Nice

Nice is the capital of the French Départments Alpes-Maritimes and is one of the most famous tourism destination on the Côte d%Azur. Starting in the 1850s, even before Nice was part of France, the city was the destination of choice for rich aristocrats from all over Europe as a winter getaway, including Queen Victoria and the Russian Czar. But they were not the first who appreciated the mild climate and the location between the Alps and the Mediterranean. Greek settlers and Roman invaders were here 2000 years earlier. From the Greek period the city still has its name, they called it after Nike, their Goddess of victory. The conquering Romans renamed the town Cemenelum, the name lives on in the Cimiez district of Nice. Here you can visit a Roman arena still in use today and the ruins of a gigantic Roman bathhouse.

Today Nice looks like a museum in architectural history. If you take a stroll through the charming Old Town you will find a lot baroque, classicism, belle époque and art déco buildings next to contemporary architecture. The famous artist Henri Matisse left many of his works and his own private collection on display in the Musée Matisse. Enjoy the local cuisine and try socca, a pancake made of chickpeas flour, or the salade niçoise. Make a daytrip to famous neighboring cities like Monaco, Cannes and St. Tropez and have a great time just relaxing on the beach!

Hotel Massena
This is a real change in style: The Hotel Massena is all Mediterranean, only the top floor is suddenly Philippe Starck. In the lobby everything is still quite normal: The guests check in within a forceful yellow. A look into the salon confirms the trend: An opulent red dominates the room; cuddly sofas invite you to sink in.In the rooms on the lower floors it merrily continues in the Mediterranean way: Mellow orange with dark parquet floor and silk curtains on the bed-heads. Yet if you want a complete change just press the highest button in the lift: Instead of southern flair you will be bombarded with a masculine black and white and an ultramodern design a la Philippe Starck, including rain shower and sun deck with a view over Nice.If you don't want to spend you holiday budget on this room, you can also enjoy the view and the sounds from the other rooms. From the nice square in front of the rooms you can hear the bubbling fountain. Doubles starting at 159,- euros per night.

La Merenda
It's small, it's tight, and sometimes you have to push the tables around to even get a spot. There is no telephone, so you will have to come twice - once for reserving a seat and once for eating. There are only stools without backrests.The million-dollar-question is: What are you doing here? The fact of the matter is: It's worth it. Dominique le Stanc already saw two Michelin stars at Le Chantecler, now he defected to try an entirely new concept: You don't need golden spoons in order to eat well. It works, because the chef is such a wonderful cook that it is impossible to get into his restaurant without a reservation during the season. The food: Authentic, Mediterranean fare, with ingredients fresh from the market and a short, permanently changing menu. The lamb is so tender that it falls from the bone, the onion pizza is divine, and the filled sardines and green pasta with pesto to drop to your knees. The tripe and the stockfish aren't to everyone's taste, but if you've always wanted to try it you should do it here. In line with the moderate ambiance you can leave your platinum credit card at home, since the place is cash-only.

Florian du Vieux
Attention sweet tooth: Here is where you can find handmade chocolates, jelly beans and candied fruits. Free tours of the production area included! The many delicacies are made following recipes from the 19th century.The ingredients include fruits and flowers from Provence, and most of them organically produced. By the way, the shop provides the perfect explanation for why many small presents never reach their intended destination - they are just too seductive not to be eaten immediately!

Cigalon Plage
To experience Nice by car is a challenge in itself. It's more than certain that there will be major traffic jams on the main connections. Thus it's best to leave the city every now and then: for example for the beach in Cagnes sur Mer which is only a few kilometres away. What you'll find there is a turquoise blue sea and hip venues along the Promenade de la Plage. Ideally you spend the whole day at Le Cigalon and begin with a giant tuna salad for lunch - try to avoid the Beef Tartar in extreme heat! Afterwards you make yourself comfortable for a couple of hours on the restaurant's beach chairs and enjoy the infrastructural advantages that's missing in the hidden beach bays. Good souls will come and bring you refreshing drinks while an oversized buddha head watches over the goings-on. Then it's time to get back on the wooden veranda again where you'll be served exotic specialities - which matches the lounge music and the Asian sculpture.
