Officially the largest event in the Cote d’Azur and one of the largest Carnivals in the world. As such this event should be a item on your bucket list. The Carnival breathes life into the sleepy winter city of Nice and you can feel the excitement in the air during the two week celebration every February.
Perched along the cliffs in the South of France is the charming medieval walled village of Eze. With it’s artsy shops, outdoor cafes, and expansive botanical gardens there is enough to keep one occupied here for the better part of an afternoon.
So you are visiting Nice and you are looking for something to do. Or, maybe you just have a longer than normal layover at the airport. Parc Phoenix is an often overlooked and affordable place to spend an afternoon.
