Provenza-Alpi-Costa Azzurra Comments

Nizza is amazingly beautiful and full of things to do. You can wander the streets in search or the Russian Cathedral and encounter many beautiful parks and buildings on the way. You can also spend a lot of time in Villa Nice (Old Nice)..its amazing...every morning and evening during the summer there is a flower market where the farmers from the surrounding area come in and sell fruit, plants, flowers, candy, fish, spices, and many other unique items. The streets are lined with beautiful little shops and outdoor cafes and walking along the beach is great. It is very rocky but the views are amazing. Be sure to climb up the ruins of an old castle for some of the most beautiful pictures youll ever take. It is also extremely easy to get to Canne, Villefranche, Monaco and Menton. We went to different places each day and would return to Nice each evening to eat outside under heat lamps in the cafes. Canne has sandy beaches if that is what you are looking for, Menton is known for…
After spending two nights in Nizza, I don't know why anyone would want to spend their money and energy on such a dirty, noisy, busy, overpriced city, with a rocky beach and nothing to see or do. We spent our time in Monaco instead. Before you make Nice a stop on your trip, ask yourself why you are going. If you want to lounge around on the beach, try one of the quieter, neighboring cities with sandy beaches.
Postcard perfect sceneries. The train is a marvelous mode of travel. Although my French is very limited, there were kind souls who helped along the way. The best memories include watching the yachts bobbing in the aqua meditranean sea from the top of the old castle in Nizza, the garden in Monaco, the Picasso museum in Antibe, and the seaside in Cannes. I also treasure the train ride back from Monaco at night, along the coast, watching the moonlight rippling on the sea. We did all the daytrips spontaneously and every one of them turned out to be beautiful. The only surprise was the pebbly beach in Nice and the chilly water. It was interesting but a bit of a let down as in tropical coastal Malaysia, our beaches are sandy and the water warm. But one should go to Nice not for the beaches but for the ambience, the French, the food, and the charming old towns and cobblestoned streets. I am planning to return to Nice in January 2006 to recapture some of the magic with new friends!
I loved it -- real Nizza place. The people did not really know much English, but nonetheless it was welcoming, safe, and had very nice balconies to look upon the streets. There was a bit of a walk to the beach, but hey we all need a little exercise every now and then and it helped to see the area. Nice rules!
I found my way to Cassis ten years ago and have never forgotten the experience.
Nizza is a lovely city! A walk on the promenade by the beach at night is a must, as all sorts of street entertainers populate this place at night! Day trips I would recommend are to Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, and St. Tropez.
