As an avid traveler, I always like to be prepared for a new adventure. There is nothing more annoying than missing an interesting site, a great restaurant or a cultural event, especially if it is on the French Riviera. Things become even more tricky if you have only several days at your disposal. What do you do? Where do you go? How do you combine the cultural and gastronomic aspects of the place? How can you experience a place like a local? How do you know that your restaurant of choice will leave you with that wonderful memory of authentic food and ambiance rather than the feeling of disappointment and a considerably depleted wallet?
And so I usually spend hours and hours going through different travel books, googling different sites and trying to get advice from my friends who already visited the place where I am going. The latter is my option of choice since I prefer personal opinions to impersonal information of travel books. Unfortunately, this option is not always available.
“Nice on the Run” is a personal look at the capital of French Riviera. Being owners of an apartment in Old Nice, the heart of the city and the place to be in terms of food, culture and entertainment, my husband and I often treat our friends to personalized tours of the city. Most of our visitors have only a couple of days in Nice, and we try to make sure that they make the most of it. This blog intends to provide my personal advice on what to do, where to go and what not to miss in Nice, particularly if time is an issue.
