  • Nice (Charms of The Old City)

    Nice (Charms of The Old City)
    One of the main charms of Nice (besides the sea, of course) is the old city, "la vielle ville" or "vieux Nice" like the people here call it. It's a typical old Mediterranean city from the middle ages which has supported very few modifications since the 15th century (at least). As it is a main tourist attraction, there's a regular effort of the city to maintain in good state the architectural heritage of this old city and the whole area is really in a very good conservation state.
  • Massena

    Massena
    The area of Massena is the main center of new Nice. The new parts of the city, which developed in the beginning of the 20th century started from there, just next to the old historical city, both were separated only by the river called Paillon.

  • Coco Beach (Nice)

    Coco Beach (Nice)
    When the summertime arrives, you almost have no chance to find a place on the main beaches of Nice, and perhaps on the whole Cote d'Azur: overcrowded with people, you must be lucky to find a square meter place to sit down...
  • L'Armano (Grugliasco)

    L'Armano (Grugliasco)
    L'Armano is a big old villa from the 17th century, something like 200 meters away from my apartment in Grugliasco... It's a huge farm, including a 2 storey house and a chapel, surrounded by a big garden.
  • Funfair in Nice (France).

    Funfair in Nice (France).

  • Genova

    Genova
    Genova is a beautiful city but don't try to visit it with six friends with different desires; one wants to have a walk on the harbor to see the boat where Roman Polanski shot Pirates, another wants to risk his life visiting little street where you can lose yourself among bad virtues girls, a dreamer wants to saunter on the Palazzi street dreaming about a rich destiny.
  • La Reserve

    La Reserve
    Nice is well known for the beaches along the seafront. During the summer they're crowded with so many tourists that spending an afternoon at the beach is not so nice...BUT, if you know some special places that only people living in Nice are going to, you can spend great time on the beach without the tourist crowd :). One of these places (the people of Nice wouldn't be very happy if they know that I am revealing this nice place...;) is the beach called "La Reserve" near the port of Nice. Go to the port, following the coastal road to Villefranche and directly after the port you'll arrive on the Boulevard Franck Pilatte, and follow the road until the restaurant called "La Reserve".
  • Grande Corniche

    Grande Corniche
    The Grande Corniche is one of the 3 coastal roads going from Nice to Menton and the Italian border. There's the Basse Corniche (lower coastal road), the Moyenne Corniche (middle coastal road) and the Grande Corniche (High coastal road) also known as the road D2564 (see this link for the exact location of the road: "http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html":http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html). This road was constructed by Napoleon the 1st at the beginning of the 19th century and was the only way to go from Nice to Menton. Take the beginning of the road in Nice, near of the port, and follow the signs "Observatoire" or "Grande Corniche". It's climbing until 500-800m above the sea and that's why it's one of the best places to admire the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of the Cote d'Azur. The whole area around this road is a natural park with beautiful forests and a lot of walking possibilities through the park.
  • Walking along the Var river, France

    Walking along the Var river, France
    Who doesn't like walking along a river? It's so peaceful and quiet to see the water, to hear the endless water stream going along his way to the sea... A river is always a place where you can think about a lot of tings, when you're alone or with the one you love, or your friends or anybody else. It can be a river in the city, opening a magic view to a far horizon, or it can be in the forest, in a wide open space... whatever, a river is always magic.
  • Esteron River (Carros)

    Esteron River (Carros)
    Fed up with the beach and touristic crowd of the french riviera?? So why don't you go to the river? I got a very special place to go, revealing a secret place known by a very few people...
  • Beuil / Old village of Mediterranean Alps

  • Islands of Lérins

    Islands of Lérins
    The islands of Lérins are 2 little islands in the bay of Cannes, only 15 min by boat from the port of Cannes. Go until the end of the port and take one of the 2 companies who make the trips to the islands (see the links). Make a nice little journey to these islands which are a nature protected area and not touched by all the constructions and mass-tourism of the whole Cote d'Azur.
  • Market of La Libé

    Market of La Libé
    It's the old market of the "Place de la Libération" named after the allied Victory in World War II and the liberation of the city of Nice in 1944. Since then, the place changed name into "Place Charles de Gaulle" but all the people still name it "la Libération", or best, "la Libé". The market takes place every day of the year, whatever the weather is. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, great quality of fish, spices, flowers and very good Olive oil too... The whole market is very mixed in a very popular mood.
