Whether you’re there for a day or ten, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with each corner you turn when you stumble upon a hidden alleyway, a cute cafe, delicious patisseries and bakeries, culture and history in the forms of buildings and churches, and, the seemingly never-ending boardwalk and bright blue ocean. Compiled here is the top 12 things to do in Nice that are not only fun, interesting, and delicious, but they’re also budget-friendly!
I first heard about Nice, France way back in university when two of my closest friends embarked on an exchange there. After hearing about their travels and how much they gushed over the beauty of the French Riviera, I vowed to visit Nice at some point. Thankfully, that time came sooner than I had thought when I recently found myself immersed in the beauty of the south of France. One thing that surprised me most about Nice, having known next to nothing about the city before arriving, was how many interesting little streets and alleyways there were; every turn held a surprise waiting to be discovered.
