Nice may not be as upmarket or as well known as its neighbours Cannes and St Tropez but it still retains a glamorous charm and you won't be disappointed if you choose to take a holiday in Nice this year! The ruins of Colline du Chateau offer a stunning view over the city – you'll be able to see for miles! Nice is also home to an amazing selection of must-visit interesting museums. Finally don't forget a walk along the Promenade des Anglais – you can hire a chaise lounge on the shoreline if your feet get tired.
With most major UK airports offering direct flights to Nice it means that the city is easily accessible ? making it the perfect place to spend the weekend. Budget airlines such as easyJet and Ryanair both offer direct flights so you don't have to pass up the opportunity of a holiday in Nice if you have to stick to a tight budget. British Airways, Brussels Airlines and Flybe are just a few of the other airlines flying into the city. Indirect flights are available from a larger variety of UK airports but you'll be charged slightly more for this privilege. You'll fly into Nice Cote d'Azur Airport which is located six kilometres west of the city.
One of the most reliable ways to reach your final destination from the airport is to catch the bus. You can buy tickets and view the bus timetable inside the terminal ? take into consideration that some buses may require you to buy your ticket once you board the bus so always double check. Some hotels may offer shuttle services so may sure you double check when you book.

Like most cities eating out can sometimes be a bit hard on your wallet. So to ensure that you don't pay over the odds for dinner try to stay away from typically touristy restaurant.

Make sure that you sample socca, the traditional chickpea flat bread.

posted by DVC_ChrisIf you are looking to get a panoramic view of the French Riviera, I have found no spots more beautiful than Castle Hill in Nice. Once you get to the top, although it is 100 steps, there is a small playground, some great stone works, and one of the most spectacular views you will ever see.
