Day Trips from Nice: Villefranche Sur Mer

February 22, 2019
Villefranche-sur-Mer, France
It’s our last day in the South of France and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend our last hours here other than the beautiful Villefranche Sur Mer. It’s only about 20 minutes drive from Nice so we won’t be stressed going back to the airport. Our flight departs late in the afternoon so we had the whole day to spend in this beautiful coastal village. After checking out of our hote

Wander Around The Picturesque Tourrettes-Sur-Loup.

February 1, 2019
Tourrettes-sur-Loup, Nice, France
“It looks more real than the other.” The Greek Mister said as our visit to Tourrettes-sur-Loup draws to an end. He meant that this village looks more like a normal village compared to the fairy tale-sque St Paul de Vence which we visited prior to here. While I wouldn’t say that one is prettier than the other, Tourrettes-sur-Loup does have its advantage of not being high on the tourist route –

January 25, 2019
St Paul de Vence
Just a stone’s throw away from Nice lies another gem of this region, the fortified hilltop Medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence. It easily became my favorite village among all the villages around Nice when I first visited it in 2009 and just the same, I fell in love with it all over again during our visit last month. Due to its popularity among tourists who’d like to get a glimpse of its enigmatic

January 4, 2019
Nice, France
5 days in Nice, France is not enough, let’s start this blog post with the ugly truth. It’s just not possible to explore every places mentioned in the guidebooks as well as those off-the-beaten path in 5 days, I reckon it’ll require a minimum of 2 weeks to be able to explore most of it. Most, not all. I plan on living there sometime in the future though because I just couldn’t get enough of i

Day 14: Provencal Tour in Nice, France

August 30, 2009
We were picked up at the hotel at 9 in the morning and we joined an Australian couple and 3 Italian ladies for this Provencal tour. We first went to St Paul Vence, the village of artists. It was really really awesome. The village was once a haven for artists such as Picasso. I loved it and it was the best village we visited for this whole trip. There were lots of small shops offering paintings, sculptures and all o
