Nice is fabulous, a gorgeous city with chic bars, restaurants and full of glamorous people, but there is so much more to see. You are on the doorstep of the entire Cóte d´Azur and you can travel anywhere along the beautiful Mediterranean coastline from Saint Tropez all the way to Monaco. You can drive from town to town, checking out the hotspots and famous towns like St. Tropez, St. Maxime, Monaco, St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and even Cannes which is the home of the famous film festival. All along the coast you will find great beaches, restaurants, glamour and style, as well as some more laid back little towns and villages. They long steak fritte there and having tasted it on many an occasion, I can safely say “don’t miss it”. If time permits it, try to make it a little inland and visit Provence; my favorites were Aix-en- Provence and the Gorge Verdon.
