Nice is a gorgeous city located in this area that will have something for every type of visitor who sets foot on it. Culturally rich, bewilderingly beautiful and absolutely amazing when it comes to the number of places to see and things to do, this city is definitely one of France’s most treasured jewels.
The places surrounding Nice are also very beautiful, and if you decide to stay a bit longer in this city, you could try paying a visit to one of these places as well. Here are some of the most popular ones:
- Cannes. This is the place that holds the famous film festival every year, but other than that, it will be an amazing town to visit as well. The film festival here is definitely one of the biggest attractions, since it will bring together hundreds of thousands of visitors, filmmakers and celebrities every year. However, if you cannot manage to attend the festival, then you will surely enjoy the stunning sights of this 10th century old town any time of the year.
- Saint-Tropez. This is clearly one of the top destinations in France and it attracts celebrities every year. Its luxurious gulf, its troubling history and its absolute beauty will surely mesmerize you as well.
- Monaco. If you have the chance to pass the border into this principality, then get ready to be amazed, because this little country is one of the richest, most culturally aware and most glamorous places in Europe and around the world. It is located just a few minutes East to Nice, so visiting it will definitely be worth it.
- If sightseeing is something you enjoy, then the Regional Park of Auvergne Volcanoes will be something you will love. This huge regional park “hosts” bewildering volcanic massifs, such as the Chaîne des Puys and the Monts du Cantal.
