Discover the socca
Don't be mistaken, the socca is not the name of a folkloric dance, but of a delicious specialty of the city! This thin pancake, made of chickpea flour cooked on a griddle in olive oil, is traditionally presented in a paper cone. It is eaten with the fingers, like any good delicacy. Go to the alleys of the Old Nice for a tasting worthy of the name.
Stroll in the Old Nice
Nice is not just about the famous Promenade des Anglais. The city reveals its most beautiful districts in its heart. Old streets, colorful buildings, laundry hanging from the windows... A singular atmosphere, imbued with an Italian past, bathes the Old Nice. Strolling through these charming little streets lined with stores and restaurants is a real pleasure for the eyes and the senses!
Attend the Carnival
The Nice Carnival is the first carnival in France and one of the most famous in the world ! Known for its gigantism and its extravagant floats, it ranks third after Rio and Venice. Parades, music, burlesque shows and flower battles enliven this great popular festival for nearly three weeks each year. See you in February to attend!
Enjoy the local gastronomy
Did you know that several chefs are trying to register Nice's gastronomy as a UNESCO World Heritage Site? That's how proud they are of their delicious traditional recipes! Pissaladière, pain bagnat, socca, ratatouille, ravioli, gnocchi... your taste buds won't be able to resist the assault of these southern flavors. A good dish is always accompanied by a good wine, so let yourself be tempted by a nectar from Bellet, an exceptional vineyard in Nice!
Why not start the evening with an aperitif on the port, then continue with a dinner on the terrace under the stars, and then continue the night at the casino or, for the more night owls, in one of the city's trendy clubs? Nice has an authentic sense of celebration that can take you into the wee hours of the morning! The sunrise over the Bay of Angels is yours!
