Summer in Nice

Ah, the Cote d'Azur, a breezily perfect summer destination. Nice's Promenade des Anglais is an iconic image of this storied bit of coast, while the blooming markets at the Cours de Saleya make for some wonderful sun-drenched browsing. Gogobot users love the romantic restaurants and pebbly beaches, not to mention baguettes. Nice is not all French sophistication, however, with the July "Crazy Week" festival bringing some parties to town.

Promenade des Anglais

The Promenade des Anglais is an iconic boardwalk, perfect for long strolls and soaking up the atmosphere of the Cote d'Azur. Sure, lots of other people will be there, too, but for good reason.

Mercure Nice Grimaldi

Walking distance from the Promenade des Anglais, the Grimaldi stands out for its Art Deco design and roof terrace.

Musee Marc Chagall

Marvel at over 250 examples of this great artist's work, many donated by the man himself.

Cours Saleya

Stop to smell the flowers at the Cours Saleya market, a popular Nice attraction but nonetheless a worthwhile stop. Whether selling flowers in the morning or antiques in the afternoon, the market bursts with local color and culture.

Cathedrale Orthodoxe Russe St-Nicolas

True to its name, this church resembles Red Square's St. Basil's more than anything else. Besides being a great place to escape the heat of a summer's day, the interior is breathtaking and unlike any other place of worship in Nice.

Cimetière attenant au Monastère de Cimiez

This isn't the kind of cemetery that gives you the chills. It sits high above the city, offering unparalleled views of the sparkling coast and is filled with tasteful sculptures, headstones and mausoleums that are more works of art than resting places. A great place to bring a book or just enjoy a...

Fenocchio

The tiramisu gelato at Fenocchio is a true treat, the perfect accessory for a stroll around the streets of Nice.

Casa Mia

While firmly French, Nice is actually just a few miles from northern Italy, and places like Casa Mia betray its secret, with an authentic Italian menu and, for the real afficionado, cooking classes.

Hi Hotel Eco Spa & Beach

Innovative room concepts like vertical layers for sleeping and bathing, or beds that turn into bathtubs and tables that transform into beds, the HI Hotel is heavy on design but doesn't take itself too seriously. Its own bar, restaurant and spa continue the eco-design concept, and the beach is only...

Grand Cafe de Turin

In operation since 1908, this is the classic place to come for seaside summer delights like huitres, moules, and les boissons froids.
