48 Hours in Nice France

Postby BernieAre on Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:54 am

It’s tempting to sit in a lounger with a bottle of rosé on the smooth, rocky beaches of the Mediterranean. However, there’s so much more to Nice to enjoy. Whether exploring the various parks and gardens, wandering the colorful streets of Old Town, or checking out one of the many museums or galleries, the options for visitors abound. Here are a few of my favorites:

Image

Cours Saleya—This pedestrian-only street in the middle of Old Town was built on ramparts that were dismantled during the 18th century. On Mondays, it’s home to one of France’s most famous antiques market, while the rest of the week, the fruits and vegetable market sets up shop.

Image

Promenade des Anglais—One can’t rightly visit Nice without spending a good bit of time walking along this historical stretch. Running parallel to the Baie des Anges, the promenade is the place to people watch, ride bikes, and enjoy a glass of rosé at one of the many restaurants along the beach. The sunrise and sunset from here are both spectacular to see.

Image

Castle Hill—Climb the incredible number of stairs or simply take the elevator, but make it a point to go to Castle Hill. Now a park and botanical garden, this was the site of the first town founded by the Greeks. There are still some preserved remnants from this time, along with remains of an 11th-century cathedral. Castle Hill also offers one of the best vantage points with views of Baie des Anges, the port, and Old Nice.

Image

Promenade du Paillon—Lined with palm trees, this modern green space in the heart of Nice runs from Promenade des Anglais to the Museum of Modern Art and Contemporary Art. Filled with playgrounds, classic and modern sculptures, and an interactive water feature, Promenade du Paillon is a pleasant surprise. There’s also free wi-fi available for those looking to stay connected.

Museum of Modern Art and Contemporary Art {MAMAC}—With works from artists such as Andy Warhol and Cesar Arman, the MAMAC is impressive even for a novice. The building is just as impressive as the art inside. With glass passageways connecting the four square towers, don’t miss going to one of the rooftop terraces for an excellent view over Nice.

I’m craving another trip to the south of France. As Paris heats up, I can hear the Mediterranean calling my name. I want to watch the waves disappear over the rocky, white beaches. Sipping rosé under a blue and white striped umbrella would be heavenly. And strolling the colorful, narrow streets of Old Town would be a feast for my imagination. There’s something about Nice and Côte d’Azur that leaves me longing for more–48 hours just wasn’t enough.
