INSIDER’S TRAVEL GUIDE: NICE

July 25, 2017

Nice, the capital of the Côte d’Azur in southern France, can be as relaxing or as lively

as you choose. Its reputation for opulence is enhanced by its natural beauty. When

the visitors aren’t dashing between yachts or shopping up a storm, they are enjoying

the rich cultural history of the city. For those of you heading on holiday this summer,

we’ve compiled an insider’s guide of attractions and restaurants in Nice that are sure

to wet your appetite for travel.

 

 

WHERE TO EAT

 

L’Acchiardo

The Acchiardo family moved to Nice in the 1920s and opened a restaurant in the Old Town. Generations later, the family are still serving freshly produced, locally sourced dishes. As you’d expect from a family establishment, the welcome is warm and, thankfully, English-speaking. The staff know the menu inside out, which includes beef daube in wine, cod stew and petits farcis. With Provençal wine straight from the barrel, what could be better for a relaxing summer evening?

 

Voyageur Nissart

Following on from our previous suggestion, this eatery is another champion of local food. It would be a great shame to overlook this spot, but it would be easy as there’s nothing visually striking about it. Yet the warm welcome from the staff more than compensates for this, and you get the feeling that the team are genuinely pleased to see you. Local dishes such as lamb with thyme, chicken in lemon or red mullet are served at a very reasonable price - perfect for anyone on a budget!

 

 

WHAT TO SEE

 

 

The Cours Saleya

Nice is famous for its “flower mornings” which take place every day except Monday. On these days, even in the midst of winter, Cours is forest of vibrant colours and beautiful aromas. The French know that a packed morning of picking out fresh stems will fire up your appetite, so there’s a selection of gorgeous old town restaurants adjacent. Take your pick from any number colourful eateries, either in the Cours itself or the winding streets that surround the area.

 

 

 

Musée Matisse

Given the rich cultural history of the south of France, Nice has no shortage of exquisite galleries. Still, if you only want to visit one, the Matisse Museum is probably the best choice. Though born in northern France, Henri Matisse resided in the capital of the Côte d’Azur for most of his life. Here, in a 17th- century villa, Nice celebrates his work with an incredible collection of his art, from the 1890s paintings to his iconic ‘cut-outs’. If you aren’t familiar with Matisse, then I can’t think of a better introduction. If you are already a fan, then you’ll be transfixed.

 

 

WHAT TO PACK

 

To evoke the true spirit of France, why not bring a red watchstrap with you on your travels? Our Bisham design with Mirabelle Blue Alligator strap is the perfect holiday companion, and will be sure to turn heads once you’ve adjusted it back to normal time upon your return.
