After Amsterdam, I flew down to Nice to meet my parents who were also on vacation at the time. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for free meals etc especially in the French Riveria. You are in the lap of luxury here and it is hard to ignore the fine food and wine as temptation lies around every corner. As you can see, the beaches are excellent (although rocky) and the views are amazing!
Other suggested day trips: Cannes (where the annual film festival is held). I would have loved to be here for the festival, talk about paparazzi!
Monte Carlo: where the F1 race is held each year and the snazzy Casino also!
