Nowhere evokes the bronze, sun-baked glamour of the French Riviera like Nice. A catwalk of fashionistas and holiday hunters, Nice is a hot spot for the rich and famous and the folks who want to rub elbows with the elite. Come for the sun-worshipping and the shopping, the world class restaurants and the beautiful setting. Donâ€™t forget to choose the luxury hotel with the best view of the city!
Start your star-studded tour of Nice on the Promenade des Anglais where the people-watching is unforgettable. Youâ€™ll be impressed by the designer duds and flawless, flaunted tans but the view of the seashore is equally as striking.
I recommend any one of the restaurants with a patio overlooking the promenade such as Le Bistro Gourmand (modern French cuisine), so you have an uninterrupted view of the action. During the day, a trip to the futuristic Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is an excellent way to get a birdâ€™s eye view of Nice between sunbathing and strolling.
Just as lavish and just down the CĂ´te d’Azur is the city of Cannes. This old fishing village has been transformed into a veritable jungle gym for celebrities because of the annual Cannes Film Festival but aside from that event the old city and sea front are lovely. La Croisette is Cannes answer to Niceâ€™s promenade and it hosts upscale boutiques, designer shops, (Chanel, Valentino, Gucci) and world class restaurants as well. Join the crowd on the beach; they are practically gilded with lavishly adorned swimwear and accessories.
If you seek true luxury, make your way to the French Riviera where opulence still reigns. Let Excellent Hotels assist you with booking your luxury hotel in Cannes or Nice.
