The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Nice has truly one of the best micro climates year round. Lots of sunshine and blue skies, even in January and February. During the day you can wander around dressed like it is summer in early Spring and late Autumn/Fall, it cools down in the evening where you would need a jacket in off season, but the summer months are glorious, hot and sunny with lovely cooling breezes from the sea. The bay of Nice (the baie des Anges) is spectacular, day or night, but at night all lit up it is called the "queens necklace" as it resembles a diamond necklace with all the lights along the coast road.
The history of Nice has much to offer with its original ownership being Italian, the architecture has the beautiful colouring of the Cote d'Azur, with incredible lighting reflecting from the pastel shades of the buildings in Old Town. Nice has many fine museums, art galleries and great antique fairs at the Cours des Saleys outdoor market, as well as many outdoor activities such as jogging, hiking, biking, walking, swimming, sailing, fishing, and even skiing in the winter months a short one hour drive away.
Fashion in Nice is incredible, so for the ladies, make sure to make time for some local shopping, the prices are great and there are some truly one of a kind finds in the many boutiques in the Alphonse Karr area, as well as the larger boulevard of Avenue Jean Medecin. Great buys in wines and local delicacies to bring home, or enjoy in your apartment or dining alfresco picnic style on the beach.
Carnevale in February is a fabulous way to kick start Spring. Days are gloriously sunny and warm with the colourful floats of flowers and costumed gentry lining the Promenade des Anglais, and finishing in the evening with a spectacular firework display on the Promenade des Anglais. No need to leave home you can watch this from your balcony on the Promenade or join the crowds in the action.
Great museums in Nice and nearby Antibes, and for those of you who like a little lady luck, Monte Carlo is a short train ride or drive away. Visit Antibes for the beautiful port and old town, and even go inland to Provence for the great outdoor market at Aix in Provence, easily accessible by local coach, or by car. Nice has a great opera, and is a hive of cultural activity. Check it all out by stopping in at the local Tourism Office on the Promenade des Anglais to get up to minute details of what is happening during your stay.
