Nice a French City




Places to visit and stay in Nice. Photos and guide of our visit to this large city in the Cote d` Azur region.

For the best views of the town take a walk up to Colline Le Chateau a picturesque ruin. With viewing platforms to see the town and beaches see the Cascades waterfall .The best way to get to Castle hill is through the old town passed the old cemetery.There is a lift if the walk is to much for you by the Hotel Suisse.

The Promenade des Anglais is a pleasant place to walk and be seen. Its has some very elegant hotels along the Promenade with great view of the sea.

The Beach at Nice

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.

The Hotel La Perouse
