Nice is very nice, you can spend a couple of days to visit the city. Actually, you should visit the whole coastline starting in Menton and go west. The countryside along the coast is often forgotten, do visit the villages off-shore and all the little roads.

As mentioned in my France homepage, I chose Nice as my Côte d'Azur region anchor city. The region is located completly South East of France and continue with the Italian Riviera.

It is a magnificent region, the weather is very clement, the people have it great. It is a very popular vacation area for France and other, so going there right in the vacation period will give you headaches. Having trouble placing a towel on the beach because of the crowd is not my idea of a vacation. If you are like me and you can swim in sub-zero water (no, no I meant 70 degF and less) the beach are less crowded in May-June and September-October and still magnificient.
