Nice has a large international airport which serves the whole of the Cote d Azur. If you are flying to France find the best deals on flights.We drove down to Nice via Calais it is a long drive about 750 miles.You can take the expensive toll roads straight to the sea front.Or like we did use the A roads and stay two nights B&B you see a lot more the cost is about the same.It all depends of how much time you have.

Visiting Nice is a great way to experience all the beauty of the French Riviera. From the stunning beaches and promenades along the coast to the quaint old town and its charming streets, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Start your visit with a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais, the main promenade along the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy the sun, sand and surf while admiring the views of the bay and the old city. Take a break at one of the many restaurants or cafes offering al fresco dining along the promenade.

Continue your visit to the old city of Nice. Take a leisurely walk through the narrow cobblestone streets and admire the colorful buildings and the old churches. Stop for a bite at one of the many cafes and restaurants. Be sure to try some of the local specialties, such as the famous socca (chickpea pancakes).

For a break from the city, take a trip to the nearby coastal towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer or Antibes. Explore the quaint old towns and their shops, cafes and restaurants. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the beautiful beaches and scenery along the coast.

After a day of sightseeing and exploring, head back to the city for a night of music and entertainment. Enjoy a night out at one of the many bars and clubs. Or take in a show at the Opera de Nice.
