If you’re planning a vacation in the French Riviera, you’ll most-likely fly in and out of the Nice airport. Don’t just pass through here, make sure to spend a little time in this historic city.
Since you may be hungry when you arrive, the first stop is a local specialty: socca. My husband and I love a little restaurant called Chez Pipo, which serves delicious socca, a pancake made out of chickpeas.
Very close to Chez Pipo, you will also find Vieux Nice (Old Nice). You can stroll through this area and feel as if you have been transported to the 1700s. While here, take a tour of Palais Lascaris. You can visit anytime between 11 a.m. to 6pm (except on Tuesdays and some holidays).
Please note that I visited Nice pre-kids so I’m not sure if the restaurant and palace are family-friendly. Many restaurants in France have a high chairs (chaise bébé) if you request one.
The next day, I suggest taking a nice stroll in Nice along La Promenade des Anglais. This is a palm-lined promenade, paid for by Nice’s English colony in 1822. The entire boardwalk is 4km long. This walk is stroller friendly.
