Nice, the Queen of the French Riviera is definitely worth your visit! With 7 kilometers of beach, especially along the well-known Promenade des Anglais, Nice has one of the longest and most famous small pebble beaches of the French Riviera. You will fall in love with the Old Port by walking on its quays and admiring the luxury yachts while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. Walk through the narrow streets of the Old City of Nice where tall houses painted with warm colours, restaurants covering half of the street with their chairs and tables, and the famed flower markets meet and create a warm vibe. If you love art, you will want to visit its different museums such as the Fine Arts Museum which houses a collection of French and European Arts from the 16th century up to the 20th century with works by Monet, Boudin, or Sisley. You cannot leave Nice without being amazed by one of its masterpieces – the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, a classic Russian building that might look out of place. Note: Do not forget to try “socca”, a chickpea flour crepe, and traditional food. In the end, Nice possesses all kinds of charms that makes it an ideal destination for your holiday!
