Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur General: 63 reviews and 63 photos


Favorite thing: Nice, the biggest city on the Cote d'Azur (not counting Marseille, of course), is a really pleasant place to visit. It has the trappings of a large town - great shopping, large open plazas, a vibrant nightlife - and retains a certain charm that I don't think you can find in Cannes. Everywhere in Nice is pretty. the beach may be made of stones, but it is one of the most archetypal Mediterranean scenes. There are top notch hotels such as the pink-domed Negresco, but good affordable quality can be found for the budget traveller not far from the beach. It's also a great location from which to visit the surrounding areas, including Monaco, and is not far from Italy...
