Things to do in Nice France

If you're ever in the South France, you have to visit the gorgeous town of Nice. There's so much to see and do so make sure you allocate your time correctly!

Nice, France.
Nice is the second largest city in France, next to Paris, and attracts attention from tourists all over the world for its prime location in the middle of the Cote d’Azur. There's so much charming Mediterranean character, amazing restaurant scene, museums, a great shopping district, and  beautiful architecture. This area of the world is known as the playground for the richest of the rich but, I promise, there’s plenty to do and see for those of us who don’t live that lifestyle. Whether you're visiting as a short day trip or staying for a week long getaway, there's so much to explore in Nice!

We started off the day by visiting a perfumery in the French Riviera. It was an amazing experience getting a tour of the perfumery and seeing how things are made from scratch. I bought an amazing moisturizer and few perfumes as souvenirs. After leaving the perfumery we headed down to the town of Nice! The views from the bus windows were breathtaking and couldn't wait to explore! This is your free day to explore Nice during this group tour so make every moment count!


After departing at the meet up location, everyone went into little groups and started walking towards the infamous pebble beach. This day was particularly very hot, so most of the people on our tour decided to lay out by the beach and get some sun. I didn't want to spend my time at the beach the whole day at the beach the whole time in Nice so I found some girls who wanted to walk around an explore. Our tour manager mentioned there was a lookout view on a castle so we decided to head over there. It is free to go up to the top of the castle, *TIP* there is an elevator that takes you up! This is where you want to go if you want to see the Nice from up above and get great photos.

After walking around and taking photos, we found a small festival going on and decided to check it out. They had many vendors of food and drinks and it was fun to hang around with the locals. We then proceeded to head back into the town and get some lunch and shop. They have the cutest boutiques in town but they are pricey so keep that in mind! I honestly would come back to Nice in a heartbeat to explore more. I didn't want to leave this amazing place but until next time!

  1. Such a beautiful place and I love places that can be explored by foot rather than moving by car or bus. Hoping one day will be able to visit Nice.
