bottom of the busiest road in Nice. The only bad part is that the rocks are a...
22 Avenue Gravier, 06100 Nice, France
If you're used to non-luxurious hostels, Villa Saint Exupery's rooms at the Garden Hostel (there's also a Beach) don't need to be described. Both their dorms and their private rooms are like a standard setup from uni or college (depending on your...
Avenue Nicolas II, 06000 Nice, France
Located in the center of Nice, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral is a must visit during your stay in Nice. The architecture is very stand out from the rest of the buildings in the city. It's a quiet area surrounded by tall trees. While you are...
10 Rue de la Paix, 06360 Èze, France
A maze of narrow medieval streets wind up and down this village perched along the Grande Corniche. The ruins of a château are now an exotic garden, and the 18th-century neoclassical Notre Dame of the Assumption church is a national monument....
Monte Carlo, Monaco-Ville, Monaco
Each morning on board the Azamara Journey, a boutique, luxury cruising experience, I would awake to a knock on the door: my room service. But instead of breakfast in bed, I would have my breakfast on my gorgeous balcony, overlooking the view of...
12 Rue de la Préfecture, 06000 Nice, France
While living down the street at Lycée Massena, I made daily visits to Lac. My coworker and I developed a wonderful relationship with the staff at this lovely pâtisserie. We soon learned that Lac sells slightly broken macaroons for a discounted...
1 Rue du Jésus, 06000 Nice, France
In Nice, gnocchi is made with potatoes and wheat flour. This traditional dish is a favorite in the region, and is often served with daube, a sauce made with wine and meat. Gesu serves the best gnocchi in town. These little dumplings melt in the...
06320 Cap-d'Ail, France
I took a bus from my hostel in Nice to this little town called Cap D'ail. Across from the bus station I saw a sign for what seemed like a trail. I crossed the road and down the stairs, through a tunnel and voila, discovered a path that hugs the...
32 Prom. des Anglais, 06000 Nice, France
It was a great sunny day, after a walk along Nice's pebble beach, we found this restaurant facing the waves. The lunch Manu was very simple yet still very hard to just pick one dish. It's the first time I tried the raw artichoke salad (beside...
41 Quai des États-Unis, 06300 Nice, France
What’s this about a pool when the Mediterranean’s only steps away? Simply put, the piscine you’ll enjoy here at ARK on the Quai des États-Unis is a whole other kind of refreshing: a large, bulbous stemmed glass, a generous pour of the region’s...
