Ah… Nice! The most beautiful city we have visited so far in the South of France (or maybe in all of France?).
Don’t get me wrong, Cannes was also very beautiful, but the Vieux Nice is simply the most picturesque part of France with its charming narrow streets and colorful buildings, a fusion between the Italian dolce vista (think Positano) and the elegant French touch.
Diogo and I finished our Cote d’Azur itinerary with a couple of days in Nice – the biggest city in the French Riviera.
I’m not a big fan of the beaches in the South of France (who goes there for the beaches anyway?): Nice has a huge coastline with many beach lounges but the water is so cold and there is no sand but small rocks. But we go there for so many other reasons!
Nice is a very old and historical city, mainly the Vieux Nice which is where the majority of those pictures where taken.
If you go to the French Riviera, don’t skip Nice! There is so much to visit and do! From shopping, to get lost around and enjoy their great food (we actually found many good vegan restaurants there)!
After Nice, it was time to take our flight back to Malta.
Bye Cote d’Azur! We loved to have spent these 17 days with you! Can’t wait to come back next year and visit other incredible parts of the French Riviera (from Antibes, Cap-Ferrat, Villefranche-sur-mer, etc.)!
