Study French in Nice, the 19th-century port city located just 30 kilometers from the border of France and Italy. Known as the favorite winter destination of the holidaying upper class British and Russians during the 1800s, even today you can still admire the remains of this era. Visit the luxurious hotels, villas and magnificent gardens which make this destination so famous.
Nice enjoys a Mediterranean climate and you will find that fresh produce will even taste better in this luminous paradise-like destination. In fact, Nice’s cuisine has exquisite flavors. Try the famous niçoise salad or ratatouille in its home city, or enjoy a delicious Italian ice cream as you walk through the historical center of town.
Take a walk along the palm tree lined Promenade des Anglais beside the blue waters and if the sun is shining you can even take a dip in the sea. If you would like to get a better view, climb the Colline du Château to reach the platform which looks down over the bay. From here you can admire the classic postcard view of Nice. There is much to keep you entertained here throughout the year, whether it be visiting one of the many art galleries, lazing on the beach or enjoying a refreshing drink in one of the many bars.
Nice’s surrounds are equally as beautiful, such as the idyllic town of Villefranche-sur-Mer or the city of Antibes, places which are worth the effort to visit. If you’d like to experience the life of the rich and famous, you must head to Cannes, the home of the famous film festival.
