Nice and the Cote d'Azur
There is so much to see, eat, drink and do in Nice and the Cote d’Azur. Our trip included the exciting Monaco Grand Prix, but we took time to visit surrounding villages to make the most of museums and art and food.
Nice in and of itself has much to offer, but side trips (easily done in taxi or uber) to Saint Paul de Vence and the Maacht Foundation, to Eze to the amazing Chateau Eze and Chevre d’Or restaurant were highlights. I also took a tour one afternoon and went to Cannes and along the coast to the castle in Monaco and other typical tourist spots (it was fun and low key and quick).
In Nice, I took a cooking class from Rosa Jackson and that was a fantastic afternoon shopping in the market and then going to her home to cook. We had a lovely time, all 8 of us strangers.
I highly recommend Nice and spending a week there just to enjoy it and its environs without the chaos of the Grand Prix.
