Places to visit and top tips:

- For family picnics and romantic strolls take a walk up to the top of the Colline Du Chateau, a small hill bursting with greenery and quaint paths. You can also take the lift if you don’t fancy the climb. The flower and antiques market is ideal for a bit of shopping and smells beautiful as you can imagine. It is not open on Mondays.
- Olive oil tasting at Oliviera, sunset drinks on the beach, a night at the opera or enjoying the views from your sun lounger – it’s all possible in Nice.
