The city of Nice may be the most famous of the Côte d’Azur. I love how it is a perfect mix between the touristy areas and the more typical ones: The English Promenade Vs. The Old Nice.
Along the sea you will find the English Promenade and if you walk towards the inner part of the city, you will find the old town. Both sides are absolutely gorgeous and I think it is so beautiful how the whole landscape changes. You will pass from perfect turquoise water on the beach, to warm yellow and orange houses surrounded by cute little restaurants.
We arrived in Nice in the morning, went to a restaurant on the beach to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and chilled there listening to pretty cool smooth music.
After that, we went back on the promenade and took a bunch of pictures because all the colors were looking absolutely amazing.
We then decided to climb the famous Castle Hill – not hard at all to climb and the views we got to see made us speechless. We stumbled upon a wonderful park with a lot of kids and families having picnics – it was so cute!
After coming down the hill we decided to go for lunch in the old town and had the very typical “socca” ( a type of tortilla/corn pancake), amazing warm goat cheese salad, and mussels. It was delicious! Of course we could not enjoy it to the max without a little glass of Rosé 😉
Overall it was an absolutely wonderful day and if you go there I highly recommend living the whole experience. Try to explore the city as much as you can!
