Top 10 Day Trips Around Nice a French Riviera Guide

Day Trips Around Nice

Time’s a Wasting! Stop Dreaming & Start Packing for your Summer 2019 Trip to the French Riviera

If you’re a regular to the French Riviera, then you already know that the hip city of Nice with seven kilometres of beaches makes a great base for exploring all that this area of France has to offer – medieval hilltop villages, luxurious villas, Monte Carlo and Monaco, and beaches, beaches and more beaches. And that’s not to mention the great shopping, museums, and French food to enjoy.

So if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of a trip to the Côte d’Azur, the coast of blue, then time’s a wasting. My advice: stop dreaming and start packing! The south of France is not just for millionaires and movie stars any more (though you may see one here and there). With affordable places to stay, local buses and trains for transportation, and lots of sidewalks cafes that won’t break the bank, it might be more within your vacation budget than ever before.

Don’t forget to check out the apartments on page two of the booklet from Paris-Nice Vacations. There are four beautifully appointed apartments in the city’s heart at super reasonable prices. (There’s a great apartment in Paris, too.) Find more information on their website: Paris Nice Vacations.
